    A friend recently gave me the Outmotoring tinted lens protection set, but there are no instructions with it. Has anyone here installed this? I've already got the dealer installed 3M clear on the headlights and whatnot, so I'm curious if this would go in place of the clear, or over the top of it? And what is the best method to put this onto the nicely curved headlight lens? Attack it with a hairdrier, or borrow elbow grease from a few of my neighbors?

    Before you put any kind of tinted film over your lights, I'd suggest checking your state's vehicle code. Ist verboten in a lot of states! :rolleyes:

    OK, that certainly looks easy enough. I think I can handle that easily enough. Does look like I want to remove the current protection film to make sure it's got the best seal to the lens.

    And Dwight, you are absolutely correct, I will need to check on that. Unless someone out there is familiar with WA RCW and knows whether this legal or not. ;)
