^^^Hmmm, not too sure...I highly doubt that you will get pulled over for not having blinking side markers, especially if he can't seem them underneath the tint... Now, getting an inspection sticker might be another problem...

JM - I did the tinting thing to my grille lights last night and it looks great...but I had to trim the edges and leave a little amber showing on the rounded edge because it wouldn't stick. Any suggestions or did you have that problem?

Oh, by the way, I used regular tint with the glue...I couldn't find 5% cling at my local wally world, lowest they had in cling was 20% for some reason.

I dunno, my cling tint stuck all over...didn't have to trim anything. Maybe the glue stuff doesn't work as good as cling on corners... where's the pics, man!? Post up so we can all see... Are you going to do the side markers as well?

nice job and good idea. one question: does the amber light shine through the front turn signals enough for someone to see in traffic?? There are enough bad drivers out there who'd smash into me if they didn't know which way i was turning..haha

Yeah, you can see the amber lights when the lights are on, idk bout the side markers, b/c i have those nigh shaded, so you can see them, but it isnt as clear, but for the grille, Its like there isnt n e tint at night when the lights are on.

^^^Yeah, what he said...the front lights shine through at night no problem at all! The side markers look a little darker, but still shine through just fine.

Hey, so you bought an extra large kit? Was there plenty to use for other areas besides your corners/grill?

5%.. hmm... looks really dark! I have black car so it'd look badass too like yours does.

I have cut tail tint clings already that I bought for cheap (oh god did I throw them out?!)... have to get my lazy ass to actually put them on. (if I have them!)

I am just concerned how the cling actually CLINGS! I go 90mph on Interstate 75 down here for 2.5 hours to Naples and hoping it holds up!? Do you recommend any glue???

Any tips or tricks are greatly appreciated!! (Oh, and I am NO genius....but I kickass cuz I can spell!!)
