This is the stuff, i got mine about a year ago and it's already doubled in price lol.
Ah well, you need 2 of these.
Put them up against your fog, or make a template.
Get a scalpel or sharp knife, cut around.
Make sure fog is clean, i used white spirit.
Peel back film and put on fog and heat up with heat gun or hairdryer to get rid of wrinkles.
