i would just head over to ebay, buy a foot or so of whatever Avery or 3M wrap vinyl was the closest to the color of your car and have at it.

personally when i see a neon with those i immediately profile the driver as a specific type of person, i assume the police do as well.

I love that kind of profiling with the PT. It is why I can blow by the police at 20-25 over without them so much as changing their gaze. Old white guy, suit, PT Cruiser? He must be going 55.

I was already thinking vinyl was probably going to be my only option, but I figured I'd make sure I didn't miss something already available. Vinyl will be easy to copy the two sides. I'll just need to do some photoshop to get it right. Maybe I'll start a contest... I don't mind being profiled... if people assume I'm a jacksss, they're probably right. Maybe it'll irritate them enough that they try to line up with me. If the cops decide to check me out, it'll give me a chance to thank them for their service.

that's all i did above, but i use coreldraw. it lets you draw, move and fill shapes. it's what i draw signs with.

interestingly, if you do the top and bottom of the light, it looks like an old guy squinting to see the road:

Yawning a wavy upper Like in the neon pick could give you what you want.

That's kinda what I'm thinking... The headlight shape is different enough that it forces some creativity. I also need to make sure it doesn't dramatically reduce the light output... I'll probably have to literally print a picture of the front end and draw some out by hand. Photoshop is a talent I never took the time to master. I've seen all sorts of cool ideas "created" that way, but my skill set lies... elsewhere.

The headlights on the PT's are crappy enough. I don't see the need to cover any of the insufficient light on mine. I need all I can get!

I can understand that... mine is not a daily driver, so I'm less concerned about that.
