Question Removable Tinted Headlight Covers ??

Anyone make them for our cars ?

If so, who ?

I've yet to see them out there. I'm looking for the kind that attach with small pieces of Velcro.

FWIW:

You could probably make some for about 1/3 of the cost. Just get some tinted plexiglass and cut them to size.

I ran these on a lowrider pickup of mine 20 years ago. They diminish light output and beg officers to pull you over. I'd never consider running them again, as I want my lights as bright as possible. YMMV however.

My 40+ year old eyes would never agree to tinting my headlights.

Mustang Smoked Headlight Covers (10-14) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

I want to get some and plastidip them, yeah obviously that's not good for visibility, so I'll remove them at night. These attach via clips or you can use velcro.

Hence the exact point of this thread titled "REMOVABLE"


Common sense dictates when it gets dark out, you pull over and REMOVE your car's tinted headlight covers.

They do deminish the lighting at night but I've read that if you upgrade the h.I.d headlights then u really can't tell a difference

Probably depends on the car and the covers, but from what I recall, the ones I had on that F150 weren't a simple "pull over and REMOVE" sort of deal, but what ever.

Back in the day, a company called "GTS" seemed to corner the market on plastic removable headlight and taillight covers. Maybe try them???
