Lamin X Install
A few pointers & tips...
If you buy lamin x, get a professional to install it. Its not as easy as the 3-4 min lamin x video suggests. That guy must have installed it on tons of vehicles & been doing it for a long time. What I got from the video & instructions is its basically like installing a decal using the wet method. Basically clean the tailights, spray a little water on the decal or the tails. Then apply & squeegee the bubbles out. I can put a small decal on in like 10-15 mins tops.
I tried & its not as simple as that. Its a lot thicker than a decal. And its less forgiving. If you have any curves it will be a little harder. I'd recommend a professional. I tried one side for about 30 mins & had no luck. I just couldn't figure out how to get it bubble & crease free around the curve of the taillights. I tried just a little water at first like the instructions said & that didn't work so I then tried & plastered it with water so I could maybe move it around more & that didn't work.
There must be a technique to it. Its thick, not too pricey & I'm sure would last for years & look good, but I had to abandon ship...lol It looked simple but maybe I'm stupid..lol I have put on numerous decals, like bed stripes on my black 99 that I had, hood spears on my 07, a tailgate decal on my 07 that ran the width of my tailgate, a few back window decals, etc...I figured if I can put a decal on I could put this on.
I got one side left, i'm sure the other side is ruined with all the on & off I had to do to try to line it up. Maybe I'll try that one side again another day & if it works maybe order another set. But I may just leave it be & maybe get some diff taillights that are darker next tax returns time.
