    Step 1: Clean the lenses. Clean your hands. Make sure there are no residues from the cleaning process remaining on the lenses or your hands.
    Without removing the lens cover from the backing paper hold it up to the lens and make sure you have the correct one / orientation (i.e. Slightly ovoid lenses).

    If it is cool - below 65 degrees F gently warming the lens with a hair dryer will help things along.

    Wet down one lens with water - a clean spray bottle / plant mister works great.


    Step 2: If it is cool - below 65 degrees F gently warming the material with a hair dryer will help things along.

    Carefully remove the cover from the backing paper - handling the adhesive as little as possible - Use handling tabs when possible. Mist down the adhesive side and gently place on the lens.

    Handling the edges align the front portion of the piece - (left side of the photo) then generally align the remaining edges. The piece will be 'floating' on the beads of water on the lens. Be gentle the adhesive is pressure sensitive.


    Step 3: Squeegee the front corner - about the first 3-4 inches.


    Step 4: Next re-wet the adhesive side of the kit and align the far inside corner - in this case the lower corner of the trunk opening.


    Step 5: With the far corner aligned squeegee the corner - a couple of inches, just enough to hold the piece in place. Now firmly squeegee from the front corner where you started diagonally along the ridge line down to the inside lower corner that you just tacked. the photo from 10 o'clock to 4 o'clock.


    Step 6: Now squeegee down from the center diagonal area in step 4 toward the bottom of the kit.

    NOTE: This kit was installed with ambient air temps ~90 degrees F. If it is cool out the use of a hair dryer on low will be necessary for steps 4-8.

    Do not overheat the film, you just want to warm to about 90 degrees F.

    Squeegee in .5 - 1.0 inches increments from left to right to distribute the film.


    Step 7: Continue firmly squeegeeing in short strokes as in step 6.


    Step 8: Continue to the very bottom of the kit until all film has laid down.


    Step 9: Repeat steps 6-8 on the top half of the kit.


    Step 10: With a sharp razor knife carefully trim off the handling tabs. If you have any areas that are misaligned or overhanging you can either wrap the edge if it a flat surface or simply trim off the excess.

    Go over the edges with a suede detail cloth / paper towel wrapped squeegee to make sure the edge is fully set. Gentle heat from a hair dryer on low can help things along if it is cool out.





    Now you are done, stand back and enjoy!


    The Smoke (30%) covers shown in this tutorial will turn the bright red tails to a rich deep dark burgundy red. If you are looking for something darker you can select Stealth Smoke (20%).

    With our Smoked taillight covers you will be able to change to look of your vehicle - while still allowing your brake lights and running lights to function as intended.

    You can remove these at some point in the future if you are so inclined - though they can only be used once.
