    where can i get them?? i didn't want to cover the whole light just the yellow parts, it looks really hot because its not a plastic cover but its painted from the inside of the light, looks custom.

    What I would suggest is getting some self-stick vinyl from a sign-makers shop in black (or painting to match) and applying that to the light.

    This way if you change your mind you can peel it off.

    i've seen that before, My Other Cousin Had that On his White Escalade But i Hated the Way it Looked, Because you could see that it was A Plastic Sticker & It wasn't shiney.

    the only way it looks good is painted from the inside of the light.

    I think the proper way of doing this is to take it to a body shop and have them do it. Have them mask off the 2 square parts where the headlights and high beams shine, and also the part for the DRL and then prime, paint (match the color of the truck) and clear coat it. This way at night you won't see the light shine through.

    I guess you do not drive much in the country after dark.!
    Is it legal to cover up that much of your headlights?

    Not Covering the headlights!, just Painting over the Daytime Running Lamps & The Side Reflecktor, But you leave a Small Box for the 2 turning signals (1 is on the front of the light under the Daytime running lamp & #2 is a small signal in the side reflecktor) so your not covering any of the Headlights at all.


    is it just me or am i the only one seeing a 3 Series Bmw on that link^^^
