Decided to tint the cadirat today..... Not perfect but it came out a lot better than some tint jobs I've seen around

this will be my only and last time doing it outside in the driveway..... Surprised

between the wind ( blowing dirt on the glass that my eyes couldnt see), the sun drying the solution, and the landlord randomly showing up to mow the lawn while I'm half way through the process, it was just a bad idea.

I did F up the back glass so next week Ill try it again. The angle, the length of back dash, and low roof made it a pain in the ass! The defrost also made it hard to get the air bubbles out. So I'll think it through a little more before I attack it. Arrow

but overall Im happy for my first time tinting and doing it in a 1/2 hour in the driveway. Very Happy

Heat gun, razor blades, lotsa sudsy water and more patience than you think you'd need... And I STILL can't tint a window! lol

You're a better man than I. I just cough up the dough to someone who knows what they're doing now. Although, every couple years I do try to prove to myself that I still can't tint my own stuff. lol

Nice work. Smile

Looks good, I don't even want to know what it would come out like if I tried. I was freaking out trying to put on those pillar blackouts on my car. lol

It looks reeeally nice man. Tints suit that car perfectly. Good luck with re-doing the back, I know I wouldn't do that well of a job.
