I am just curious why most people, especially those who have the stock headlights, don't clear the front amber piece. I know I def want to; what do you think the best way to do it is? Take out the amber or just put a sticker over it? Does anyone have pics of their's cleared? Thanks,
Evan

Some people like the amber look...i think.
But for me, I just too lazy to spend 3-4 hours on opening up the headlights to take the amber piece out.
I plan on maybe doing a retrofit of some hid projecters, so I might as well do everything at once.

I spray painted mine black when I blackhoused.

Most people probably don't because it's a PITA to take the lights apart, especially for something like that.

Partly because cleared is boring, I mean theres nothing too it, no color, just clear.
And the other reason is the same reason why more people don't buy big block 500 cubic inch chevy v8's. Why someone wouldn't want that I don't know....

because it's only an accord and what kind of conversation topic is, "Look, I cleared my headlights!"
I wasn't really looking for a conversation topic. I'm just looking for a cleaner, more european looking front.

Evan,

I prefer the amber look because the trend nowadays is JDM this... JDM that... JDM everywhere. The cleared out look is only good for the older Hondas since it gives a cleaner appearance. The cleared out look is sooo 1999 anyways. :angel:

Checkout the DIY blackhousing project. Very simple thing to do but time consuming. Looks really nice! BTW, at the SEMA show they supposedly had a 7th Gen. Accord headlight already done in the usual JDM style look (black housing). Not sure if it's available but I would glady spend money on that rather than tearing apart my OEM lights and risking problems with moisture and what not.

Maybe because it's illegal.
