People were saying that because you asked why it looked that way and in a picture that's how it looks. You weren't even sure, and you said you were going to check but never updated us. Just said oh they are sending new ones.

nah, what it is is just bubbles forming between the plastic of the light, and the vinyl itself. today I didn't fully peel them off, but i sat there very carefully with a razor blade to see if there's any protective covering, and like I initially thought, there def isn't. I still haven't taken them off though lol I'm not driving it much this week since I carpool to work, so it's just chillin in my driveway.

I agree. Maybe jay can send you his old ones so that we can figure this out once and for all. Lol

Glad you got new ones though jay. Hope it works out better than the other ones. Good luck.

this is pretty bad...i was wondering if anyone else had this experience. the blacking out looks so good, but damn, if it's gonna look all ghetto and cut like this does, i might as well rip them off and just say i wasted over $50 on this. ugh.
I have had my American Muscle tail light tint now for close to a year and its held up perfect. No issues !

It's not peeling up to my knowledge. All in tact so far, but not to say it won't in the future. It may of been just a bad batch of tail light tint but so far no peeling up on mine.
