Got the PM. I'll try and get some pics up today. Like I said, love the material but the covers could be larger to fit the entire light. Mine do not cover the entire marker light like the pic above.

The light tint rears are pure sexy. Do the headlights have a light tint as well?

Pics

I took the tailights out to ensure proper placement and a good seal.







You can see it's too small on both the top and bottom


Markers



They aren't misplaced. They simply are too small to cover the lens

Yes we have kits for the headlights too. They are grouped on the site with the rest of the 2010 Camaro lighting protection kits here

Keep in mind with the headlights recessed all kits will look somewhat darker than if they were installed on a different vehicle that had a large exposed headlight with a full chrome reflector.

The smoked taillight kit is designed to be installed with both the lights and the trim bezels in place. Removing them will make alignment very challenging if possible at all.

As for the marker they will stretch a bit during the install. It is likely that if they have not been set for too many days that they can be partially lifted, warmed, stretched just that tiny bid and re-applied. Though only designed to be applied once one customer with a GTO said he removed the taillight kit when it came time for inspection and then reapplied them. Have not tried that, but it might be worth a shot.

I used the bezels for alignment with the lights off the car. Like I said it's not an alignment problem, it's a size issue. There are multiple posts with the same issue.

I'm just trying to help you improve your product. I like them. I'm going to keep them. I will probably buy the fronts. I just think if they were a slightly larger size they would be perfect.

To reiterate, they are not designed to be installed off the car. That would make it way too time consuming and much more challenging that needed. With everything off the car - even using the bezels for alignment - alignment would be a challenge. I suppose there is more than one way to do things, but ours were designed with a specific application process in mind.

He is talking about the inset signals. The four recessed lenses - two next to each light. We will take another look at them. Keep in mind he did state that you can't tell once they are installed.

No worries thanks for the feedback. We do strive for the best fitting kits available while making them DIY install friendly. In the end there are a wide number of design factors to take into consideration.

If you wanted to install this kit on your car professionally, where would you go to take it and get it installed?

I would imagine an auto store like an audio or tint shop or a custom shop. Even some wheel shops have a tint man that can lay it down for you.

Quick question? I've read the instructions and seem comfortable with the headlight/foglight/taillight install. Just wondering about the reflectors, is it good to use a little water and a blow dryer like the other products? And are the letters that are on the lens an issue when laying it down?

Post HeadlightArmor Smoked Lighting Protection Installation

None our HeadlightArmor lighting protection kits are designed to require a 'professional' to install. They were designed with a consumer DIY in stall in mind. That said you may find some tint shops, clear bra installers, or customizers willing to do the install for you. It all depends on the particular shop. While we don't have any Camaro specific DIY tutorials on the site we do have a variety of lighting protection install guides here to give an idea as to what is involved. That said the headlights, taillights, and reflectors on the new Camaro are relatively flat as should not pose much of a significant challenge to install.

The side markers are usually done dry, though as they are flat I imagine you could use a light mist of water on them. You can also peel back the first third of the material from the backing paper to align one end as opposed to completely removing them from the backing paper. Similar to what is shown in the tutorial for the smoked Scion tC trunk mounted TBL here The material and adhesive is re-positionable and pretty forgiving. It isn't a one shot deal.

As for the letters on the reflectors, the material will settle out conforming around them, the lettering will still be readable.

Not much of a change in output and tones down the chrome.

Post Site updates and clarifications from HeadlightArmor

Been a busy week but wanted to add some updates and clarifications. From our FAQ.

Do I need to buy two items to cover both headlights?
All of our lighting kits are sold as matching sets. I.e. A set of headlight covers will cover both headlights.

Can I get a Headlight and Fog Light Protection Combo package in different materials? I.e. Clear Headlights and GT Yellow Fogs?
All of our combo packages are only available as matched sets (i.e. all must be the same material). There can be some added efficiency in production on multiple pieces, and we pass the savings along to you in our packages! If you would like to mix and match materials you would need to order each set individually.

Should I / Do I have to remove my lights from the vehicle or remove the bumper cover to install the kits?
No. While it might be possible to install our kits with the lights off the vehicle it will make the application at least twice as hard and it will make alignment difficult as all of our kits are designed to be applied with the lights on the vehicle, and in the case of the headlights, with the hood closed. Removing the bumper cover is also not necessary to install our fog light protection kits or our smoked taillight kits. Again all items are designed for application with the bumper covers in place. No need to disassemble your new vehicle. See our DIY install pages here

For the three that ordered a combo package overnight and requested a mixed package, your order will be processed as requested, as had not clarified this on the thread, only on the site. And for the one with clear headlights, the free towels will be added to your order too as part of our Clear Headlight Protection kit promotion.

Until the end of the month we are continuing to offer camaro5 members free shipping on orders over $30, by clicking here or entering camaro5 in the coupon box when you check out.

Over the summer our web designer has been working on some new product image handling on the site that will be rolled out on an ad hoc basis as time allows. Some of the new Camaro product photo handling has been updated. The following items have additional large (900 x 675 pixel) product images. Click the thumbnails under the main photo to expand within the window. (additional images will be added over time)
