i have to some degree but the corners arent a separate piece like on the Bonneville, its all one piece, the headlights,turn signals, the whole bit...so im not sure how well it would work...and it would be an expensive screw up for sure, those headlamp assemblies are $$$$$$
you should take the lamp out and see if the lense and the backing are just siliconed and clipped together like the 00+ bonnies, i know my 98 Buick Century was just silicone and cips aswell

Looks good, LH! I am particularly fond of my 20% all around and agree that it'* about the right amount.

For those that are considering it, do ask about what brand they will be using. The shop that did mine uses only Llumar tint. It'* guaranteed not to fade or discolor. Though I will have to say that I've seen a few fade-to-purple tints on burgandy/maroon cars that didn't look bad at all. On white or black...no...

I think I see tint in my future...

Does that mean my future just got dimmer?

LOL!

I think I told you that my daughter called the Bonne "The Bat Cave" after the tinting was done. When it'* really bright, you can't see inside from outside, but when it'* night or shady, you can, surprisingly, see in OK. Kinda works like the one-way mirror glass works (sorta).
