Tinting Question

I am wanting to tint my driver and passenger windows. I have tried before and it is a pain. Is the easiest way to just remove the glass and do it that way. I know it is pretty simple to get the glass out and then replace the rivet with a bolt. Has anyone done this and if so can you give me some feedback on it. Thanks

With the panels off, you can pull the glass as you mention....


If you've got the interior panel off you can work the tint easily (just precut the film) roll the window down a bit to get the top edge and clear any of the water (I usually get it all clear for a few inches down, so you can roll the window back up into the felt door seals)....

The bottom is a cinch wih the interior panel off...

If you skip pulling the panel and book-fold your film as you install, you can work the top (as above) and if you get the glass/film wet enough (small, fine spray) sliding the lower edge under the bottom felt is easy enough using a bondo-spatula or similar to get you alittle room ... Just sayin.

but you can still do everything said above with the panel on. OR find someone that will do it for you that has exp. with it. i got a family friend to do mine (been doin my parents cars for the last 10yrs or so), both windows (20%) and the windshield strip for 50$, took 25min.
