the Bat Overlay Questions?
hey
i was looking at the bats overlays and i must say i was really impressed, it looks awsome, im interested in gettin either the h5 or h7 (smoked) for my headlights & the v14 smoked for my tailights but i was just wondering
1) how these things work because if there a overlay wouldnt they kinda have crease's amd lil bend marks where the light curves etc? or do they go on nice and smooth,
2) and how do you apply them on, also im thinkin of gettin the black stripe for my Hood aswell.
3)and lets say i ever wanna take these off would they ruin my paint or leave a gunk or sticky stuff on my paint
thanks for ur time

1. i kinda rush mine i didnt really take my time so for the tails there are creases in the corner
2. you can use soap/water solution so you can move it around but i find it harder coz it wont dry quickly enuff so it was hrder to stcick on

btw theres a lot of trimming required to get it perfectly
you can check my profile for pics i love mine you cant really tell its vinyl until ur about 2 feet from the car thumbsup

1. their obviously made of vinyl..which can stretch so bends in the headlight shouldnt be a problem

2. it's peel & stick basically

3. it won't ruin or chip your paint but it will leave gunk. get a nice cleaning solution and feel free to wipe away...its a little work but the end result looks the same as before you put them on. thumbsup
