Would love to do this but here in Alberta it is illegal, also if you ever get rear ended and they say they could not see your tailights you can be held accountable for all damages no matter how much they are tinted , totally not worth the risk
There are plenty of cars with factory tinted tail lights. Especially the Aport or higher end trims. The G70 Sport has darker tail lights than the other trims.
The Lamin X Tint is basically that. The other options are darker and probably illegal.

Got my universal Lamin X tint sheets in a couple days ago. Haven't had a chance to install them yet due to my work schedule. I'll post pics when possible. Also, I've got an appointment for window tint tomorrow. I'll post before/after pics. I'm most likely going with 50% tint, which won't show up that much, but I don't want anything too aggressive.

It's a piece of Lamin-X I cut myself.
Looks great and I'm looking to do exactly what you did, how exactly did you cut the Lamin-X? I'm guessing you bought the universal sheet, cut a rectangle close to the size of the turn signal and then stuck it on and trimmed it with a razor?

*UPDATE*

Finally got around to installing the replacement, universal tint for my taillights (because I did such a horrible job the first time around with the pre-cut product).

Let me just say, it was SO much easier, and it turned out SO much better. Take a look....


Watched a few YouTube videos and copied how some professionals do it...

And the finished product. It's so smooth and beautiful!!!

Now I'm not ashamed of when people look at my car up close! Haha. Considering this, I STRONGLY recommend getting the universal tint for the G70, the pre-cut is incredibly difficult to work with whereas the universal allows you to tack it on to the panels around the light, stretch it and conform it appropriately.

(2) 12" x 32" sheets are the size you need.

Ugh. I bought the Lamin-X for mine but haven't attempted it yet ... might just pay a professional to do it.
I think that would be the right way to go.

😞

Edit: here is a pic to illustrate what I'm talking about...

I've tried placing a wedge on top to squeeze it down overnight, but it just comes right back up during the day.

And my car is dirty to top it all off. Hah. 🙁
