the top tab can fold over the headlight but there's literally like NO room on the bottom tab to fold over unless you take off the bumper, what did you guys with these do??

Hold the tabs during install so you don't get prints on the part that goes over the light, then after it's all on nice, cut the tabs off...?

Thanks guys! I just ended up cutting them off before installing cause I didn't want the razor blade to make contact with my headlight. Install went perfect!

The instructions say once dry to peel off protective layer but I can't seem to find it?
