Just did mine, only suggestion I have is be patient and careful with the taillights that wrap around the car (non trunk piece)..they were a pain for me.

What oil is the clutch linked to? The tranny oil or is it the brake fluid?

Finished last night, installed today. Look good from a far, but far from good. The top part of the brake light kicked my ass. It'll due for now but if I had to do it all over again I'd probably pain it.

Yeah mine are the same, good from far but far from good, when I choose to do it again, I'd take it to a tint shop down the road.

Do you think the film will come off easy with a heat gun, or is this going to be the day of sanding from hell?

I'm pretty sure it'll come off fine, I went back to re do one of the sides and it came off fine with the heat gun, just got super thin..

Film comes off easy, but the glue gunk left behind is a PITA to deal with apparently.

Is that gunk similar to debading and dealing with the glue from that?
