Im always tinting windows on something so i thought it would be pretty cool to have a thread with some tips and tricks. Just from what little iv learned its a lot easier than it use to be but im still far from a pro at it. Everyone that has experience with it post up some info on it, stuff like the proper tools to use, differnt ways of doing stuff and something that i need help with is what to spray on the tint, iv been using soap and water but its doesnt seem to work the best.

Well my front ones didnt turn out like i thought they did. From the inside the look flawless but from the out side it looks like its got big bubbles scattered everywhere. It was kinda cool inside and freezing outside do yyall think it was to cold, im hopin maybe the sun will bring them out but i dunno, if not im just gonna tear it back off and try again, im gonna give it a couple weeks though to give the sun a chance to hit it, its not really that bad but i still cant stand it
The bubbles will disapear soon.Being so cold it may take a while.Its normal for bubblues to appear.Did you use a plastis scraper to rub all the wrinkles out .Start from the middle and work out to the ends.

Yeah i used a squeege and i didnt notice the bubble till i got it outside this morning, so im thinking they probably popped up last night while it was sitting in the shop. I read that on the net somewhere, i hope your right, it said on there it could take up to a month for them to come out depending on how much sunlight it got.
Its normal for bubbles to appear.Its the drying process and its normal.Of course dont open your windows while bubbles are present.
