Yeah, I kind of forgot about that 3rd light being all clear. I'll have to talk to Bat about that. This one will be REALLY easy to install.

Not sure if Underground Graphics (glilly) is still making overlays, but I found his to be MUCH easier to work with than the Blue Batmobile ones.

The BBM ones always come rolled up which makes them a total PITA to work with. The last couple sets of Underground Graphics ones I've done have come out perfect and I honestly think the material is a little nicer.

Just my .02$

I can't comment on the material vs. others since this was my first vinyl overlay, but mine were handed to me in a flat envelope. Maybe that has to do with shipping, but I met up with him in person and that wasn't an issue.

Thanks for the info, though.

please, please, PLEASE do not pay $65 to have these installed. They are simply high quality stickers. it literally takes 5 minutes to apply, and i would hate to see a fellow nasioc member scammed into paying anywhere near that much. Its not hard, i have a set myself, you can do it yourself!

I did the inners myself but tore one of the outters, I didn't feel like buying sets until I got it right. So I paid a guy how works with oracal on a regular basis to do it. These are NOT stickers dude, you need to have a bit of skill with vinyl to get them on.

I have authorized installers around the country as well. If applied correctly, they wont peel!

I have done vinyl lettering and stuff but this is even worse. I did the inners myself as well and they turned out well but I totally butchered the outters. The overlays seemed to have way too much excess material on the outters and i "overtrimmed" one trying to fix it. I could have still used it but it wound up with about 10 wrinkles in it because of the weird shape of the lense. I honestly don't know how anybody can install these things. Not my cup of tea... now I have to order more AND pay someone to do it. Hope Andy gets back to me soon because my car looks stupid with only the inners.

Lol, 02BlueSuperRoo I feel your pain, I had the same thing happen. I drove around with just the inners on for a week. I've installed full struts and spring combos, brakes, swaybars, headers, etc etc, but vinyl is not my thing.

Having them on there really makes me excited to get this finished though as they look even better in person then they do in the pics and I really like them.

Here is 5% limo tint over the two rear lights, as well as the 3rd light above. These are 3M films that worked out great. I had it professionally installed but i watched him do it, it looked easy except for those bumps over the rear lights. Also, oddly the 3rd light has bumps on it too, not hard to place a vinyl over just cosmetically unappealing up close because the film brought out those bumps.

I loved the red films with the middles cut out and almost went that route myself but decided overall the rest of the car was dark so mine as well do the lights that way too.

^Normally not a fan of the tinted look, but black on black just looks mean.

And yeah, it's annoying that they put those goofy bumps in there, seemingly for no reason.

Where did you get your film. From Bat or other? Could you remove the bumps on the lens before install?

What they mean by bumps are a couple of weird countour "humps" that are molded into the shape of the lens. Kind of like an inverted cupped hand.

Here's my overlays. I wanted something different while still keeping an "OEM" type appearance. I installed myself without much difficulty, just need patience. The amber sections are a separate piece so if I ever decide that I don't like it I can peel it off and just have red with cutout.
