There shouldn't be any overlap. Test fit it before you peel off the adhesive backing.. then you'll know if you need to trim anywhere.

Also, use a solution of soap and water so you can slide the pieces into place and make them fit perfectly.

soap and water helps. after applying the kit, i just used a pen to mark where i need to trim. the kit is not gonna be perfect.

the pieces arent gonna be a perfect fit...you just basically have to lay them on the headlight (not peeled) and trim off the part that overlaps...just take ur time and it should look pretty good
