Go to a shop! Walmart tint and others will come off so easily and looks bubily and tacky. Unless you know a friend that knows exactly what to do, just go to a shop. It will take them around 2-3 hours to do a good job. I paid 150 for my tint and got the 5 year warranty with it. One year later it looks good as new still.

our side windows are very easy to tint because they have basically no curve, but yeah, the back one would suck

and i think they pull apart the back seat for some reason. I had mine done 2 years ago for $250. Lifetime warranty i believe.
