    IMG_1185.JPG Very nice... just picked up my 14 SHo with 10k miles and had it tinted (ceramic and windshield). More to come and looking at a tune next. Any thoughts and can a dealer tell? Curious about warranty.

    I really like the look of your tail lights. My Lamin-X tint just showed up in the mail. Any tips on cutting out the clear areas? Did you just apply the whole thing and then do the cut-outs with the razor blade?

    Yea that's how it's usually done unless you can order the precut.

    Sorry for late reply - yes I used a razor and hand cut the clear areas. It was a nerve-racking job but luckily the clear areas are highlighted by chrome accent that shows through the tint nicely. I just followed on the outside of the chrome surround.

    Thanks for the advice. I went with the lighter shade "Tint" and after I put them on I'm not sure I need to cut out the clear. I figured that I would live with it for a day or two and see.

    Looks good - I agree, don't think you need to cut them out.

    Thanks. I used the "Tint" colored film from Lamin-x. It's the lightest shade of gray that they have. I also used "Tint" on the headlights.
