Lamin-X Headlight Covers ( Gunsmoke )

I got my headlight covers yesterday and installed them. Didn't get to take any good pictures with my camera because it was night time bout time I finished but I got these cell phone pictures. The install was a pain trying to do it by yourself. The film didn't seem like it would fit all the way without blow drying it and sorta stretching it. But with my dads help blow drying it while I was trying to get it aligned correctly seemed to work pretty well. There is some cloudiness from pulling and reapplying etc, hopefully it will go away in the following weeks.

Visibility hasn't been reduced by much, especially with HID's, still very bright white. I got some pictures of the night shots on my other camera I'll load up tomorrow.

I also have the charcoal taillight covers but I haven't installed them yet. I'll get them done here in the next few days with better pictures of both of them.

Heh did you read the description? They have a very small reduction in light output. Still brighter than stock.

How's this any different than having tinted tails?

I think there are many more cars on the road with tinted tails than headlight so having the tinted headlight is much more noticeable IMO.

Cop's will have to be coming from the opposite direction to even notice, and with my DRL's on it' won't stand out that much anyways. Tails on the other hand a cop can be behind you going the same direction and take notice much more easier.

The hardest part is getting it aligned correctly. The second one was much easier, the first one took forever, removed and reapplied probably 100 times heh.
