Yeah, it's basically smoked vinyl that you're going to have to stretch and heat, then cut to cover your tails.

My opinion is it never looks 100% up close, but it's decent from a little ways away. Small bubbles, wrinkles, etc.

I've put it on other vehicles before. It looked ok for about 4 months, then started to fade and wouldn't clean properly.

I would stay away if I were you. It took around 45 min per tail light and it will never look right around the edges because of pulling and shrinking that occurs.
