yeah, and also all the stuff they recommend with it, like three different liquids and a plastic rubbing thingii lol
but im not that good in throwing stickers and tint on so maybe i did it wrong, but i had my friend (he got a tinting company.. he did an amazing job on my tail lights) to help me out on the other side he even said it was tooo short, so i dunno...

Alright, well we have plenty of hot days, and my wife has some professional stylist hairdryers (since she'* a hair stylist herself), so I'll see how it all goes.

Waiting to hear as well. Since I blew up the front bumper cover and Pass. headlight, the new headlight looks a little fresher than the other. I bet that film would even them out.

Wish they had red.

Wish i did, but its been very hot and humid out here in the past couple of weeks, and the instructions say not to install in high humidity, so I'm waiting for it to get a little better out. I might have time to do it today.
