Great tutorial... you just saved me ordering smoked headlights on ebay for $150

One question. What do you do with the signal indicator lamp? I'm guessing it's the same procedure. I didn't even notice any orange colour left in the "after" pics. Great job.

This site is awesome for saving money.

I think the corners were clear aftermarket ones. They dont have orange in them at all. I like the 2006+ corners done this way better.

Aftermarket clear

2006+ modified corners

Thanks for the comment. The 06' lights do look great! To bad I've got an 05...

I think I might pick up a set from the local wreckers... or just get a set of clear on ebay. Whichever is cheaper

Only if you paint the reflector, or smoke the lense.

Must not have looked at the pictures posted huh?

Clearly you can see they are masking off the reflector.

There's his problem, depending on the model most Chevy lights are entirely reflector.

The wreckers probably won't work out cheaper than $8.50/light. LOL. I just bought these ones on ebay for the side lights. I think they will look good with this headlight MOD.

Be sure to use amber color bulbs! Cops can be picky and use it as excuse to pull you over.

Thanks for the tip. I haven't been pulled over in about 6 years... But it just takes one mean cop and I'll be on the side of the road pealing my 35% tint, removing my smoked rear tails...and now removing corner lights.

I really don't want amber... But I suppose as an engineer working in transportation... I should know better.
