Doesn't seem like you are too worried about scratching that lense? I hope that is a demo light and doesn't belong to someone. I can't believe it didn't get scratched.

It seem the headlights you are using are for the RS headlights, is it the same for the 2ss headkights?

Hmmm, just watched it back and the only surface that the lens ever touches is a new, clean, soft microfiber towel. How exactly would the lens be scratched?

i think they were talking about the screwdriver part but i guess he could have been a little more gentler with it.

We could have been more gentler and pretended that you can easily get the lens off of the light by lightly coaxing it off of the housing. In reality you need to be a bit forceful and as you can see from the video the headlight housing can stand up to the force that the installer is using.

Has anyone had issues of moisture getting in the headlight after this kind of install? I've had aftermarket product in the past and they always got beads of water on the inside.. Do you guys have any type of wrranty/guarantee?

No reported issue or any Camaro headlights ever fogging up.

Yes, we offer a warranty on the headlight seal if we do the installation.

The halos can be installed in the non RS headlight right? Is there any modification to the light housing needed? Since there isnt a groove that the halo goes into like for the RS version.

I am really glad you posted that video for that reason. One guy's "forceful" is another guy's "gently". After watching the video, this modification is on my short list, but it will depend on your answer to the question below, posted on 4/9/10. Thanks!

Yes, you can install in a non-RS. Most installations we do are non-RS Camaros.

You just line up the ring in the housing and epoxy in place:
