Recon ? regarding headlights

Is it illegal to have your turn signal lenses and parking light lenses tinted yellow? Thanks in advance.

I only ask because I've been considering picking these up. I already have recon and I don't want any hassles. I've had too many encounters with 5-0 in the past from the other cars I've had.

I don't know about HI but I painted mine completely white (including where that set is tinted yellow) and have not had any run ins with 5.0.

Do it, its not that hard to swap out headlights, just that one damn screw... but i think you shouldn't have a problem with HPD. maybe when you go for safety check? but yeah i highly doubt they'll even really check it.

Since you already have that stupid stick(recon) i dont see a problem since cops are looking for other important things, but like someone said above it also depends on the policeman's mood, but really..... i dont see a problem. Clear corners and blue tint/lights/bulbs are the ones that are really noticeable and will guaranty get you BUSTED, it did for me. I had a F150 with the front Ford logo lighted blue and i got pulled over in Waikiki, pulled me over and asked about the light and he just gave me a ticket for the light, never take away my recon or have me scrape it off so you should be safe and wont loose it even IF they pull you over for the lens
