Has anyone Nightshaded their headlights?

Thinking about nightshading my stock headlights/corners. Not black them out, just give them some tint. Has anyone tried this?

That is the stupidest thing, why would you want to diminish light output.

Oh and headlight blackouts aren't any worse? I had blackouts on my silverado and it was fine. Just a thought.

My friend did it on his new Tacoma, he had some shop do it and it was like as dark as 5% window tint. At night it wasn't bad, it didn't make too much of a difference. The only thing is he had a drop in HID kit too so IDK how it would be with halogens. He took it back to the place and had them take it off though since he got some brushed wheels and it looked weird, otherwise I would have taken a pic for you.

Do the headlight mod.

Don't go all gay painting or covering the lenses just because you have some Niteshades left over. Maybe that just means your tails aren't dark enough if the can isn't empty.

Cuz if you do, I'll be sure Jimmeh and I come kick your ***.

One of the most famous Impala's on the Impala SS sight has tinted headlights. He says his light out put is better than stock because he has an HID kit. He said when it was still stock it was not that bad.
