You can see the lights but if I do a couple more coats it will look better , I left them off tonight and got a lot of compliments on them , I like the look and hey can't beat the 5 dollar cost of plasti dip , I also did my back gt logo and the muffler tips , going for the stealth look , plan on dipping the badges as well

I like. I started off like this but eventually bought emblems in black and did a deck lid. Now kinda going for black with very little red.

Definite stealthy, I like it. At a show today a guy had a 2005 GT Roush Stage 3. He added stripes and accents with very high quality 3M carbon fiber look film. I haven't downloaded the pics yet. It looked awesome.

Plasti-dip on the lights? Seems counterproductive and hard on the lights. Make sure you never turn them on, I'm not sure the housing would be able to handle the built up heat that's isn't able to escape.

They get pretty hot. Trapping that heat in there? Asking for trouble. I agree don't turn them on.

Led light are exponentially more efficient than halogen bulbs but there is still plenty of energy that's needs to escape and light energy does not move through plasti dip. I'm not sure how much heat would build up but I wouldn't risk it either

They produce far more heat than people seem to think.

I have plasti dip on my exhaust tips and it hasn't melted, caught fire , bubbled or had anything else happen too it and these tips get pretty hot . I think you will be fine with it on the lights.

It isn't the plastic dip that is an issue. The light housing might start melting......

For the horse I just taped above on the hood lip and the bottom part of the grille , and just sprayed back and forth a couple times , and the lights just taped around the plastic cover , and a little around the over spray area
