I like the flushness with the body of the cover. Are the LED's flush or do they protrude from the covers?

Just a few questions;
What is the material used (you should be up front about this, as any manufacturer/seller would be)?

Since you're using heat to form these, what's going to happen when the fog lights are used (purposely or inadvertently) and heat builds up?
What about being left parked in the sun for extended periods?
Warping?

You haven't had them done long enough for any serious testing, so can you provide guarantees?

Those switchback LED strips use cheap LEDs that burn out prematurely (I know from experience)...will the strips be easily changeable when that happens, and for the $300 price tag, will you provide the replacements if/when they fail within a certain period?
If so, what would that period be?

The material looks thin and probably flimsy. How do you attach them and at what speeds will they be safe? Good for track use (120mph+)?

If they're attached well, how do you change the LED strip?


Your ad doesn't provide much detail.

I definitely like the painted look, but something about the led's is throwing me off.

Those look pretty cool, but I think what PW is getting at is that a $300 part should be thoroghly tested before you start selling it. He points out some very valid issues, especially about the heat and the speed they could fly off. I think PW is trying to be helpful in a round about way. Good luck though.
