Tint your own windows?

Whose tinted their own windows before? How'd it turn out? Was it hard? Just tinted my taillights with pre cut tint and it went on fairly easily just wondering if pre cut tint for the mustang windows would be the same

I dont know about nich, but Nick does! A month straight without 1 day off is not healthy for anyone. We'll talk more in Dr.A's thread!

The side windows are easy, back window has to either be done in multiple strips or heat shrunk to the shape of the window since its curved both side to side and top to bottom, did the sides myself and paid $80 for my back window

Did you dip your faux gas cap? If so how does it look? Any bubbles or scratches or anything? How hard was it?

Dip, looks good, no bubbles or scratches. Super easy. It actually was the first thing I ever dipped. It's been on for over a year now. I can bring a can up if you want me to.
