Failed Inspection -- Need Lens Caps for PIAA Lights

So I failed state safety inspection today. I need lens caps for my PIAA lights then I'll pass. Looks like PIAA just sells the mesh brush guards. Anyone know of a solid lens cover that will fit my PIAAs? Thanks.

Why not just remove them, get it inspected and then reinstall them?

When I used to live in Virginia, I used some KC light covers over my PIAA fog lights during inspections, that way they are classed as off-roading lights only.
Some states require the fog lights be wired into your head lights, so that they go off when you switch to hi beam.
I had a place put plastic bags over them for me, that way they could count them as not in use. I tried that at another place and they required me to use proper fog light covers.
I had two sets of PIAA fog lights at the time & had to get two different sets of covers, which worked fine for inspection times.

you didn't pass inspection because you didn't have a cover on your lights? WTF? I thought only CA was run by Nazis. Thank God we don't have moronic inspections here.

Paper bags and rubber bands.....

That really is a joke. Out in CA it's a $300 ticket if they are not covered.

Nanny State Socialism in all of its mediocrity!

There are just as many POS cars are on the road in states like VA as any remaining free State like Arizona... In fact it may be worse. Every time I drive in the Northeast part of the US I always end up behind something like an 83 Buick that belches toxic smog and has no brake lights or shock absorbers.

How socialist work: We must pass this law for the safety of the people, think of the children.

Then the Advocates come along and say... you can't take away the rights of "Poor Working Families", so they are given waivers and exceptions for almost everything or even your hard earned $$$ to repair their POS car and they pocket it, and thus 99% of the dangerous POS cars are still on the road.

So what you have is just another tax and a bunch of morons with nothing better to do than try and control you because you installed some aftermarket driving lights on a brand new vehicle that so you can see better at night.

in va i failed mine because of the same thing. I just covered mine with plastic sheeting being held on by the rock guards. i took it to the same place since they gave me a rejection sticker and it passed with the plastic on. all they want is for them to be covered or lower than the headlights.

These inspection horror stories I have read on here really make me thankful for Ohio, almost makes up for 90% of my state being flat and boring.

Here in Jersey I had the same thing happen to me a couple of years ago when I still had my TJ. They failed me and I was able to go outside, removed them, and drive right back in for a reinspection.
