are you headlights foggy right now since it's raining? if so i think you didn't seal them good enough.

lowincash, I can't tell, what's the difference, it looks stock to me.?

is it this with the orange thingy? I can't tell from those angles.


Personally I'd black out the corners and the marker strip, and just get an amber peanut bulb if you like an orange marker strip.

that's what was in here, except a white peanut bulb.


and it lit up pretty happy


but then again these housing are gone so I can't really talk

Yeah it looks like you didn't seal them very well .

No Kin, leave it with the corners un-painted, that's how I'd want my headlights if I blackhoused them (except I would probably take out the orange strip). IMO, I don't really like the corner all blacked out.
