First Mods + Tint Questions

My first round of mods!! (yes, I'm a noob!)
-Tail lights tinted
-Chevy symbol taken off
-Short antenna to arrive any day (I ordered from cobalt-addiction.com)

My question- I did the tint myself with film. How long does this usually stay on? Its been about a week and still fine. Also, the film is a tiny bit bigger than the light, should I trim it down to exact size to prevent it from peeling? Or is it fine hanging off a tiny bit?

Comparison


All done!

Looks really good. The tint should stay on for a while.

I agree!

I'd love to debadge mine - but it being an LT is one of my favorite parts, so I'd like to leave that all on there, along with the bowtie (painted or vinyled black)
