stock headlight housing customizing

ok so when you look at your head lightsthe housing has a cone like shield opver the bulb that reflects the light off of the bulb back onto the housing and then out of the lense...

what would happen if we took the shield that covers the bulb up out? if i gut it out would the lights be brighter or just a bad beam pattern

anyone ever done this?

That cover is there so you don't blind oncoming driver's with your low beams.
