im sure dude this is some legalities redarding tintin any light...guys on here have done it to there stop/tail lights...but very thin covering....either way tho it still dull or hinders the output of light...tinting the frond covers made i'd seriously advise you against it...

have you been in strife for the LED washer jets cause they arent legal either.....like the neons i spose but im sure your running them thru a bypass toggele switch or soemthing

Just get some headlight covers and paint em black, or use that tinting paint. That way, you can take them off when mr policeman gives you grief or at nighttime.
I did that on a black ZL fairlane i had, didnt look to bad being all black with black lights (covers).
Id wouldnt paint the blinker part though

Cop from the TMU(Traffic Managment Unit) in Deer Park, Melb told me that.

ok well as far as I was aware and heard...they like neons due to how bright they are and are easily visble are a distraction to other motorists and therefore shouldnt be used on public espescially busy roads etc....i wont 100% say there illegal but know a guy who had a wrx with blue LEDs....and he got done for em when he was stopped by random RTA road side inspection...dunno if he had other things that werent legal that they then pciked on him for them too.

there are a few people on here who have headlight covers, which come off pretty easily for night time.. just leave them on during the day.. maybe look into that

Being a REX, there 99% of the time woulda been more s**t, and the cops were pickin on him. As they do with any car thats "fully sick" or the cops have had a slow day and needed something to make them look like they were actually doing work.

The best way is to ring the Traffic Management Unit in the area (dont know what its called in your state sorry, but not the local cop shop as they know f**k when it comes to puttin s**t on cars......

I asked the locals if I could have my Dixie Horn, and they didnt know....(found out later Im not supposed to, but thats why I got a big a*** tickford logo hiding them) So yeah, I do beleive the actual tube neons are not allowed. And neither are coloured parkers.

Back to your original question, headlight covers are the way to go....Im gettin a pair airbrushed with dinosaur eyes as we speak....
