View Full Version : OEM headlight Question !!

11-06-2005, 04:40 PM
i just installed my silverstars not to long ago and i noticed a metal heat shield like thing in my headlight housing ive noticed on aftermarket headlights this aint on them... just curious if i can remove these to make a cleaner look and let the silverstars reflect their colors off the chrome in the headlights :heh:

also if you could post the cons about doing this that would be great.. id asume it would be alot hotter on the housings also is light output affected or better with these out ?

Please & Thanks
