PostSubject: DIY: How To Apply Vinyl To JDM Fog Light   Fri Apr 29, 2011 10:37 am

heres the how to on the ones me and my cuzn did...
we did these on his Almera Gti but this can be done any fogs..

Gave it try was realtively easy to be fair
It took about 15min to do the fog lights


Tools Needed
1.Hairdryer
2.squeegee
3.Stanley-Knife
4.Soapy Water


First thing to do is to clean the foglight to get any dirt or debris off.


Next thing to do is to lay the film down, and peel the vinyl away


Heat it up to make it more flexible and easier to work with and then spray the soapy water over the sticky side


Spray the foglight with the soapy water then flip the vinyl over and lay it onto the foglight. then start to push the water out, best thing to do is start from the curves of the light. keep the hairdryer on it during this stage.


This is what it should look like when all the water has been pushed out


End result


On my Cuzns car


When foglights are on

GOOD LUCK :thumbsup:

Very nice, I didn't get my tint on very well because I didn't use the soapy water.

soapy water only there so you can move, stretch the tint paper when applying making it easier to put on

Well if you don't use the soapy water, the film has lots and lots of air bubbles inside. The water and squeegee thing help remove all the air under the film.

Yes yellow bulb is better than yellow film...
But yellow film looks better when fogs are off

I don't like the look of yellow film... it's all about your personal preference Smile
