Thats cool, how long has it been on your car? The top of the windows looks like its coming off, might want to retint it.

prolly about an hour a window...including mess ups

i bought 4 rolls of 6.5ft...went through all of em, LOL

if you are going to do it yourself, make sure you get the proper squeege, tinting solution and a hair dryer does wonders

I had mine done yesterday at a local shop. Paid $165.00. They told me the Bonnes were one of the hardest to do. First because of the curve of the rear window...and the door windows are also slightly curved so they have to heat the file to melt/fit the curve. And of course...there are 9 windows to do because of the little wing windows on each door. But now it'* done, and it looks great and is mucho cooler, and it will prolong my leather interior since the UV light and the regular light are reduced greatly.
