Fog light tint install

Been searching here for an hour and can't find an answer.
I am ordering yellow tint for my fogs and wanted to know if they can be installed in place. 13 and 14s are recessed a bit behind the grill, so it will be tough to fit them on. Has anyone done this without removing the grill? Can i just keep it plenty wet and get it in place and squeegee it out ok? Or will the grill need to come off? If so, how big of a job is that?
Thanks in advance,
Troy

You technically could but it be a bit tuff to get the edges flat. Now removing the grille you would have to remove the bumper cover which is'nt so much of a hassle but just takes a bit of time. It's just removing a bunch of different sized screws.

No need to take anything apart. Keep it wet and use a credit card as a squeegee. There's no overlap to worry about. A heat gun or blow dryer makes it even easier.

Thank you. The more I look at it, the more I really like it.
Best $25 spent on this thing!
