Default Yellow Fog Light Application

So I'm planning to buy this yellow laminate stuff from here http://www.eurosportacc.com/lamin-x.htm

to apply to my fog lights. It supposed to be some good stuff, but for Euro application. They don't have it for Civics, but have sheets that you can cut yourself.

My question: Since the lights are slightly curved...any idea how to cut and install cleanly?

Yellow stain glass paint would be permanent though, right?

You would apply to the outside of the light also?

Thx for the suggestion. Will consider it.

PIAA Crystal Ion Bulbs do the trick too.

what kinda civic do u have? if you have a EG with oem or oem style fogs, you can take them apart, and the back of the projector lense is flat so you could stick it there

I think you might have to splice the film where you see at the lense score lines.

Pretend your headlight has 3 sections, separated by 2 score lines. You cut 3 sheets and tape them on with a bit of overlap. Then you cut at the score line lightly and peel away the left overs.

So does it burn the paint eventually? Or no?

Any idea if the paint turns out lookin shiny or dull? Is it still translucent even w/the yellow paint on it, since it's stain glass paint?
