Hey all ,
is the lamin - x easy enough to fit ?
not too bad.
Get a bottle of de-ionised water, one of those gardening sprayer to spray it onto clean lights, and a loyalty card. Other than that you just need a craft knife to trim the edges off.
As lamin-x repairs itself, if you do get any little imperfections (bubbles), just pierce them with a pin, rub them down and the next days they will be gone.
Wash your lights well ahead of doing the job, and after washing them, rinse them with clean water very well to get as much of the residue of any chemical contaminants off of them as you can.
It's not easy if you've never done it before, it requires patience, a keen eye, and a dust free environment (as much as is possible).
I had a couple of imperfections in the first one I did, but next day I pierced them with a needle, washed and then dried it and within a day it was invisible. They look pretty much perfect now.
If I can do it, anyone can!
Is lamin-x for protection or looks? or both?
As from what I know it tints the headlights..
Many thanks ,
ill have a go so it should be fairly easy are yours smoke ?
I found lamix to be fairly easy and if you follow what warrencox said you will be find
i went for the dark gun-smoke and to be honest its too dark! At night i can really tell a difference in brightness. Some nights i am very tempted to rip them off but i do like them.
So your saying its no good ?
i have ordered the same ...
Will it pass with a MOT ?
yeah its alright still but i am thinking about getting some higher powered bulbs to counter it, maybe.
and yes it will pass mot, mine has and i have had no trouble with the police either
Lex car looks good
As lex said will pass mot. I've got gun smoked aswell.
yes i have ordered gun smoke so will look like yours ....
cant wait to fit !
I think this would finish off my front end but wouldn't like any disturbance to the beam or anything! Am I wrong in thinking this boys?
don't do it. your car's spot on as it is
If you do only go for "tint" it won't disturb the bulb pattern noticeably on the light board so you will never notice it
Gun smoke is too dark, tint is perfect
It's easy-ish to fit, just make sure you get all the large bubbles out, the smaller ones will go away in a couple of days
i think i will just be getting my tinter to do it
smoke is a nice look tho
Good to know mate cheers
What size do I need to do a 2004 A3? I want to do the fogs aswell. Was gonna go for 12"x24" x 2 to do both the headlights and the fogs.

Get a photo of your car up and ask some one to photoshop

And smoothie probably be best if you could do the tint such as Warren Cox has and smoked as what i have.
So he can see what both look like
Ohh god how will i stop myself?lol that looks wicked what you guys think?
Looks great smoothie! Knew it would buddy!
You won't and it looks lovely goes well with the grill and is not too dark
