Installation Video - Aftermarket Ford Edge Headlights
The video above details how to install aftermarket headlights on your 2007-2010 Ford Edge. The video is low quality but detailed and should give you a really good understanding of how to install any aftermarket headlights on the Edge. A word of warning: the narrator repeatedly says 7/22-inch instead of 7/32-inch but ignore him.

Blackout Tint Film - The Good Stuff
The murdered out look is all the rage but getting just the right film for the job can be difficult. There has been some confusion among our customers lately about what is blackout film and, really, that is completely our fault. Although it has been well over a year since we switched, we used to refer to our static cling film for years as blackout. When we realized that this was doing more harm than good because the static film actually had a blue hue to it and only blocked 80% of the light we switched to a true blackout film.
True Blackout Film?
So, what is a true blackout film anyway? Well, for starters, the blackout film we now offer is the same VLT as limo tint window film. In addition, Rtint blackout film is self-adhesive which will allow you to semi-permanently install it on even the craziest of curves.

In the video and photo above you can get a good idea of what Rtint, high-gloss blackout film really looks like. Buying online can be hard precisely because you're rarely sure how an auto accessory is going to look on your car whcih is why we offer the rebate program. As you can see, the proof s in the pudding.

Saturn Sky Side Stripe Graphics
Rvinyl has been in the business of vehicle graphics for years now but what makes Rgraphics different from anyone else? Well, because we are completely dedicated to DIY customization we do not have a shop where you can drive in and have your vehicle customized for you. It is this fact which keeps our prices so low and allows us to put our time and energy into designing better and cheaper products for you rather than paying high overhead for a storefront space.
What are some of the features of Rvinyl's Side Stripe Vehicle Graphics?
All vehicle graphics, racing stripe, side stripes and fender stripes are pre-mounted and pre-spaced for ease of installation. Even better, we use a special medium tack mounting tape that sticks to graphics with less force than the vinyl will adhere to your car meaning that once you get it on the vehicle in the correct position removal is easy.

The Effects of Solar Radiation
There is still a lot we do not know about the ways different types of solar radiation impact upon our health (let alone on our car's paint jobs) so it is always hard to make an informed decision about how to best protect oneself. Many people many not have even realized, for example, that there are two distinct types of solar radiation UVA and UVB rays about which we must be concerned. So, what are they?
UVA and UVB Rays
Both UVA and UVB rays are so-called ultraviolet radiation which is simply the same thing as visible light (i.e., electromagnetic radiation) albeit vibrating at a frequency our eyes didn't evolve to see. Anyway, the difference between these two is simply that UVA is long wave radiation whereas UVB is short wave. The long wave UVB is traditionally what scientists and doctors have been concerned with because it is lower energy and penetrated only to the level of the skin where cancers are thought to originate. However, recent research is showing that we need to be concerned about both types and learn to protect ourselves from the full spectrum of UV rays.
How to Protect Ourselves?
Obviously, sun screen is an excellent idea as well as avoiding things like tanning booths and seeking shade at any time. One way to do this is through the use of window tint film both at home and in your car. Although many articles on the subject do not specifically mention the damage UV rays can cause to your eyes it goes without sayingthat they too are susceptible to the same type of damage as your skin. As such, you should always consider windshield visor strips when choosing a tint package for your car or truck to give yourself as complete a protection as possible.
A great article can be found here for those interested in learning more about preventing skin cancer.
