I recently saw precut tint for our cars on ebay. Search the ebay forum for the thread.

yeah, window tinting is a bastard. the doors arent quite so bad, bust anything with a slope to it, hell no. id rather pay to get it done right by someone else that has to fix it free if it comes out crappy, rather than try it again myself.

You should be able to find a shop that will do the fronts. There is one I know of that told me $250 for all 5 windows. They just might not put any reference to the front windows on your receipt, but they should still honor any warranty for the tint. Thats how they did my friend'*.

Hardest thing about tinting is on the curved surfaces and not getting bubbles.

well i think i might have found someone to do them for cheap, not sure yet...
he can't do the back window so i went to a shop to get a quote on that... 100 - 125 (basicly he said its gonna be a pain in his a$$)
I asked him if i could do anything to make it easier like taking out the back window piece (don't know the technical name) and i have heard of people here taking out the back seat too. So my question is how do you take out the back window thing (3rd brakelight included) and is it nessecary to remove the back seat and if so how. Thanks

remove the rear bottom seat by 2 bolts towards the front
remove the rear upper seat by 2 bolts that hold the seat belts on, and then the top unclips if you pull up...
then there are like 3 plastic push in connectors that need to come out and the back dash will slide out and then a few bolts that hold down the 3rd brake light

Wow, the place here charges by how many doors you have, whether it'* a Geo Metro 4 door, or my tank, it'll always be $160.
