Re: What to use to blackout lights
Oh dude, it's ok if the bike leaks out light from the front and back. You don't have to seal it off so it won't escape. There's plenty more light where it's coming from, you don't have to capture it all inside the bike, it won't run out of light if you let it out.
See the way it works is after the sun goes down its very hard to see. Manufacturers of all kinds of motor vehicles have been putting lights on the front so you can see where you're going and lights on the rear so you don't get rear ended. Pretty cool idea.
Also during the day since you can already see where you're going because the sun is out the lights on the bike help prevent other people from running into you.
Surprised you didn't know this.
