Did you know you can tint the headlights of your car too? That’s right! Tinting isn’t just for the car body painting and windows. There’s a range of types, compositions, and colors for headlights.
Here’s what you should know about headlight tints before you choose a shade and model.
Headlight tinting is covering vehicle headlights with film to darken them or change their color. If you appreciate originality and love customizing every detail of your car, these are for you.
Headlight tints can completely change the look of your vehicle, with a quick and agile application. The film protects your lights from road debris, preventing scratching, chipping, and denting.
Like most tints, they are highly resistant to UV rays and warm temperatures preventing the lights from yellowing, getting dirty, or wearing out.
Before we look at different tints, keep in mind that your headlights need an intense white or yellow glow to be seen from a distance.
So besides giving your car that stylish look, the right shade makes sure you get enough brightness and observe the laws in your state.
Shield your headlights and taillights, and add style with this colorful protective film. Elevate the look of your car without losing any brightness. They’re perfect if you’re looking for quality.
Its 75-micron composition is just the thing for headlights and lamps. Available shades range from light to mid-shade, some darker than PPF. The quaitty of protection is not as high, though.
This darker film is recommended for tail lights. It blocks out too much light making it illegal for headlights.
If you like playing around with style, colored tints are great for innovating without breaking the bank. But even though they come in a range of colors, they’re illegal in some states. Check out local regulations or talk to an expert to find out whether the film you want is legal.
That depends on the film. Standard tint films can last from two to three years, while colored PPF can make it to 10.
But that doesn’t stop you from switching to a lighter shade or different type of film before. Here at Pelicar, we change and remove films, keeping the risk of damage at a minimum with the right techniques.
That depends on what you’re planning to change. Massachusetts law says it’s illegal to modify headlights and tail lights unless you’re optimizing visibility or safety.
So as long as modifications don’t hinder visibility and signaling when driving, it won’t be a problem.
There are only restrictions for darkening lights and changing the lamp color.
Headlights or lights of any other color than white or yellow (and in some cases, red) – are not recommended. Any visible light projected ahead of the vehicle should be white or yellow.
