Personally I'd take it to a reputable shop, get a warranty and a GOOD film and only be out a couple hundred bucks.

You'd have to be crazy to attempt the rear on your own

if you have a REALLY CLEAN place to do it and yo have mastered the Window sticks lol
You might have a chance of doing a good job your self

The hardest window is the back one.

our side windows are pretty flat. so there sorta easy to do.
reason why i say really clean pplace is that ANY little dirt or dust that get son the window will show as a bubble when you put the tint on.

some of us dont have a couple hundred bucks.. but i got plenty of smarts and know how with a real strong ( i can do it all ) ego... im just curios on the quality of the tint as getting the job done is nothing as i done all me garage and proch windows and entry doors with the privacy film from ( gila) the window tint company.. and its a breeze to get it on.. all looks professionaly done and perfect...

My dad used to do this stuff for a living. Generally speaking, those films tend to be very low quality. They peel, turn purple, bubble and all kinds of stuff like that. Check the warranty on the film that you are going to purchase. Otherwise save the money to get a pro to do it. It may cost you more upfront, but you can be sure that you won't have to do it again, because of low quality materials.
