I tinted my car...and I mean that literally

So I finally stepped up to the plate and decided to get my tint done. A friend of mine owns a tint/alarm shop and a few weeks ago when I was there watching I said "tinting looks easy" and I was presented with a challenge.

If I could tint my own windows and have them come out presentable I wouldn't have to pay for the job. If I did them and they came out rough, I would pay $30 in material cost. Tint used was SunTek 35%. In the end after lots of yelling and mistakes, I handed over $30. So far the sides are finished, I will be back to do the rear tomorrow. The tint looks decent to me, but there are some rough edges and things that you have to look for. Overall for $30 I think it's pretty decent work considering I've never tinted a car before. Tint was hand-cut for extra precision

Rear is going to be a PITA
