I got one quote from a place here in town and they want 300 bucks to do the front and back . (their mats) So this is looking like something i am going to do . If i screw up a piece or two is there a way to just order what i mess up?

thanks!
While a few people have had some issues, the material is very forgiving and frankly the lights on the Camaro are some of the easier applications we have available. Given the small size of the taillights and the fact they are recessed if you have huge hands, the install is a little more work. As for discounted single side replacements, we do have them available as needed, though the actual need is very rare.

Just placed an order for pretty much everything ... Smoke Headlight, Tail Light, reverse lights, side markers, signal lights, and fog lights... cant wait to get them!

I believe I ordered a set of tail light covers for an 2007 IS250 several years back... was very happy with them too... hope to be with these as well (they look to install a whole lot easier that those Lexus tail lights were)

Thanks, your order should go out Monday. All the kits for the Camaro are pretty straight forward to apply! A lot easier than some of what we have available for other vehicles.

I know you guys say not to use aftermarket lighting with the headlight armor because it can melt it. If I did the foglight blackouts with these fog lights: http://www.automotivelightstore.com/P13W.aspx would that cause any problems?

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.
