carbon fiber headlight guard


Explanation:
After some research it would seem this makes the most sense. More context would be helpful however. Anyway, the Treccani Lessico gives grafitare- grafitazione- spruzzare sotto pressione oli addizionati con grafite su alcuni elementi strutturale di macchine (in particolare autovetture) a scopo di lubrificare e di protezione contro la corrosione. Cupolino refers to their shape. Various models are offered. Sometimes they are referred to as headlight guards or protectors, stone guards, grill guards. I imagine they are usually mounted on SUV's and jeeps.

pad printed dome light


Explanation:
As far as I can see the expression "cupolino" refers to the dome-shaped light that can be found in various situations on a car but also, for instance, on a bicycle.
"tampografia" is a technique known as "pad printing" and it is used to mark parts that are not flat (and in fact a dome light wouldn't be)

pad printed front fairing


Explanation:
Hi Ajit
I reckon your text may refer to motorcycles rather than cars. In my experience in this area cupolino was always translated as front fairing (see link).
Cheers
