Won't wrapping the fiber tube help keep the light in?

Can't you wrap the fiber tube with black tape to help keep more light in? Just a thought..

That's probably the easiest way to screw up your fiber or bulb. There is a protective sleeve that comes with it and that is used to protect the fiber and contain as much of the light as possible. I doubt much escapes however, as the fiber channels the light very efficiently.

The black electrical tape will end up melting due to the heat and either melt onto your bulb, or damage the ends of your fiber. I found out the hard way on Day 2 of my install.

that was my car that you posted...hehe...herb installed it on friday evening and took some pics of it. i love the kit so much, but with my silvervision on, the amber doesn't blend in with the angel eyes and my xenon fog lights.

question, is it illegal to put white blinkers on? Do you live in orange county? Lets meet up sometimes...
ken, dunno if ur readin this or not (and u dont have email or pm function available) but white front blinkers are LEGAL in california.

"CALIFORNIA CODES
VEHICLE CODE
SECTION 25950-25952




25950. This section applies to the color of lamps and to any
reflector exhibiting or reflecting perceptible light of 0.05 candela
or more per foot-candle of incident illumination. Unless provided
otherwise, the color of lamps and reflectors upon a vehicle shall be
as follows:
(a) The emitted light from all lamps and the reflected light from
all reflectors, visible from in front of a vehicle, shall be white or
yellow
"

there are no exceptions to the rule, and im sure there is an even more upfront vechicle code stating that "amber and white front turn signals are allowed."
