got my H5's installed today...

the overlays look awesome.. thumbsup

but there was a part that i had a mega hard time with.. i might end up buying another set of these overlays.. frown

the part where the arrow is pointed too.. was the HARDEST part by far to install... got damn! just because the overlays is flat, and the part where the arrow is pointed is round!! man i end up having creases like a mofo!! ah well, you cant notice them until ur really close.. but anyway i will prolly end up ordering another set, because they got F'd up. o well!

Those look great. I am definetely considering putting them on the car. However, does it effect the headlights at night?

My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

i usually dont like these overlay headlight stuffs and specially the black/dark ones, but i have to say, they dont look bad at all. you need a new set of wheels though, then itll look way nicer.

Lookin' good! thumbsup

And as for the creases, did you use a soap/water solution so that you could move them into position? That works wonders. Also, try applying from one side to the other while working out the bubbles, instead of just plopping it down. Hope that helps cool

Use a hairblower to warm up the kit and a soft cloth to nicely even it out on your headlight.

nice thumbsup thumbsup
btw did the part you had trouble with came in one piece coz mine came pre cut in half and it was easier to install a couple of people i know who bought the same, that piece was one whole piece and they tried installing it that way and had the same problem as you, maybe next time you can try cutting it in half(see pic)

Thats the ticket, and also use a hair dryer and a soft rag to help push out the water. Works every time for me, and I have a few of Bats kits as well as DIY wrap of most of my dash.

Does look very nice man, great work! I think it would also look really nice to make your front side lights clear instead of the yellow, should look really nice along with those and the red paint.
