Icon7 Finished my Black Headlights/Corners

I'm loving this mod. Gotta get some new turn signal bulbs though, the orange is flaking off of them.

Looks good, I like it. Just get clear bulbs in there, don't get yellow again, it'll look much better. Swap the corners to clear bulbs while you're at it.

I can't in Michigan, technically I'm supposed to have orange reflectors in the corners as well.

Technically you are supposed to have them in all states. I have been running no amber lights on my truck for about 4 years with no problems at all. You could always go LED if you wanted to.

Silverstar makes a bulb that will fit into those that are a blueish/clear tint then when lit they are orange.

I did them myself, they could have turned out better, but I shake like a dog ****ting in a berry patch. But I'm probably the only who can see the mistakes so who cares :P
