Headlight Eyelid Question

I am thinking about getting a set of these eyelids for my car. I was just wondering if anyone has used them? do you apply them on dry or use soap/water like other vinyl? thanks

Paint it on. It'd be cheaper.

I don't know about paint, they get pretty hot, it could work, but some dark tint (same used for smoke style lights) can be used.

I want to do something so i can remove it without having to replace headlights. I am wanting to get the white to match my car.

Vinyl would be easiest. They don't look that good on our cars though imo.

^^This... not a fan but, it's your car. Just an idea, I wonder how plasti dip would work if you taped off the rest of the area?? pretty sure you can get white plastidip

the only negative thing would be the plasitdip would have a matte finish unless they make gloss white plastidip now
