with reflector, or not? (pics) [page 2 update]

so i cleared my headlights. then awhile later i blacked out the housing. now i'm thinking about putting the orange reflector back in... heres some pics: (ignore my dirty car, my hand blocking the sun, and the tape holding the reflector on).
ALSO: should i black out the housing behind the orange if i decided to put the orange back on?

NOW:


OR THIS?:

I think it looks good the way it is, but if you do wanna put the amber back in I would say leave the lights the way they are, when it is black behind the amber I think it does not look that good, it seems dirty instead of clean IMO...

Dont care to much about it being illegal, but true, the amber looks the best




Ambrer rocks! .......... but if for any reason you dont do amber, paint the bottom reflector part.

it's only illegal if you don't have an amber bulb. think of saturns. some have clear lenses but orange bulbs.
