Wow, i didnt know you sold those door rest overlays either, might have to check 'em out. They look a little blue, can you also order them in other colors?

can i just state something....

i dont mean to bash, but i bought a set of the coupe long eyelids (2nd pair). they look very nice. but the vinyl is waayyy to flimsy, i am on my 2nd set now. ive had them professionally installed twice, and they still have issues with them because they are so thin and flimsy. mosty with air bubbles.

2nd. they let light through between the top of the light/overlay and the fender/hood. they were positioed exactally how theyre supposed to but they let the light through, may i suggest making the top of the eyelid confourm to the top of the headlights so light wont pass through?

-could be the installation issue.
I had 2 set for myself and never had any issue with bubbles.
took really long time to install it.

-do you have single layer or double?
if you have single, try double.

They are designed to tuck in over the headlight, did your installer do that? Air bubbles are cuased by not getting all the moisture out underneath.

heres mine with 3/10 tint from bluebat...
They are a shade lighter then i wanted, but reasonably perfect. they take away from the bright red and dull it out a bit. wasnt hard to do either. the heat gun go the edges wrapped around the corner of the lights... overall i like it.
no problems thus far with police.
sorry no night pics as of yet.

I have clear vinyl. You're actually the first person to inquire about it for the lip. Shoot me an email ;).
