10-12 light tinting.

Who has the tail light tint from AM? I've got it on all my lights except the tails am just bought it due to being 20 dollars off+ 6% discount. Anyway what's the best way to put this on? I know its the same stuff that goes on the markers but bigger. Any tips for this giant sheet though?

Pick an angle that's what I did, start from there and go out. Use a soap mixture. Then you can adjust, also it will need a little stretching. If you stretch too much go off on one side and use a razor blade to cut it down. Hope it works well!!! Oh and keep it out of inclimate weather

So my car will be filling in the garage for two days due to rain. It says for the tint you houldnt wash it for 24 hours. So, that also says dont take out into the rain. I'm assuming?

It was pre cut. Not sure if its regular tint. It's a thick, durable, good quality vinyl. No complaints

Looks great. I like that deck lid panel, but I can't find one like that doesn't have the hole for the faux gas cap.

I used the vinyl precursor for my tails like most people. But for my side markers I just used some 5% tint that I got at the local auto shop. Has a 5 year "no fade" warranty. Cost me $15 and maybe an hour or two to get all the pieces cut and trimmed just rite. Ill post a pic tomorrow if I remember

It's a rough pre cut sadly. You'll have to cut it to get it to look clean. It's a PITA to install and it'll take about 30 minutes of done correct. It's the stuff at AM. I got it for $30 but I see its now $45 again.

They sell the gloss one at AM. But I just painted mine. Love that better
