    Customized STS Headlights and Foglights

    Cadillac STS headlights have the habit of leaking water and ruining the chrome so I decided to spruce mine up a little bit by repainting them flat black. Does anyone know if this is actually street legal or if there is actually a market for people wanting something like this. Any feedback would be appreciated. I'm pretty sure resealing them will fix the leak problem.

    Don't see why it wouldn't be street legal, only think it would look good on a black one though...

    The only issue I see is the turn signal reflector no longer being reflective.
    I can see Police not liking that as a safety concern, I have wanted to replace that with an amber panel of LEDs instead.
    Perhaps you could find a rectangular LED panel with bright amber LEDs and retrofit that into the DRL / Turn signal spot.

    Not my thing -- too much like a CTS, but to each their own.

    I think it would look good on a black STS as well, especially a V.

    Dont think I like the halos but they might look much better with the OEM projectors! I like the blk housing idea.

    Here's a look at the pair of HID headlights we ended up making also. The fog lights didn't turn out so great once I put an amber bulb in them so I'll have to come up with a better idea for those. I try to stay away from aftermarket LED stuff, but I may end up opening the light back up and trying to put some different bulbs in.

    I want to do a led conversion like the sts sae 100. Maybe new escalade led headlights can be the donor. By the way those look good
