    I'm doing the BHLM right now and can't decide if I wanna tape off the blinker portion or just spray the whole thing black? What do you guys think? I just wanna make sure my blinkers will still be bright.

    You won't lose so much brightness. Run out to auto part store and get some VHT Nite-Shades and tint the blinker cover. Give it just one coat.
