    Default Tinted my front 2 widows

    I ordered the precut 20% off of Ebay from GT-dreams , did all of the preparation and it turned out great! Matches the rear windows perfect! Not bad for $19.98 and free shipping

    looks good. I dont trust myself to do that type of job. Id end up with a permanent finger print in the tint or bubbles or something. somethings I just let the pros do.

    Step by step - The tint comes pre-cut to your order and you have to tell them what % tint that you want. I got 20%. Clean your window with alcohol and the edge of a razor blade , make sure you have every little peice of trash gone or it WILL show up. Example(paper towels) leave tiny pieces behind.Bend the rubber piece at the bottom of your window down with a flat screwdriver. Make sure that you mix water with a little baby shampoo in a spray bottle ,this will make the whole process , soak your hands so fingerprints don't show up , soak the tint as you pull it away from the plastic ,this is very important ,it keeps the tint from rolling up and sticking together. Have your window rolled down about an inch and have it PPRESOAKED , place the tint to the window (the more water/shampoo the easier to move it around) .Line up the tint with the top of your window to about 1/8 of and inch , or closer ,just don't go over the window and check the front and back .you can ease it around with the water under it. When you get it right, start in the middle with something flat and soft (Credit cards will scratch the tint!) I used my bank card wrapped in a small cloth , but you really need a rubber applicator from Wal-Mart. Work the bubbles out from the middle outwards in all directions , making sure to cover the entire window. You can look at the outside and see if you've missed any spots , remember ,its not a race take your time and it helps to use a Hair dryer when your done and go around the edges and work your way across the entire window. Rolled mine down after 2 days in the sun. No problems and matches perfect
