Talking i want to tint my windows

so i want to tint my own windows but dont know if i should do it myself or have someone do it. i have checked around places and they want around 200$ to do it. but i dont know how hard it would be if i did it myself. If anyone has any tips i would gladly take them.

the back windows a biatch, rest are easy. Just take your time with it, you'll be ok. If its a really nice car however i proabably would leave it up to the pros :thumb:

I used to tint windows for a living. I say take it to someone that knows how to do it. It wouldn't be hard to use more $ than that in messed up tries!

As for the $200 price, thats on the high side of normal here. Depends on the quality of tint used. You would be SURPRISED at what quality tint costs.

that is a good price especially if they use good quality tint. when you do yours, dont spare the soapy water it can always be squeegeed out. ive done 15 cars and practice is what really helps, ****in creases, and waves are a *****. with your car the rear triangles for the back doors and the rear window you will need a hairdryer or a heatgun and take your time. if you use strip tint. good luck...it never looks as good as a full sheet cut and applied right
