I laid my cut film out against the lamp. It was close, but not perfect:



Another shot:



I then peeled back the film and applied it with the rubber spreading thingy they include with your order. I got one or two bubbles in there, so I had to peel it back again. They say this shouldn't affect it too much - the film cures over 48 hrs or so.



The outer ring wouldn't fit back on because there was significant overhang on the film, so I got my blade out and cut away the excess. It's not a perfect trace, but you can't see any issues, unless you get your face down about 4 inches from the headlamp.



Here's the finished product with the headlamp ring back on and the headlamp turned on:



I thought the film might dull the headlamp's light, but it works just fine. Here's a shot of the left and right lamps, with the film applied to the headlamp on the left of the picture only (passenger side).



Obligatory cool car shot in our warehouse:
