Newest application to start off your week. Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ready to go to work (or play) without worrying about sandblasting the lights to a hazy mess now that Headlight Armor Light Smoke Headlight Protection Film is applied to the lights. Subtle smoked look and protection from sand blasting!



All weekend orders that were in by Sunday eve have been picked up by USPS and are on their way! Thanks again for all the support!

Saturday Update. All orders in by Friday night are on their way! Weekend orders in by ~5PM CDT Sunday should all be shipping on Monday. Checking some of last weeks tracking numbers USPS has pockets of on time and also areas of 2+ days behind. Talking with some of the folks at USPS the plants are currently slammed with packages. Think Christmas, but in July.

And a new install shot for your Saturday and one of our latest applications. 2019-2020 RAM 2500 / 3500 / Chassis Cab headlight protection film. More effort to apply than most, but does look good when done. Shown in HID Blue (shines white at night).



In it for the long haul, literally / figuratively? Protect your lights + avoid the hazy sea glass look.

Have a great weekend, stay well, and now more than ever - thank you for your support!

o_O 2 years? who has that kind of patience... On a serious note, they are not designed to sit around that long. The master rolls are to be used within a year and the cut applications are best applied when you receive them. Be sure to warm them when they are unrolled - warm and floppy. Sitting in the summer sun will help soften them too. Good luck and get on it ;)

I had hoped to get new lights so I was waiting. Probably not getting lights anytime soon.

Thanks for the tip.

Weekend Update:

Shipping:
All orders in by Noon Friday shipped Friday afternoon! Orders in by 5PM this Sunday should all ship out on Monday. Checking the tracking status of all orders from last weekend (that shipped out Monday) all have been delivered, As you should have heard by now, the new Postmaster General of the USA ordered a slow down in the mail in early July. We are seeing delays. For small packages - like most of the ones Headlight Armor sends - we are seeing about a 2 day delay. Some are delayed a week or more. It seems like different centers are effected differently and the larger the package the longer the delay. Thankfully the delays to most of the Headlight Armor orders have been minor in comparison to other larger packages.

Install Tips:
Over the past couple of weeks we have had a few customers email about getting / how to remove bubbles from their install. Yes most cosmetic issues like hazy areas and water bubbles will dissipate over time. The real key is not to get / leave them during the install. Most bubbles are a result of one of or a combination of three things. Insufficient water on the lens / adhesive side of the material, insufficient pressure on the squeegee / not overlapping your strokes, and getting the material too hot during application If during the install you notice you have left a bubble you can carefully lift the material, re-wet and re-squeegee.

Hope those help, enjoy your weekend, and thank you for your support!
