You can do your own and do just has good has they do. just use plenty off soapy water between the glass and tint. Just apply the right percentage that is reqired by law. tehn trim to window. use a stiff plastic wiper or credit card works great. Start from the center and work out to the edge getting all bubbles out even the smallest one. if you have one that doasn't come out take a sewing neddle poke it to remove the bubble.

If you have patients and don't mind tedious work then it is worth doing it yourself. It's pretty expensive depending on what type of vehicle you are having it done to, I've done a few of my own vehicles myself and it isn't too bad.

Not really. We charge around $200 with a lifetime warranty.

do it yourself its not that bad unless you have a big back window. Just take your time and make sure to have a sharp razor blade.

So what you all are saying is that none of you are professional window tinters?

Still looking.

Bump.

im not sure how far away coldwater is from you but Mr. Tunes in coldwater could do it for you or Mr. tunes in Jackson, we also have a zeibart and Auto Images in Jackson could do it as well. If you do attempt it yourself they sell a pre cut kit on ebay for just about any make and model.

Mr. tunes in jackson- 517-783-9900

Ripoff.

A number of people here have seen my vehicles. Detail Express in Keego Harbor. Obviously useless for the Battle Creek peeps.

Found one in Kalamazoo. $170 for 5 windows. Seems reasonable.
