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:

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.

Thanks everyone!

Then I guess I'll just wait and let 'em settle and hope that they work themselves out! Yep, they came in three separate pieces from AM, mayo.

Scott, I was thinking that as well... I didn't know if I liked the silver bezels to separate each section and go with the stripes, or if all black would look better... I might just visit the chop shop soon to see what I want to do. Thanks for the suggestion.

Not trying to thread jack haha, how is the BMR K member Scott? I read a lot about it and BMR didn't seem to recommend it for daily driving use due to noise. Any complaints?

looks great, I may have to get myself some, still considering. I've got the MUSTANG 3rd brake light too, i must say that the bubbles will come out over time; the sun will sort it out.

Me too, not trying to abuse the thread!

Can’t answer this one yet as my car has been on jack stands since early November while I perform my Fall 2011/Winter 2012 mods. At this point I am not too concerned about additional noise as my car is not really a DD but I do like to participate in as many cruise runs and show & shines that I can in the summer.

Here is what the K-Member looks like:

Thanks Joe, I love the mustang 3rd brake light. It's just something small that sets it apart from most.

And thanks too Scott, that is very convincing... I may just have to pick up a set...
