    SOooooo...

    tomorrow im going to attempt to knock out the black head light mod, and day time running lights so that they come on when i turn my Running lights on..

    a few questions tho... the BHLM.. the clear/yellowish lense that covers the DTRL bulb.. is there a way to make that clear or so that it is NOT yellowish?.. ive seen ppl take it out completely, but ive seen some that look like it is more clear after BHLM then it was before hand..

    thanks in advance guys

    As for the clear inserts... the older headlights were clear to start with. The newer ones have the tint

    I'm gonna bump this thread. Anyone have any recent or other ideas on getting that DTRL lense clear? (not buying another set of lights solely for that clear lense).

    I don't think it's really possible without changing it out. It looks like the plastic itself is smoked to me...

    Changing it out isnt a problem since they're apart right now. Didnt know if someone tried epoxying in some other clear lense or something though.
