Attempted the Fly eye tint today, then the rain arrived
thats looking cool so far ! and their was me thinking this was going to be a boring tennis post Bloody english weather !
looks good, was it easy to apply ?
Yeh tell us more mac
The only issue is taking my time lol, hairdryer to warm up the tint while applying to the curves is needed, it is quite easy to crease if not careful tho, but I think it's worth it. Hopefully get the rears done tomorrow and possibly the headlights if I get the time.
Better looking than Serena Williams anyway!.....Looking good Matey!
looking good man, damn rain lol
watch out when your polishing tho once u got fly eye got it stuck in the holes its annoying lol
Might have to mask it when polishing then lol
yeah i just used to be carefull but always managed to get loads of white filled holes in the fly eye haha
aitp not far off nah too
Can't wait for AITP, looking forward to all the mods that have been done
Managed to get rears finished, happy days
spot on man, u done the fronts?
ive taken mine off the front, in a nut shell a couldnt see much lol
Does it affect the light output then
did on mine mate, my gf has them on her a3 and hers are fine so could have just been my lights in general tbh man
F*ckin' raining again ....................
Looking good Mac. I've got very similiar kit to flyeyes on my headlights and found the light output fine not drop IMO
Look forward to seeing it at AITP mate
Nicely done matey
Just darken the crome strip in the headlights paint them matt black
Nice mac looking good as usual.
Is that film??
Looks great pal, can't wait to get mine finished, few more tweaks to be done before AITP, damned modding bug, just can't shake it lol
That is defo on the cards, but will have to be after AITP, how long did it take you to do fella
Aye man, it's a fly eye tint film
Just giving the police an excuse to pull you over for a chat. Especially those who tint front lights. No doubt if you get stopped and asked to remove it it will be all the fault of the police and not the fact that lights are there for safety not to just look pretty. By all means for shows and the like. Even replacing them with clear lenses or HIDs but obstructing ANY light source for the means of vanity is just daft. If your insurance was to note that in a crash you tinted lights they would/could use that as a get out of paying up. Not to mention where front lights have the fly eye tint. You lose a lot of the lumen output as you cover the lense in some way or another. Just as daft as front dark window tints. Just my opinion I suppose but backed up by legislation too.
MOT guide as of 2012
Inoperative or less than 50% of the light
Obscured so that less than 50% of the lamp
illuminating surface is visible from the front
or rear as appropriate
Not visible from a reasonable distance due
to excessive damage, deterioration, or
having products on the lens or light source
Shows a light other than red to the rear and
white to the front (or yellow if a front
position lamp is incorporated in a yellow
Adversely affected by the operation of any
other lamp, e.g. dual-function lamps on
ive thought about getting some new healdights and doing this too them, mine are not in the best condition in all fairness
fly eyes are fully mot legal
It does give the tinted light effect
Really? It would be an excuse for traffic to give you a pull regardless. Anything at all over your front lights will reduce the light output. I am up for almost any mod but messing with front/rear lights and brake lights in any manner that would reduce their lumen output imho is just daft. Someone hits you from behind and states to insurance that your rear brake lights were tinted or you hit say a deer at night and the insurance folk note your fly eyes it just gives them a get out clause. Go mod daft but anything safety related is there for a reason.
sweet best get ebaying again lol
