I hope this helps.
Yes and as I mentioned before I understand that the DOT stamp doesn't make it legal. I understand that passing inspection does not make it legal also.
But we all know there are loopholes. For instance back in the 90's I had a 78 Camaro (yes I know). The regs say the exhaust had to exit at the stock locations, have no holes, leaks, and cats present. They DO NOT SPECIF
Y it had to have a muffler. So I ran dual cats through baffled muffler tips and viola. Passed inspections no problems. But I did get one ticket for noise and impromper equipment.
I understand that there can be no tint or smoke coloring over the lenses of the headlamps. The lenses MUST BE CLEAR
..I got all that.
Which brings me to my original question:
Does anyone know if the American Muscle Raxiom Halo Black headlights can be used in VA.Not the smoked lens
...but black reflectors.
