Looks great, any problems with it peeling? I'm thinking about doing my rims.

No problem with peeling. I will say to spray the back edges before spraying the front to eliminate edges and hopefully eliminate peeling. I will be doing my chrome clad rims as well and will make sure to spray the back side as well.

UPDATE:
I got back home from being out of town for 17days to find this:



Yes moisture in the headlights but, only in the passenger side. No problems with the driver side. I have tried to contact SPEC-D about this problem and have not received any reply (Contacted 1/2 and 1/13/13 via email).

Apparently they have a video that i found saying to seal your "sealed" housings.


Yes i have tried to re-seal my "sealed" housings on 1/11/13 and now on 1/13/13 i have moisture in my passenger side housing. Also to note my passenger side lens looks to have micro cracks appearing.

Just a heads up for anyone thinking about getting these.

So far not impressed with SPEC-D TUNING "Customer Service"

I had the same problem with moisture in my passenger side. This might sound strange, but I found a way to solve the problem (at least on my truck). I removed the large round rubber cap that goes over the low beam bulb in the rear of the housing. I don't know how, because that seems like the opposite of a solution, but it solved my moisture issues.

Also, I have the hairline cracks appearing too. Guess you get what you pay for. But they look amazing, and I'm just about the only one that notices them. I guess I can live with it.

I actually sent emails to the person that sold me the headlights on amazon. He contacted Spec-D and got me replacement housings. Once I got those I full sealed the seam to ensure No moisture could get in and put teflon tape around the orings for the large caps. So far after 2 months they still look great and haven't seen any hairline cracks.

Very cool. I think I'll keep mine for a while, cracks and all. I'm holding out for some from *************, so these will have to work until then! Good looking truck by the way. I'm going to start on my first plasti-dip experience tomorrow. Hoping I don't go too crazy with the stuff!

Thanks. Plasti dip is very easy to work with and yes you will be looking for more stuff to spray once you start. The key is to make sure the piece you are spraying is Very clean. Use denatured alcohol and a microfiber.
