    Does the signal lights that are the DTRL's show well?? because i did mine, but i painted the signal reflectors, and nightshaded the yellow lens.... Im taking mine apart this weekend to take the nightshades of those lenses...but, im thinking of repainting the chrome look back on for brighter DTRL's....what do you guys think??

    I dont think i titled this very well....im asking if, since there seems to be pretty low visibility of the DTRL's with the BHLM painted on the reflector, would it be good to just repaint the reflector chrome, just for that added visibility?

    I don't think its worth it. I painted behind in my first bhlm. But with my new retrofit I taped it off and lightly tinted the lenses so that it will be easier to see

    It will probably be better, but chrome paint will still not reflect like the stock reflector. If you want stock brightness, you may need to get another set and start over, then sell your current set.
