vinyl tint

i have some vinyl tint for my tail lights that i have been waiting to put on for quite some time now. however my expertise in applying vinyl is not up to par with say my ability to turn a wrench. has anyone ever applied vinyl or knows someone who has?

It's not hard at all. I did the vinyl tint insert for my taillights in about 15 minutes.

I bought mine from AM, the instructions provided should be enough. I just followed the instructions.

Make sure the lights are as clean as possible. Then spray the back of the vinyl with a water soap mixture. (1 good drop of dish soap per spray bottle is usually good enough. ) To the point where it's wet but not dripping.

Line up the piece and slowly apply onto the light. Take your time. The water will help you maneuver it around.

Once you've got it stuck on. Grab the provided squeegee, spray the piece and work out any bubbles or creases from the center of the piece towards the edges to get them out. Again, take your time.

If there's a bad crease, lift the piece and try again.

This exactly. Don't worry about having to lift and try again either. I had to try 3 times with the last peice. That pesky small light on the ends.
