I had the same issue with my 3rd gen fogs. Ordered fog light tint from Lamin-x and they were too small so you could see different colored light around the edges. I complained to them and sent a pic of the issue and at my request they sent me two universal sheets for free. Installed and then trimmed it myself and I have loved it ever since. I went with "optic blue" on my silver truck. Their stuff is really thick and very high quality but apparently they are having problems with their sizing. I thought it was an isolated issue but now that doesn't seem to be the case. I would highly recommend Lamin-x to anyone but would recommend the universal sheets that you can cut yourself instead of the precut stuff.

So you tinted them with window tint, did you just trim a piece slightly bigger than the light and then squeegee it on and then trim the excess off with a razor blade? Or did you trim them to the lights and switch sides from left to right for your patterns when installing the tint since you can't put the tint inside the light like you could with a car window.

Looks good. Are those HID fog light bulbs?

Here's mine, you can't tell from the pic but up close there are a lot of bubbles and and fingerprints since I didn't pull the bumper off, I'm hoping the bubbles go away in a few days, I even used my drivers license to squeegee the water out since I sprayed the lights and the film with water. Probably should have used soapy water like window tinting does but the instructions said not to use soap. They didn't move around easy on the light even with water so I had to pull and re-stick them a few times til I got them looking decent. I'm not really happy with the results. The pic looks better than they do in person.

I cut squares out of the window tint roll that were closer to the size but still a little bigger, and applied the square to the fog lights. I didn't apply any liquid/spray, but I should have. I have small bubbles but not too noticeable unless you are an inch away from it. I applied it extremely slowly and used my license as I went along.

Trimmed up the edges with a utility knife. Not perfect, but you cant see the edges because of the bumper.

They are my normal lights, no HIDs. Yet. Still deciding on that one.
