Default Anyone blacked out their headlights?

Any input much appreciated. Would love to see how it would look with the 2012 hawkeye style headlights.

If you are young and hip enough to tint your headlights light output is not the first concern.

I guess I'm not young or hip enough, then. I'm trying to remember if I was ever young and hip enough....

Actually anyone who writes "hip enough" isn't hip enough to tint their headlights.

Fog lights are another story.

I got the Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit (D2S) off of the retrofit source, I got a buddy to help me with it. You got to take the bumper off to remove the lights, bake the lights and open them up, and then you would blackout/paint the chrome inside, do some cutting, install the shrouds, slot in the projectors, put in bulbs, connect ballast, harness, and relay, put lights together, install in car. Those would be most of the steps simplified.
