    I've seen EF, EG and some Integra headlights with the yellow tint and some corner lights. But I've never seen it done to EK headlights.





    Anybody have pics????????????

    I'm really just talking about the corner section. I want to get the blue bulbs, but have yellow or amber outside.

    you can legally run blue lights as long as they are dot approved. you'll lose the effect of the blue light(if that's what you're going for)if you get yellow corners. they will light up yellow and the purpose of getting blue ones will be defeated.

    I'm saying blue headlights, but I'll go with yellow or amber corners. I like the contrast. I see what you're saying, though. I don't want my whole headlight yellow. (I really don't like the way that looks(don't tell anybody that I said that))

    You could probably find a pre cut set for the entire headlight, and then xacto the corner off to the desired shape... I didn't really look into the the site much, i just seen an ad in Car & Driver.

    yeah great idea, you could cover your lenses with saran wrap and it would be just about as effective. i wouldn't waste my time with tint. after you wash your headlights a couple of times the tint's gonna fall off. water and glue don't mix well. just go get the amber corners. they won't look fake like tint will. that and you won't be able to see the edge of the tint on em. you can get a pair for like 20 or 30 bucks.

    someone was telling me about some kind of paint you can get that's tinted but clear.
    i've never seen the stuff myself but this guy did it to his lights and they look factory(almost. the dumbass didn't mask em off right) he said it's cheap and you can get it at checker auto or napa. check it out.
