How do I get some more? I've covered with 3M Super 88 electrical tape for now.
3M makes a 8$ roll of double sided tape that I used to put my jammer heads on and let me tell you that it is literally indestructible. Ice, snow, sleet, etc have never even remotely effected this stuff. Highly recommend that you use small dots of that stuff on the spots, it will never come off.

I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm talking about the itty-bitty circular stickers on the front of the head that covers the holes. Double stick stuff has one too many sticky sides. :)
@Jag42 ?

Black 100% Silicone, the stuff for windows and kitchen and bath, is my best friend when it comes to mounting heads and blending these kind of things. Just a dab will do ya!

The sticker is a cover for when you replace the lens. I would assume dirt my get into the fixture if it is not replaced. @Jag42 can you help us figure out if those black stickers on the lens... Do they need to be replaced if fallen/washed off?

Or at the very least, I worry that dirt will get between the outer lens and the inner lens more easily. I haven't tried removing a lens yet. I will say that with 225 miles yesterday, the electrical tape held up. I suppose if I were to use a small 2mm hole punch, I could make my own out of lots of different materials. :)

The head is sealed behind the plastic lense,no need to worry. I would just put a tiny dab of black silicone on them,or i can send you a new lense cover. The stickers just cover the notch tabs.

Thanks Jag42.

I am correct in believing that there is a sealed inner lens and then a removable outer lens? I was worried that forcing air, dust, moisture, etc. into those holes at highway speeds would cause some contaminates to get in-between over time and obscure the "visibility".

I'll make do with materials around here. Black silicone seems decent.
Out of curiosity, what does a replacement lens cost?

Hot glue. Of the PDR flavor works well too and peels right off when your done...
