I would be worried that tinting the headlights would really cut down on light output, and cause a safety issue.

i agree with that. but one thing that i am doing to my tail lights is getting them professionally painted with a spray gun. im just gonna leave the white part of the tail light unpainted. its gonna look sweet.

i could not get this to work for anything. At the edges it just wouldnt stick and smoothen out. I think it was my brand of tint cause yours looks thinner and crisper. sucked haha i actually sweated trying to get it to work but oh well, maybe i'll buy a different kind and try again

be sure to clean light with alcohol, sunlight/warm day or a heat gun to help with curves
