I did all of the windows, I was just asking about the defrost wire lines on the back window. I got my tint from Tint Masters in Fargo, ND it came pre-cut and it was simple to do. I have her blacked out in the back with 5% light in and about 30% in the front. I hope the chiefs leave me alone. I also did the front Windshield with 85% tint. It looks awesome, and it doesnt really look like it has tint on it but it keeps most of the heat off the leather when the Sun is blasting down. I didnt want to do it until the manager of tint masters showed me his blacked out Escalade. He had 50% on his windshield Thanks for your guys input

I have 15% all the way around, as you can tell by my sig. I'm debating if I wanna put 70% or 50% on the windshield.

I had 5% all the way around before, I'll never go that dark again. It was more annoying than anything having to roll down the window to park in my own driveway.

mine is bubbling just a tiny bit but you cant tell unless you are cleaning the window. my tint was also done by the first owner in 2002 though so im cutting it some slack lol.

when i put my decals on the back window I got a few bubbles and i just poked a tiny hole with an exacto knife and smoothed it out, youd never know i did that.. I bet you could do the same with tint without noticing anything since its such a tiny hole.
