I wouldn't even mess with that Ebay trash, unless it is Laminix. I used a can of Nightshade for my tails, came out really good. There is a how to in the Exterior mods section.

I have heard that it is actually harder to get the precut ones to stay on right, or at all. Sometimes the "precut" isn't right, or there are bubbles, and it fades after a while too. None of those problems are gonna happen with the nightshade. The nice thing with nightshade is if you mess up, hit it with a wet sand and 800 grit and let it dry then do it again.

this was the stuff i got...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BLACK-TAIL-LIGHT-TINTING-SPRAY-VW-GOLF-POLO-LUPO-GTI-V5_W0QQitemZ270275908732QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item270275908732&_trkparms=72:12|39:1|66:2|65:12|240:1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

(this is an english 1 as i am english but im sure the american stuff should be the same)
but when i did it i just took them out and washed them down then sprayed them i didnt sand them down, if i were to do them again i would sand them down to get the best finish. and it also says to only do around 3 or 4 coats i had to do about 10 before they looked dark and i used a hair dryer after i had sprayed just to speed up the process.

hope this helps
