Default 77-79? Firebird nose mod

Anyone ever use flat plexi-glass to cover the entire headlight cavity on both sides to "slicken" the look of the nose on those model years?? I thought I had seen one somewhere, maybe only in my mind I have a silver 81 with a blue factory interior I was thinking of making those covers for and tinting slightly with a blue clear to match the interior for a slightly custom look. (I have 3 good noses 77-79 and none for 81)Is there a product out there already made somewhere? I know some states its illegal to cover the headlights but that must be getting harder to enforce since so many new cars come with plexi covered lamps.

I did something very similar years ago, to a 77 Camaro I had.. I just used clear lexan, and made brackets to attach it.
I was always told that running blue, or red, lights on the front of your car was illegal, unless you were in Law enforcement..
With the new blue headlamp bulbs now, I don't really know what the status of that would be
