I absolutely love my Lamin-X! It was harder to install then I would have liked. 30 minutes a side.

I trimmed about 1/8" to 1/4" of extra material from about 50% of the edges because the tint was too big. I don't think the precut is intended to fit exactly.

It looked hazy and bubbly when I got done. I'll admit I thought there was a good chance I'd be ripping the stuff off in a day or two after the install. As suggested, I poked holes in the bigger bubbles with a sharp exacto. Two weeks later it looked almost perfect because the moisture evaporates through the breathable vinyl.

Install in a warm environment and have it installed by an experienced pro if you've never dealt with film. Do it when you are in a patient mood, expect a challenge and expect to lift and reposition several times.

Link to gallery. 6% tint on headlights and yellow on fog lights.

I would like to see a color match for all. IMO it looks best if it matches the car.

I like the look it's just the people that do it too dark and you can't tell if they're braking or signaling.
