    How to Blackout lights?

    I am considering Blacking out my lights. How have you done your lights? I can't find any after market black lights for the H3T.

    Most guys who have blacked out light lenses have used this stuff, VHT NiteShades

    Yeah I sent hours searching the web for products from AVS ad a couple others to find absolutely nothing. If anyone did make taillight covers it seems they don't now.

    I've seen blacked out tail lights and turn signals for sale on eBay just a couple days ago. About $200 for set. It's on my list but I will probably for the time being just spray them.

    does this spray shade affect the reflective qualities of the tail lights?

    I had my lights blacked outed out using film. Looks much better lets see how it holds up. I changed the foot well and dome lights to RED LEDs for a different look.

    You can also use plastidip as alternative to VHT. It is much easier to do.

    I put VHT on the H2. It turned out great. I then swapped the bulbs for LEDs. No issues here.
