is the two piece easier to install than the full one-piece?

Also would you be able to do this design/cutout?

I have a feeling I'm gonna be in over my head trying to install my tail light overlays....

Any tips? I'm 1000% sure I'm going to remove the tails to do it but haven't really considered anything else to make this any easier.

Hi Andy,
Here's a subtly aggressive yet clean-cut idea for a matte black overlay on the BRZ spoiler (outlined in red below only along the backing of the middle blade piece, not on the top). Works well with the existing black accents on the front bumper cover, side mirrors, and rear diffuser. And this would work with my BRZ STI black/blue theme I've got going.

My idea was inspired by this Release Series tC spoiler:

Can you make this? If you need a BRZ to work on in San Diego let me know!

My authorized installer here in San Diego Loves the two piece . One piece is standard cut. Specify two piece if thats what you desire .

btw-I can do the requested cut for you . Email me.

Oh boy, just got done (for now) applying my tail light overlays with the cut outs. The first one I had a lot of trouble with till I realized how pliable the vinyl really is once heated up. I did a lot better on the second tail light. I've never worked with vinyl before but I'll say as long as you are a patient person or like in my case, can encourage yourself to be patient for the sake of your car, you should be able to handle it. I can't imagine doing it without a heat gun or a professional hair dryer. My personal advice....

1. Clean the light first (soap/water mix)

2. Buff clean, make sure there's no finger prints

3. Spray some soap/water mix onto the light and onto the vinyl overlay

4. Using a squeegee of some sort smooth out the face of the light as much as possible. Get out all of the water too.

5. Start working on the edges, I choose the huge PITA curves at the end of the tail light (outside edge of the car) to start with. Heat the vinyl up to stretch it and then firmly press it down/squeegee it flat. Don't try to do the entire curve at once unless you're already experienced. Work from the inside out, saving the edges of the light for last. To avoid creases/wrinkles you're really gonna have to heat/stretch the vinyl.

As far as the sale, thanks Andy! got them in a week flat. They were shipped to my work and my secretary was trying to figure out if the envelope said "F$*# me" or "kill me"...turns out it said "Fragile"

I'm gonna see if I can fix up the first one tomorrow morning and I'll try to get some pictures too.

Andy, my suggestion to you would be that if you included a simple 8"x8" piece of vinyl with the tail light overlays it would give people the chance to practice doing the curves of the tails properly.

Pictures here! I love the overlays
