Well, I never drive around with my light cover's on because i hated the looks of the Hella 500 covers. They just yelled "cheap ass" and they are ugly as hell IMO.


So, instead of getting pulled over and ticketed, I painted mine.

I used Rustolem Hammered spray paint.*

Cheap fix, looks a thousand times better.


* yes, i know the light covers are the color they are to let some light through, but, oh well.

Why would you get ticketed? For the extra lights?
I used that paint on my license plate frames. Great stuff!

what's wrong with the regular Hella covers? why do you feel they are cheap?

are the TT fog lights and "FJ" covers re-branded Hella 500s? if so, getting a set of those covers would be sweet.

1) I think the design of them are just ugly (logo, etc)

2) They are wal-mart lights, low end.. blah blah.


I don't like the TT covers.. to much FJness.

what about these options?

1) bondo or sand wherever necessary to remove all evidence of the Hella logo, paint matte black to match the Demello bumper

or

2) should they fit, buy the FJ covers and paint them matte black as above

I don't know if you have made a thread for it, but the new 3 hoop Demello Offroad bumper looking flipping SAWEET Dom!

I am not a huge fan of the Hella covers myself. That alone has made me think of getting the FJ ones. But i need a light bar to mount my 4 lights first.
