Hey, I hate to make a possibly unneeded thread, but I have my headlights cracked open at the moment, (painting the inside reflector black) and am wondering a few things. Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm replacing my amber turn signal bulbs with white bulbs, In many tutorials for doing this I've read people have either used RC spray on tint for their turn signal lenses, or have sanded and blacked out the turn signal reflectors

Is it absolutely necessary to do one of these with the replacement clear bulbs? Will it be obnoxiously bright without doing either of these?

Then don't post it if you knew it was a repost

at least I was helping could have said SEARCH!

Also, I have never used "rc" spray I use black candy, or nightshades when I have tinted tails etc...

Thanks for the help.... Believe me I've read every single thread I could find about painting headlights, and this specific question (whether or not you can just leave the turn signals, and the reflectors stock with clear bulbs) was not answered in any of them..
so technically it's not a repost, and obviously I've searched this topic cause I didn't just crack open my headlights by using my third wish.

Didn't even know there was one being planned.... Sounds like fun and I'm actually off for the next week (thus delving into the time consuming headlight mod)

well personally, i had my turn signal lenses smoked!

You got to remember we have two bulbs on each side, so that means its blinding if we put two HyperWhites in there! After getting mine smoke out it still looks the same! Heres a pic
