I had purchased some "computer cut' film from a company that was supposed to fit my G6, but the looks of it when I help it up to the lens, it just didn't look right. Ended up getting a pro to install it for me. The same guy is going to do light smoke on my headlights when he gets the film in. My recommendation is, if your not sure of the curves of the lens your working on, get a pro to do it.

Did you buy it from R-vinyl? The pre-cut stuff they sell is crap. I ended up buying a bulk roll of light smoke and wrapped my heads and tails myself.

Tinting

Actually, I got them from Lamin-X.

Here's a link to that page -

I liked the thickness of the film, it felt like it would stand up to lots of rocks and other debris that gets thrown up. I think that they were 8mil, but the have thicker sheets also.

I thought about doing the same thing and just get some sheets and to it myself, but I ended up have them done by professionals. After they were done, they told me that the curve of the lenses was so great that they almost gave up on doing it, LOL.

Yea I like lamin-x because its thicker stuff. And yea the rear lenses were a bit of a bitch but with enough heat and pulling its not too bad.

A question to anyone with the tint, have you gotten any extra attention from the police? I've heard this is pretty illegal and I'd do a little bit of a lighter tint but I'm not looking to attract extra attention (since the tint I have is illegal but I actually need it for driving and I really don't want to pay to remove it).

ps.
got pulled over for taking a turn at 60mph on a yellow and cop didn't even say anything about the tail lights. I also live in florida though and not many of them care about that since we have a third brake light. oh and mine are completely blacked out.
