    Heres the site if anyone wants to have a look: http://lamin-x.co.uk

    The rears pictured above look good. The subtle tint they offer also looks good I think. But some of the cars in their gallery look ridiculous with dark tinted headlights haha. Surely thats not legal ?

    Is that the subtle tint film?

    And how big a bit do you need to do both rear lights?

    Could this be done without removing the lights or would it be a mare?

    It's four small nuts to remove the rear lights. Takes about five minutes. You could do it with them still on the car but it'd be easier with them off. The added bonus is that you won't be paranoid about the neighbours thinking you're strange..

    Im looking at doing my fog lights and indicators and trying to decide between e-tech and lamin-x. How was it with e-tech? Is it easy enough to get a decent finish with 1 coat as I dont want mine too dark, but dont want them looking patchy and uneven either.
