    need opinion from people... do you think I should do the yellow film tint on my fog lights and bull bar lights or no... i cant tint them in regular black cause of DE state laws or I would just do that to black everything out.
    here is a pic of the front end of the truck

    Get yellow bulbs the tint sometimes melts if you aren't moving.

    See build thread.
    I would just buy some stained glass paint at an art store and put a couple coats on them. Cheaper, easier, and looks better. Its on page three of my build thread if you wanna take a look.

    Honestly with that color truck, I think you should leave them clear like that and install yellow bulbs instead. I have some PIAA plasma ion yellow bulbs for my driving lights behind my satoshi and they look real good IMO.;) If not, do what Andrew H said. Oh and have you thought about just doing a light tint instead of blacking them out or is that illegal too?

    the yellow doesn't look good on any of the tacos to me. i only saw one speedway blue that looked ok with it. it just doesn't suit your truck. but that's just me

    Are you sure you can't tint the fogs? As long as your regular headlights are untinted, I would think it would be okay.

    Personally, I don't think there is anything "rice" about it... it is a functionality thing. Yellow cuts through fog better.
