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?
