Thanks!! Probably about an hour. Definitely need some velcro to anchor the power supply so it doesnt get in the way of the active lamp. I purchased some "industrial strength" velcro at Lowes or Home Depot. After you unlock the two clips holding the cover in place the cover will swing open but still be held on by two alignment tabs at the bottom. Just need to easily work the cover up and out of the bottom tabs to remove.

I'm in Jax and its the Revozport front lip with adjustable splitter - but I don't have the adjustable splitter installed yet - I will be taking it back off before visiting the dealer for the 1200 mi service. I'm afraid they would forget about the front lip and damage it!

I have had these light installed too, however I have noticed that when I start my car my lights are flickering for about 10 seconds and then go off.
Is this normal?
When the lights are turned on they are fine and work perfectly.
Also I have recently started to notice that they not only seem to flicker upon start up but they also flicker on and off when the car is turned on but the lights are turned off.

Any help would be appreciated.

Looks great! I just set mine at the bottom of the covers near the tabs. So far no problems but I need to get some velcro just to be safe.

That is normal the car is doing a self check of the exterior bulbs by sending pulses of power to them. it is checking for shorts or blown bulbs. Any LED Angel Eyes will do this
