Custom! and I requested in my notes and specification box to have the hairline lighter density and then fade to heavier towards the brown, as well as have the knots lightly bleached. It came super thick and unbleached and double knotted at hairline. I don't mind it really as I can tweeze but Id rather get the faux bleaching figured out first then see if I have to. 
           The problem is if applying foundation to the knots to lighten them, do I turn the cap inside out and dab as I would with bleach? is foundation ok to use?

I used to use a blonde highlight spray by Jerome Russell or whatever I could get my hands on & then Sally Hansen. 

You could try a blonde highlight spray if you can get hold of one, foundation or maybe a concealer if the foundation is too thin.

The unit looks nice on you Aphelion!  As someone else said, it looks a little thickish in the crown, but that will settle down. 

Instead of heat, you can roller set the hair.  Flexi-rods make a nice set, and so do the old school magnetic rollers.  You'll want to use a setting lotion, gel, or mousse (alcohol free, if possible).  Also, I'd go with faux bleaching.

Yes, you need to turn the cap inside out, and foundation is fine, as well as powder.
