Re: 2008-2010 Turn Signal Covers.

Sorry I did not get back to you vman with some photos... ran late at work now I'm down in NJ for the weekend (Army Reserve) i'll get the Jeep fired up Monday and shoot some photos.

The CF side marker covers I got from Chad fit flush with the fenders, they are very thin, almost like paper it seems so no bulge or anything. I used to have the Stillen covers and they stuck out pretty far and did not sit right on the headlight itself - so switching over to Black Ops was awesome, they look like an OEM part - only a little more sexy

Re: 2008-2010 Turn Signal Covers.

update! mine bleed light too, I took some photos of it but it's an easy fix in the end. I have the CF covers and the side marker bleeds light through the covers - told you they were super thin so I pulled the side marker bulb and now I just bleed the OEM projector light from the top corner of the headlight (where the fender comes down and sort of molds to the headlight) even if the black ops covers wrapped further in at the top it would not solve the issue, they would have to wrap in and then wrap up. so to fix that bleed I'll pull the headlights and use some black electric tape, prob a 10 minute job since I don't have my front bumper on yet so pulling the headlights is still super easy. Thanks VMan for the tip, I would have never noticed until I was out at night with my lights on, not sure if it would even bother me but I'll cover it up now just for the hell of it

Re: 2008-2010 Turn Signal Covers.

That's right Mike I forgot you got the CF ones yes they are gonna bleed like mad through the CF fiberglass less seeing they are getting painted. As far as the bleed through at night I don't think even with the new 05-07 ones wrapped even more than the 08-10's we will end up see some light escaping from the edges really no way around it. I think one of the best cures is the electrical tape around the outside of the housing.

no prob bud. yea i ended up temporarily shimmying fender over a bit so i could add electric tape around light in order to "meet" the signal cover

x2, the escaping light is unavoidable, and when looking at side of jeeps, the small "crack" of light you see between fender and cover, or bottom of cover and bumper, isn't really that big of a deal

the electric tape solved the "line of light" that was escaping and being projected perpendicular to the front of my jeep
