    Rear Light Tint Film

    Anyone had personal experiences with this? How easy is it to fit really and how long did it last?

    Thanks!

    Are you on about the kit from Flyeyes? Theres is really easy to work with aslong as you warm it up when it starts to get stiff so it flex's and you can stretch it. Plus the rear lights should be easier than the fronts.

    Yea, that looks good might get some for front lights looking at that But do you know if you can put on 2 layers as I would want the rears darker than that.

    Uhm.. i guess you could, but its like a honeycomb design so if the second layer covered the holes of the first layer the light output could be affected whereas with just the first it does not affect light output.

    I guess you could try it? You would need to order 2 sheets though. For £15 a set you could give it a go

    Ahh, I see so if I put on 2 lots and done them in exactly the same place it would look no different. Might just have to fork out for some new professionally sprayed lights then!

    You can always tint the rears with spray then apply the film?
