Yep, got it done. Learnt that it works better in a warmer environment than yesterday morning, using a hair dryer helped, the vinyl was more compliant and willing to stick



Looks bloody brilliant.

Thanks, I like how it gives the front a little more definition, but it's good to know they're easily removable! Nice find Monkey, need to see your car when you've done it, got high hopes for how it will look on yours Thumb

Hey phil. No, havent done mine yet. Been focussed on working on the bus and the weather has been crap, so have left alone. Embarassed

Will do soon though and post pics. WILDEJ also has a set, but not sure if he's done his yet either.

Finally got round to fitting to the headlight surrounds this afternoon.
Bit fiddly getting them on straight and getting all the air bubbles out and a hairdryer helped on a low heat.

Cant work out if I like them or not as yet though. Confused

Before



After

Brilliant! They go so well with the stone guards and wheels. Let them grow on you (or not) for a week Thumb

Not sure myself on the headlight trims but like the stone guards on the white!

Where are they from?

I'll give them a few days see if they grow on me.

Stone guards are from here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261199841695

Need to get hard backs of seats done next.

Morning! Any sets left ? Looks good on a silver, so tempted to have a set!

Are they easy to fit ? Presume easy to remove if anyone wanted to put back to standard ?

I do have a few sets left, but the plan was to sell them on eBay at £65 inc postage (basically to cover the cost of my own set).

The extra tenner seems to have put most people who have enquired about them off in the past week or so - times are hard in the porsche owners family I guess.

Anyway, pm me if you want a set at £65.

Thanks

Matt

I wouldn't say it was easy, mainly because it's going to be the first time you do it, but my tips are to follow the intructions and clean the lights properly with alcohol and then when applying use plenty of water spray (with a dash of baby shampoo in it), use a hair dryer to keep things warm and flexible and most of all be patient as you're finishing it off.

I'm sure they would come off and leave no trace if you wanted to reverse it.

Thanks Matt. Am heading to the US for work this week, so just debating whether to get from you or buy direct.

Install seems a faff that I am likely to get wrong! Laughing

Their video makes it look so easy!!

I guess faff is a fair point but it isn't a one-shot thing, you can keep working with them to get the position right and the bubbles out for as long as you keep it moist. You can remove and start again too, it's only when you're happy and you dry them off and leave them that they cure onto the lights.
