it you use very light film or a very thin coat of niteshade paint you would lose much light at all

It wont matter. Even if you were to do a light layer, you will still lose light if you are running OME bulbs. They dont put out to much light. If you ugrade to Xenoum or H.I.D. then you will be good. ALSO, depending on the way the headlight is made, that will confirm the dimmer lighting. If you did a HELLA light coat, then yes, but that wont give you the right "look".

Rolled the film over the lights I wanted to tint, then used a credit card to smooth out all the bubbles, then trimed the film around the lights. The best part about it is with the film I used was no glue is needed its just static clingy so if I dont like how it looks I just peel it off

I went to walmart picked up the tint film strip that is made to go on your windshild. The film is a stadic clingy no glue is need. I rolled it on to my tails smoothed it out then trimed. 1 roll cost about 3 bucks I bought 2 so if I messed of on the trimming. Im not sure how much you want to cover but the strip worked perfect for me
