    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.

    Is lamin-x for protection or looks? or both?

    As from what I know it tints the headlights..

    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.

    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?

    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

    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.

    Cheers,
    Joe

    who ever edits the photos. Please note S3 mad wants smoked tints i beleive.
    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
    Cheers
