Legal to do if you can rig up a headlight/brake light setup?

It's plastic. Why do you think one type of plastic would be legal and one would be illegal. Same as color paint, you can do whatever.

Yeah but is it cool beans to rig up a bright flashlight to the front? Guess I could have articulated a bit better. What is considered "legal" in terms of headlight setup? I assume it's gotta be a little better than some bright flashlights duct taped to the front.

It's legal, as long as the lights are bright enough. I don't think most flashlights cut it. I also believe it must not be so bright that it is distracting to others.
