Look subtle enough for plod not to be bothering you. Much prefer it to going too OTT.

Ya quite easy m8 and comes with a knife and device to smoothe it out. I brought 2 30x30cm black1 for indicators but there was enough to do 4 indicators which was good because i was not happy with the first indicator i tinted, i cut it in a place i was not happy with. I also brought 2 45x45cm black1 to do both rear lights that went on great.

I could never work out why they fitted orange front indicator covers to MG's and clear ones to Rovers.
And not because I have a Rover but IMO I think the clear ones look best off all. I've seen several MG's locally fitted with the clear ones and the really suit it.

...... now thats put the cat amongst the pidgions.........

it couldnt be easier to put on. you just pull it over the lights, trim it to size and blast it with a hairdryer for a few minutes. it comes w/knife and spready thing too!

very tempted to try this - already have tinted windows so this would probably look good...

I thought about doing the headlights but i'm not sure if it would be overkill.

Not fussed one way or the other about the tinted lights, but I have to say that's a cracking job you did on the front number plate in the last pic - looks like it was made that way.

looking good, i've seen it done somewhere before on another forum, but can't remember where doh !!!

personally i think they look really good, maybe would have swopped lights with R45 ones, for the clear indicators, and done the whole lot.

certainly given me something to consider winder what they would like on a TB Mk1 saloon mmmmmmmmmmmm

got a set of R45 lights, just gotta pluck up the courage to fit them lol.

This stuff is legal on all lights. The supplier actually includes information about MoT testing and how the way fly eye works to meet the requirements.

I've used it on my front indicators only (even though they aren't orange) but am considering using it on my MGF rear lights.
