Hi, just ordered (yesterday) covers for everything! How easily do they go on? Is it like tint applications? I assume they are all custom fitted for the car. Was a little confused by all the different writeups on installing...

Thanks

I installed the sidemarker covers and foglight/drl covers...looks most excellent! Very happy with the product and very easy to install...I installed using wet technique just to be safe. The foglight/drl were a little hazy as you said they would be, just waiting for the vinyl to dry and adhere better to clear up as you described. Your instructions were excellent as well. Good job!! Pics as soon as we have good weather again.

We have a variety of DIY tutorials on the site here to give an idea on how they are applied. The applications for the Camaro are pretty straight forward as the headlights and taillights are fairly small and relatively flat. The fogs have a dome to them but lay down nicely. fastdoc, thanks for the compliments! Post pics when you get a chance, we love seeing the final product.

Post Headlight Armor Follow-up Information

Just wanted to post a few more points of clarification given a few recent email inquiries.

All of our items are sold in matched sets. You only need one 'item' per vehicle. If you order one GT Yellow fog light protection kit, you will receive two pieces, one for each side.

Additionally, we include a squeegee with each order of items requiring a squeegee for application - the same one we use in our application tutorials here.

Let us know if you have any questions about the products or their application.

Hi, I installed ALL the protection kits yesterday (rear taillights, DRLs, headlights and front marker lights). I also installed a light tint on all the side marker lights - very easy as they're mainly flat.

My only comment is that I feel the headlights and the 2 marker lights next to them covers could be bigger. You won't be able to tell from this lousy attached shot, but there are spaces on all of those 6 lights.

Rears installed plus my own tint on the backup lights:

I didn't want them too dark, but I like how they came...

Thanks, looks great. I'll let the designers know about your thoughts. I know the small size and the heavily recessed nature of the markers is a design constraint. Somebody with big hands still needs to be able to put them on after all. Looks great and Will help protect the lights too!

On Friday, October 2 2009 will be conducting a server upgrade. This upgrade will occur at 8:00 PM Pacific Time and will last approximately six hours.. During this upgrade, our store will be inaccessible at times.

On Saturday, October 3, 2009, our credit card payment gateway - authorize.net - will be implementing planned payment gateway updates. Beginning at 10:30 PM Pacific Time, there will be up to a 15 minute period of time in which our credit card processing functionality will be inaccessible for transaction processing. Google Checkout will be available as always though.

We apologize for any inconvenience these two upgrades may cause and thank you for your patience.

Post HeadlightArmor site status update

Site upgrades went off without a hitch and authorize.net's outage was shorter than planned. All is a go. We have had a variety of Camaro5 users place orders and miss the following link. If your order met the free shipping criteria but missed the link, a refund was processed. All weekend orders should be shipping out today.

To anyone thinking of getting these and are worried about self install...dont worry at all the material is so thick you would really have to mess up to not be able to fix it...i just installed the headlights foglights and front turn signals and it was real easy as long as you follow directions...now for you guys at headlight armor...I agree with that other post about the front turn signals are too small they could have been 1/8 or even 3/16 larger all the way around at first i was not going to put them on but i did and you cant tell they are on the small side...all that said i love them the fogs and headlights are perfect size..one other thing i noticed on your directions you say to do the fogs dry well that just didnt work had to use water just need to remember to turn the fogs off for the first week so as not to boil the leftover water that you cant get out but you just cant get it centered just right unless you use water. I would highly recomend this product i had the GTS covers and they just looked like shit so i tried this product and i love it so if your on the fence just jump in and try it you will like it

Agreed. Great material. Poor fit on the rear and sides.

Thanks! Glad to hear it. Yes the material and adhesive is very forgiving, great for the DIY'er.

Small fogs are usually best done dry while larger ones done with some water. The Camaro fogs are closer to small fogs than large ones, but can be done either way. Just a light mist of water would likely do the trick.
