Re: Found out why our tinted tail lights warp.

I think its a combination of the tint/paint holding the heat inside the lense, the lense itself and water/condensation on the outside of the lense. Water/condensation hits the lamps when they are hot and the lense cools superfast and causes warping.

For Sure, i have a spare set lying around somewhere in the garage, need some time, i will snap a picture for ya bro!

Its a small hole, with some mesh cloth wrapped over it , i guess for dust not to enter the housing.

I hope my jeep has those white sticker hole covers too ! If yes, i will puncture them, doing small holes with a needle ! so that it dessipated heat, and not allowing dust to come in

Re: Found out why our tinted tail lights warp.

I've had my tinted tails for almost a year now and I have zero warping going on. LED tails though, and they are in a garage at my house and in a parking garage at work so their exposure to direct sunlight is pretty limited.

If you haven't heard any complaints, they're probably not out there. JMO

Re: Found out why our tinted tail lights warp.

I used VHT Nightshades and they haven't warped at all. Maybe just luck?
