      You can definitely do this at home. All you need to do is to make sure you get a very thin sunfilm and make sure there are no air bubbles while applying the film.

      Other tools you will need are a blade to puncture the bubbles and let the air out, a hair dryer to blow hot air, and a rubber tint tool.

      We did try this on my Baleno, but I preferred the stock looks to the smoked one, so took it off.

      Baleno tail lamps are flat, hence its easier to apply the tint.
      The tail lamps like the ones on the Swift are more curvy, so the tint might get wrinkled while applying it.

      Good luck anyways.
