DIY Tinting - post fit, thoughts?
#1
Should I pay £170 and have someone else do it properly or will I get the rear window right?

Anyone done this and 1-2yrs on its still 100% wrinkle free?

Even a little crinkle makes your car look low rent doesn't it?

I had mine done professionally. 160 quid for all the rear windows. Worth the money as it's an excellent job.

I have seen diy attempts by people who are normally handy types and that convinced me not to bother. They wasted 40 quid on tint and many hours putting it on then ripping it out!

Treat the film as a water transfer and use soapy water laid on the glass first with a roller to push bubbles out.

I did a friends VW a couple of years back and still good ..........................

£170 is a bit too much ,I paid £130 to have limo tints fitted from b pillar back,
another company quoted £110 but there were no pics of cars they had done on there website.so I think max should be no more than £140.
