I'm glad I don't live in a state with inspections. Cause they would hate my four Hella Power Beam 1000's facing forward on the Dodge and the two Anzo 4 inch LED's facing the rear. Along with all of my other LED lighting...

I've seen techs leave the shop in handcuffs, I never played around with the rules. Trooper Parker was a nice guy, but not someone I would ever cross. working at a Benz dealer I didn't have to deal with too much BS though.

It's what keeps 90% of the crap that shows up in the "fail" and "scary steering" threads off our roads.

I'm guess they don't react well to UV since it seems like typical UV plastic damage. The covers for my old 90 Pro XT duals have ardly been on so they look pretty much new when I can find them. The ones for my old 4" pencil beams were always on the lamps for the most part and each one cracked down the middle.

I believe Hello Kitty tape would work well in this headlight covering application, if I only had an example to test my theory.
