Yea I don't know that I would try to do it myself. But I really want my front windows tinted but I have a soft top does anybody know if that is even possible and if it isnt is there somewhere that I can buy them?
The bigger, the bader, the louder, the better end of story!!
Just a tip I noticed when I had mine done professionally. Once you cut it to the right size, use a heat gun carefully to get the tint to follow the curve of the window. Just my .02.

I did mine on the back windaow of my tj, I had the top off and it was easier. if you have no patience, dont try it. I did one window twice. Doesnt look too bad, but still not profesional. Take your time, if you dont like it, rip it off, start over or have someone else do it. But give it a try anyway.
If we knew what we were doing it woulnt be called research
There are no rules here, were trying to accomplish something.

Its a miserable, miserable job especially on the back windows and hatch. Mine turned out good but thats an hour and a half of my life gone to the wind. I should of just had a shop do it
if you're not good on doing it by yourself, then look for some pro to do it. but there's a lot of kits out there.. it just depends on your budget.

I used to do tint, it takes patience and a lot of ruined film. You can use a mixture of soap and water or alcohol and water to reduce the tackiness. Get a good squeegee. I like the turbo yellow ones http://www.tintsupply.com/tinting-squeegees.htm Dont be afraid to get the tint too wet either. Buy a roll if its your first time and intent to learn. You will probably screw up a few times. Also remove window felts so you can tint past that and not have to worry bout peeling. Start on something easy like a back window. Good luck
