Installing Car Window Tint - Page 2
Remove the rear deck, and or 3rd brake light IF NEEDED. You will appreciate it when you're in there trying to lay a long piece of window film without touching anything but the clean glass, its not that easy and if the felt from the rear deck is against the glass, the film will be difficult to reach and squeegee completely. Most cars only need to have the brake light removed.
One way to pre-cut the film for the roll up windows is on the window itself, placing the window film on the outside, with the liner side facing up, the film can be trimmed to the approximate shape of the window, this method is o.k. but there is a way to get a much more accurate shape to the film using freezer paper patterns and without using blades on the car glass. To avoid sloppy cuts and creasing, I like to use Reynolds plastic coated freezer paper to make a pattern for rollup windows.
Cut a piece of the paper about an inch larger than the window
Make several cuts along the sides of the paper, about an inch long and about 5 per side, this is so the paper will lay flat when you tuck the edges into the frame. Spray the outside of the fully rolled up window with unsoapy water.
Lay the paper over the glass plastic side down and smooth it out with a hard card.
Be sure to keep the paper side of the plastic coated paper dry. Trace the edges where you want the edge of your film to be onto the paper with a hard card and draw them in with a sharp pencil.
