The material is a thick, durable film. I can attest to this since I tinted my fogs 3 years ago with no peeling. Given the contours of my tail lights these were much more difficult to install. It was difficult to fill the negative space of undercuts. It was also difficult to round one of the facets on the side. I had to make relief cuts which are difficult to see but still visible. As I was doing the second one I got better at squeegeeing as I applied it instead of placing first and then squeegee. The heat gun also helped a lot. I couldn't help but wonder if Lamin-X could produce a die and stamp it into the shape of the contour at the same time punching the material out. My guess is this would be expensive to make for every year and model, but would stretch the material into the desired shape to match the contours perfectly. I'm also guessing these are currently cut by hand on a jig. Other than this, I am happy with the purchase.

Installed on my 2013 kia optima. Installation was easy. Only bad thing is you can tell its a film. It's not like painted smooth tail lights. But not a permanent thing either, so great if you decide to go back to factory
