Fill spray bottle with water and a couple drops of dish soap
Clean headlight
Spray headlight with mixture
Remove tint from backing. Spray both sides of the overlay with the mixture
Apply to headlight
Slide vinyl into final position
Gently squeegee extra water out
Carefully dry

Here is frosted white

It's transparent, but it really tempers the yellow. In direct sunlight it's less transparent then in the dark. I included both dark and in light photos.

What's nice is that the amber turn signals show, so it wont attract cops at night.

Overlays were very nicely cut. Good packaging also.

So I finally did this and hella messed up on the passenger side. Dont really want to order another set so I'll just call it a beauty mark for time being.

For those who haven't installed it yet, do the water trick. I installed it the same way I installed the iphone screen protectors and it didnt turn out well. I got a ton of bubbles that popped.
