On June 30, 2012, I decided to put on the Headlight Tinting to our Y1. It was pretty easy to do, since I put on tinting in our living room windows the past couple of weekends, I decided it was time to put these on.
The Nor-Cal HHR Club was founded in December 2005 when Tricia and I purchased our 2006 Majestic Amythest Metallic 1LT from American Chevrolet in Modesto, California in September 2005. I started to search the internet for fan sights (or anythig to be honest) that gave me a place to go for more information on our new buy. I found two such places... one of them doesn't exist anymore, and the other is www.ChevyHHR.net! After looking around for awhile, I registered the domain name www.ModestoHHRClub.com (I have since let this domain name expire), and then the hard job of searching for members began... and believe me, it was a hard task to convince people to spend $25.00/year at the time. This has since been dropped.. We woed them with freebies we got from Meguiar's and just as they started to ask questions about the club, I handed them a membership application.... and so it goes.
First, I had to clean the headlight covers with Windex, dry them, and then spray a fine mist of water on the covers before peeling the film off and positioning them on the head lights.
Next was the hard part... trying to force the flat film to conform to the curve of the headlight cover... this took awhile on the first one. Then when I figured it out, the second one was a breeze.
I left the car in the sun so the tinting could dry (about 4 hours according to the directions), and then gave then a cure overnight. In the morning, I wiped them down.
Next to be tinted... the tail lights and side markers.... coming soon!
