Angry RVinyl headlight tint disaster.....BEWARE!!! :(

You guys remember the headlight tint I had on my oem HID's for like 3 days? Well...I pulled that tint off and then pulled the lamps and put new lamps on. I figured I would clean them up and sell them. Well...they sold to a very LUCKY member here at JG. So I went to detail them Monday to ship. The drivers side details up and looks new....the passenger though...I cant get the glue residue off...or so I thought. I used a whole bottle of Goo Gone....
then I got to looking closer at the lense.......
The DAMN top layer of plastic on the lense was pulled off with the vinyl!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My jaw dropped and I was flabbergasted! So.....I have a ruined $6-700 08-10 HID passenger headlamp now! Pics to come tonight when I get home. Just wanted everyone to be aware in case you wanted to follow what I did with he RVinyl....

Re: RVinyl headlight tint disaster.....BEWARE!!! :(

OH Farwk! Damn Scott sorry to hear that dude...does Rvinyl have a warranty for a defect? Or disclaimers all over the place that remove them from any and all liability?

Re: RVinyl headlight tint disaster.....BEWARE!!! :(

Or maybe if you cook it open and swap just the clear cover lense with a non HID 08+ headlamp? Would that work???
