I ordered a set from tricktape and they look pretty good! Only thing is they sent me 3 sheets and only used 1. They work great and do not affect light output at all. The ones i have are BLACK. Kind of tough to get since they are always on back order. If you would like one let me know and i will bring it up to Strats tomorrow night. Is anyone going tomorrow? I forgot to add i will NOT charge anyone for it either! :nono Unless that person isnt a member of CLSB. :D Let me know.

Labdog,

Not so fast... (sorry Ken). FYI - I had vinyl headlight covers on for a while. Depending on how much riding you do at night and where you ride you might want to hold on to at least one of the extras. At direct hit with a fair-sized bug at speed can definitely tear up a cover. After a while you might want to replace it, it won't last forever.

Just my .02 - but of course you can't make enimies by giving away free stuff...

Thanks for the advice. The offer still stands for a sheet because i said i would give it to ya. I was surprised at the size of the sheet because i did my headlight (93 Kats' pretty big) and side turn markers as well and still only used 1 sheet with a mistake and lots extra. 1 sheet is more than enough. Once again thanks for the advice and thats what keeps this one of the best sites!
:thumbsup See ya at Strats...............

Well i will keep one sheet because like you said.......but i will give you the other sheet as well. If i go through 2 full sheets then somethings wrong and anyway after time i would end up losing or destroying em anyway! :D Did you apply the vinyl as directed? I used the hair dryer to make it flexible and then after it was on good i used the heat gun and it actually shrinkwrapped real tight. Who knows:confused They look good for now :)

ahh no these didnt come with directions...i just cut the bulk size out...pulled the back off...and pressed it on..and worked the edges and trimed the extra off the sides...there was a few places where no matter what it crimpled on the underside..so i made little slices into the tap and worked it down smooth

Yeah i had the same so i peeled it off, went to their site, downloaded their instructions. They said if you dont use heat they could tear/rip. After i used the heat you could feel a major difference in adhesion. Just my .02 for anyone...;)

Well Odysseys is running the ones I sell and it takes a lot more then a bug to tear it.. hell ask him :)

I am selling a higher quility viynl then what tricktape is selling. Longer lasting and a very good turn out.

Just to keep everyone posted :)

I bought some and put them on my car. I did lose a little visibility, but nothing like putting blackouts on! I don;t remember where I ordered them from, but it was enough to do two headlights on my sunfire, and I think there's enough leftover to to both front turns and the sidemarkers. Alot more than I though tere was going to be!

Funny, I had mine since TrickTape started selling them and they havent ripped or tore due to bug impacts. Hell I hit a sparrow and it didnt even phase it.:D:D
