I just recieved my light covers from stickercity.com. They are made of the 3M protectant but for your heads and tails. I bought xenon blue for the front and smoked black for the back. Just wanted to see if anyone could help with the install because if I do it myself im afraid ill get bubbles since ive never done this before. Thanks.

The kit also came with xenon blue covers for the fogs and side markers and i have the smoked black for the back side markers but I have a C-west so I dont need them, if anyone wants them they are yours.

I used to own a Vinyl Graphics shop and here is my advice.
1.Make sure your car is at room temperature or warmer on the surface that you are going to apply the vinyl to. (This way the vinyl will stretch etc..)
2.Get a spray bottle with either water or or a mixture of water and glass cleaner.
3.Soak the sh*t out of the area you are going to apply the vinyl to. (Make sure you clean the area before you apply the vinyl.)
4.Apply the vinyl to the area you want. Since it is wet you can slide it around so it fits exactly.
5.Use a credit car or squegee to smooth out the bubbles. Make sure you spray the outside of the vinyl to minimize scratching of the vinyl while your smoothing it out.
6.Once you have all the bubbles out either sit your car in the sun to let the moisture evaporate or hit it with a heat gun.

If there is still little bubbles get a safety pin and pop the bubbles then smooth it out.. Then your good to go!... Good luck!

Seriously? I wonder how they would look on my car. I guess I'll take them then.

i could help you out dj. i would suggest not using the windex though, just pure h2o...windex has a tendency to take some of the adhesive off. i dont think i have the rubber squeegies though, see if you can dig some up. and did they come pre-cut, or do you cut them yourself? if you cut them, dont try and pre-cut them and then adhere them, adhere them then trim them so its perfect
