I looked at the link - for LED plug ins - they should not be a problem as most LED's I am aware of run cooler on the front side than a halogen or standard incandescent bulbs. The main issue with heat is to the adhesive. We have tested the adhesive to applied surface temps just over 200 F without issue. Some 'hi output' bulbs run way to hot - producing a lot more incremental heat than incremental light. Get the lens too hot and the adhesive we use will burn. This is not an issue with stock bulbs, or LED's that we are aware of.

We have a lot of Porsche 997 customers that protect the bumper LED bar without issue.

Ok thanks! Do you have any pics of the fog light stealth smoke with the lights on?

Sorry for the delay, sorry no photos available with the lights on. The Stealth Smoke on the DRL's will block most of their output though.

Looks like mine shipped today. Apparently, it was sent signature required. Really? Sigh. Now I have to take an hour off work to go pick up a $40 package.

Yes all orders more than a set of fog light protection kits are sent signature as the CC companies require a signature. Anybody placing an order has the option of sending it to their office. If doing so just make sure the billing address and shipping address are in the correct spot - a lot of people tend to mix it up and have a declined charge attempt.

Any update on the brake light for the vert? I have the front and back lights all in my shopping cart on the website ready to ring out but this will leave my brake light still a regular red color compared to the darkest tint that I want.

We had hoped to take a look at one but have yet to find one. Hopefully we will be able to take a look at adding it in June.

I picked up some Plexus at the local Harley shop, thank you for the tip. I am doing the install for the entire car in sections as my two-year old son allows me to have the time.

I did my side markers a few weeks ago and I did them wet. It took a couple of weeks but now all of the bubbles have dissipated and they look great.

I did the front signal markers and headlights today and have some general comments.

1. The signal markers were a little tedious to get under the grill and floated correctly but overall were fairly easy to install and look fantastic.

2. The headlight pieces were considerably more involved. The pieces were about 1/2" too short in the vertical direction. I heated the material using a hair dryer and stretched it considerably but in the end I still have about 1/4" of the upper part of the headlight not covered. This is not a big deal because you have to literally stoop in front of the car and look upward into the grill to see this.

3. With the headlights off they look AMAZING. There are no noticeable bubbles with the lights off. With the headlights on; however, there is considerable hazing in the light which I assume will go away over time as the adhesive sets and cures and the vinyl shrinks.

Here are some pictures on my install, you can see the hazing that I mentioned in the pictures with the headlights on. Please let me know what you think.
So checking in a year after installation. The side marker, reverse light and tail light vinyl has held up very well and still looks as good as the initial install. I keep the vehicle very clean and clean the vinyl with Plexus for maintenance. The headlight and turn signal vinyl; however, is starting to separate and form small bubbles around the edges. Is this normal, and is there anything that can be done to fix it? Once I get the car cleaned up I'll take some photos and post.
