Hood glare

I've created a unique problem I put grakon 5000 cablights on my truck that's 17 LED's in each one 85 LED's in all they put a bad glare on the hood that's distracting would a visor of some kind fix this ?

I don't know yet but big bugs are easy to see as they go past I like how they light up street signs though easy to read lights up bright orange and makes my truck look like its on fire

Here's one possible solution I guess just dim them a little bit I was thinking about one of the visors and get it electro dipped chrome that would look awesome here's a link to the dimmer.

How about you take them OFF and put the factory ones on.

If you put that dimmer on, it defeats the purpose of having those obnoxious big lights on there

u dont need that fancy dimmer, u can do the same thing with a few resistors on each light so it splits the load across the resistors and dont heat up. if they were a little less bright i think it would look better as u cant even distinguish where the lights are or what they look when the light are on.

You can tell what they are but I can't really take a picture of it because they are so bright makes me want to add some LED running lights under the bumper

Its already lost the shine on the hood and roof I guess it's a normal thing to repaint these old trucks and not put a clear coat over it.
