I almost hate to admit this, but I did the HVAC tape several years ago on the S70. You have to cut into strips and different shapes to avoid crinkling up when installed on the curved surface. Light output has not deteriorated since but is still not as great the 850.

You have to bring your own container. It’s a nickel deposit

I would swing up to I84 and cut across west Chester , it’s longer as the crow flies but you avoid NJ Death Race 287 and the 95 β€œ park at 65” area too.
