Default Tail light tint installed

So I bought myself some taillight and rear marker tint for Christmas and finally installed it this afternoon. There's a few bubbles still left in the film and with all my strength (and I'm no weak dude) I couldn't get the bubbles out to the edge. But I still think it looks good and isn't too dark that it'll make me invisible from the rear at night. Without further ado, here's the pic whoring:










Here you can see the difference between running lights and braking lights:







Any feedback welcome. Constructive criticism preferred haha.

looking good. I had that film but I didn't like the final outcome so I took it off and sprayed um with niteshade and I taped off the backup lights which compliments the fake gas cap.

On a side note, I filed down the letters on the third brake light. the decals only like 5 or 10 bucks so if you wanted to retry it I would recommend it.

It looks really good, Mad!
It goes well with the blue and silver combo.

Looks good... nice job! Don't worry about the bubbles... they'll work themselves out in a week or two.

Bingo D!
Don't overwork the film, it will just get scratches on it. Some warm weather and time will do the trick my friend...looks great.
Did you get that at AM, and did it come in three pc's for each tail mad?

Looks good bro! Did you get the tint and 3rd brake light from AM?
I did the same. I like the expressions you get from people behind you, when they see the Mustang brake light all lit up. People smile and point, which in turn makes me smile. =-)

Looks good, but I think it would look even better with black tail light bezels.
