Installed Headlight Armor kit, Very Happy

Installed Headlight Armor this past week, i had previously tinted them as i used to tint windows and had some left over. I really liked the look but it was a little to thin and also on the tail light i had to use strips. so i went and purchased the headlight armor kit for the tail lights, side markers and backup lights. Installation went easy for me, it helped that i had applied film in the past, they are cut very well, nice and thick and easy to install.

thanks, i was a little concerned when i started that it was one piece for the tail lights, but i worked it from one side to the other with my fingers, shoving the bubbles and it all went down really easy, then i use the squeegee from the center out. perfect no bubbles at all. really good quality.

How Did it stick on top of the raised lettering that is on all of the light lenses. I have a full Headlight Armor kit, but have concerns that it will bubble where the raised letting on the lights are.
Did you have any
problem?
Do have a closeup of a marker lamp or something?
The last thing I want is a bubble over these letters..
