So your on about spraying over the already poor light output of the t4 lights?

Great idea. NOT!

Spray lights, have a crash and die.....don't do it fella its a silly idea.

There are plenty of other mods you can do that will make it look good.

Indicators at so cheap you could by some white or crystal ones. :ILU:

Tell the rozzers that, does your mate have a saxo by any chance?

I don't think its talking wet, I just think you would be wise not to do something that may jeopardise the integrity of you/passenger safety. It is a fact afterall that the T4 headlights are poor in the first place.

NO ITS DONE TO A T4..................................the lights are fine with very light spray... the spray is designed for lights aint it!!!!!........................................... ...............................................

Anyhow..... he was asking if there was anything he could do to lights,,,,,, and all i'm saying, it looks nice.... and my bro had no trouble with lights on his t4,,, he's had them done for months......

If you don't want to spray the outside, you could always take the lens off and paint the non reflective parts inside the lights, this way you aren't actually sparying the lights. when your lenses are back on it will look like the lights are smoked without making your lights more dull. I heard about this from a friend who has done this to some lights from a golf, I've thought about doing this myself but was going to try it on one from a scrap yard just incase it f:cks it up.

Zetec-s lads do this too. Quite effective, and of course doesn't affect the light output in any way ;)

As far as I am aware, billet's lights are black due to the fact he has covers over them that are sprayed body colour (they come off when the lights are needed)

And as far as anything that would cut the amount of light that is given off by the already poor T4 headlights, not wise in my opinion.
Mine are already slightly worse than having a couple of candles on the dashboard !!
