    So after seeing a few fellow members have the LaminX placed on their fogs, i decided that i wanted to get a set. I am more conservative, so i decided to order the "tint" color. The order came really fast, so i was excited to get them installed today.

    Upon first opening the package, i was a little dissapointed that the tint was a little light. After installing both fogs, i took pictures of my truck and now i'm convinced that LaminX sent me the wrong color. I am almost positive that they sent me the "blue" instead of the "tint" color. I e-mailed LaminX and we'll see what they say.


    I hope they will fix this problem for me

    Yeah....the eyelids were perfect before i applied the clear lol.....i'm thinking about ordering new ones, but they were pretty expensive for an aesthetic mod, so i'm doing the wait and see for the moment.......i'm hoping the sun will fade them a little....but at least i did them......rather than ordering something and being sent the wrong one. The blue is growing on me a little, but i think in the end result i would rather have "tint"

    Just got off the phone with Mike of Lamin X and they acknowledged that it was their fault and will be sending me a pair of Tint for my fogs.....yah for Lamin X and their customer service. He even e-mailed me to double confirm. Awesome.

    I think the blue looks good as well. I was going to order the blue but I decided on the tint since I am going for an all black look.

    Yeah I'm going for that same look, which is why I want to rock the tint. Blue is starting to grow on me, but I think eventually I'm going to put on the tint
    thanks for the props guys

    Looks sweet! I just ordered the blue myself....glad to see how much better it looks that stock. I haven't really tried to take the fog light off. How difficult is it to remove it? Any tips? Also i watched the video on the Lamin-x website looks easy to put on, did u have trouble?

    Heck, I think it looks good (and I HATE blue lights)!

    So, what size did you cut to? I tried it the other day and didn't have a good way to get the right size for my fogs (or a good way for a clean cut - no razor).

    Finally, did the entire circle fit perfectly, or did you have a "fold" in the plastic that you had to fiddle with to lay flat?
