I was planning on putting eyelids/eyebrows on my bug eye.... The mod seems to cover up the turn signal, is it considered as a legal modification? I really want to do this mod, but if its illegal I just wont. Anyone Know?

All legality aside...if it covers up a safety feature, I wouldn't think about doing it.

You are modifying a DOT-approved fixture to a different state than when it was originally tested. You tell me if that's legal or not... :rolleyes:

That being said, I doubt you'd be pulled over for it.

Both of those being said, your turn signals make your intentions clear to other drivers, which helps keep them from running into you. Like Mikie said, it's an important safety system, and I would not compromise it.

My bugeye is black, so if I were to do this, I would install brighter turn signal bulbs, and then apply a section of tinting film for the eyebrow look (not covering the headlight beam), which the turn signal could still shine through.
