    Default Tinted my windows

    Just finished tinting my rear windows - I bought one of them pre cut kits in dark smoke.

    Looks good quite impressed with it, not a perfect finish -but looks ok.

    Struggled with the edge of the rear screen where the bonding stuff is.

    Will post some pics later

    I take my hat off to you for attempting that one. Years ago i had a Audi and i wanted to tint the windows so i took the side windows out and put the tints on and what a perfect job it was until i put the glass back in and caught two of them putting them back in so i ripped them all out and never bothered again.

    For all rear windows it took me about 2 hours,

    There are a couple of bubbles under it, also the join on rear screen is sometimes visable - but Iam happy with it.
