Question Headlight modification help

So I've have been looking on the forum and searching every corner trying to find how some make there headlights look "mean" looking. By this I mean either making or buying covers for the headlights so it makes the headlights look mean. I'm not sure what they are called or how some did it, but I like the look and would like to make the modification on my jeep. If you have any idea about what i'm talking about please let me know.

Thanks,

Matt

Angry eyes. Or electrical tape on the cheap.

Jeepbass, picture didn't load, at least not on my computer.

Jbib1089, Great idea with the electrical tape! It would at least give me an idea of what they would look like before I buy anything.

No need to buy anything except tome painters tape and a can of matte or satin black spray paint. If they get dinged by a rock or something, just throw a fresh coat of paint on.

Depends on how permanent you want it to be. If you want it to last, then get some masking tape and flat black spray paint. Just mask them until you're happy with the results and spray away.

Also, I have done this for Halloween one year and used electrical tape. It doesn't let the light through and gives a cool effect. Then when you're done with it, you can just peel it off.

I hope this helps!

I think i'm going to see how the tape works and let it sit a few days and see if I like it. I've never seen one in person, so having a way to reverse it if I don't like it makes me feel better.

Thanks for the tips and opinions!

To each his own, I think the angry eyes look silly. Just my opinion...
