can i just ask why? your not going to be able to see at night....

i recommend just painting the inside of the lights, minus the refelctor black... looks much better

It looks kinda like this, depending on your year:



However, I recently saw a truck on the Snapshots board with Nightshaded headlights and corners. It looked sweet!!!

yeah, the headlight mod will be better. Putting tint over your headlights just doesn't sound legal.

that guy is pretty expensive, but by the pictures that I've seen he does some pretty good work. Well worth it if you want it done right and don't think you can do it yourself
