Window tint

Going to be installing window tint on my jeep and was wondering for anyone who has done it. Was it easier to pull the windows all the way out of the car to do it or leave them in and take off the door panel.

Mods if this is wrong forum please move it. I couldn't really find a good thread to put it in.

I tint windows professionally. I always leave the glass in the vehicle. However, I would suggest that you pull the door panels. It will make life easier! Remember, the prep work. Use a new razor blade to scrape the whole window. Up and down then left to right. Also, clean out the felt jams very well, a lot of dust ( contamination) likes to hide in there. Not sure where your getting your film from but make sure it carries a life time warranty or it will prob. Fade and turn blue within a year. Lastly, instead of hand cutting the pattern yourself, try to find some precut material. If you cannot find it pm me and we can work something out. I precut all of the vehicles I tint with my plotter. Makes life easier. Good luck!!

Ok good! 2 ply is usually a higher end film. Good luck. If you run into problems, pm me with your number and hopefully I can walk you through it.

Yea i got some precut tint for like 25 dollars for every window and that was cheaper then buying individual rolls and cutting them myself. I have yet to put it on yet. How's did yours come out?

Vacuum out the car real good, then do it on a rainy day. Less dust on a rainy day.
