I had Mr.Tint in Northampton do my tails, I'm sure they'd be willing to do your headlights.

ive done a couple. its not too bad. heat gun or hair dryer is key to get it smooth. i wouldnt recommend lamin-x only because its really thick and hard to work with.

tools needed:
-heat gun or hair dryer (low heat)
-razor
-sharp pointy object (tack, needle, metal scribe optional)
-squeegee (credit card or bondo applicator will do just fine)
-windex or plastic lens cleaner
-water sprayer with soapy water, dish soap works fine (dont go overboard with the soap)

-clean the headlight surface really good
-spray the headlight with a light coat of soapy water
-lay on film and position where need be
-squeegee(sp?) to remove soapy water out from under the film
-use heat to soften film and stretch if need be ensuring all soapy water is squeegeed out
-trim edges for clean look and finish
-let dry and cure

if there is any bubbles on the surface, dont worry about it, you can pop the bubble with a razor or sharp poiny object and squeegee out the water. most tint films may adhere back to themselves and seal over time. i know that lamin-x does this not sure about others.

i did my headlights in lamin-x and hated it. did my tails in ebay tint and love it.
