Yellow lamin-x on w210 for a w123 tribute

I had a bulk of yellow lamin-x left over so I decided to cover my inner headlights. I think it owes a little to the US spec w123 fog lights. I also covered the outer lights with clear lamin-x are a polish and it really added to the shine and depth. I covered the new fog lenses some time ago with clear lamin-x, so she wears it all over now.

That actually looks pretty cool. Does it impede the high beams at all?

It probably makes them a tad dimmer, but the selective yellow color would be nicer in bad weather.

Thanks for the positive comments. The original plan was to use the film on a set of aftermarket projector lights, but I just can't bring myself buy a set. I'm sure the yellow would look way cooler on a black or white car. Lighting has degraded a little. There is an obvious yellow tint, but in foul weather it's a lot easier on my eyes. It looks neat at night with the city lights. I'm really happy with the gloss and depth of the clear film on the low beams.
