Installation Instructions:

  1. Prepare the surface of the light by wiping it down thoroughly with water to remove all the dust and dirt. Then spray a good amount of soap and water mixture onto the brake light; this allows the film will slide around.
  2. Peel the tint off the paper and carefully apply it one side at a time, either left to right or vice versa. Align the decal so its centered on the brake light. Once the tint is placed where you want, carefully use the squeegee provided to smooth out the air bubbles. Do not worry if you have a few small air bubbles; its perfectly normal.
