    Why not Spray a Transluscent candy over the originals?

    If it's a car you drive on the street you can just put colored saran wrap on them. It'll cling until you pull it off (like when you get ready to drive on the street!)
     
  9. I have done this on several vehicles for taillamps and it works freaking awesome!!!!:D

    1) Why did they do this?

    2) i think the regan administration was the last to use this on their limos (the high-beam position red) This was on the latest episode of frontline---the one about polluted water systems.

    I know you can get 4" in yellow and blue, Drag specialties carries them. i was running a yellow on my bike. Also like stated above, just spray them. My buddy did one on his streetglide with a tinted clear, worked out perfect. There is a shot of the yellow one I used in my gallery here.

    How much will a thin coat of that Metalcast affect the normal opperation of the headlights?
