Question Anyone use pre-cut tint?

Before the new wall gets bolted in place, it would be nice to get the back window tinted. I really don't feel like doing it myself, but i noticed you can buy pre-cut tint kits on ebay. Anyone have experience?

most pre cut junk on ebay is junk, theres a guy local to me that sells a whole car kit on ebay for $15-20 but its about as good as dyed tissue paper if ya gotta go that route get something good. i think there some pre cut pre shrunk kits but i cant vouche for the acutal fit quality otherwise your gonna be busting out the heat gun and shrinking it yourself.

Hmmm. Thanks for the advice, I don't mind a little work, but i'f I'm going to have to shrink it I might as well cut it out myself. I still might give the pre-cut stuff a try though, as it's pretty darn cheap.

I grabbed a precut kit off ebay for my focus little over 2 years ago and it has held up fine. Im sure is a toss up though from seller to seller if u get a good kit or not.

look at the sellers feedback. it makes a difference.

I have not seen tint which was so crappy it wasn't worth buying.

If they are selling premium tint, they will say so in the listing.

"Premium" doesn't mean it will be easier to use, it just means it's better tint.

look into the curvature of your windows. if it's for the neon, I suggest getting it professionally tinted. I've done them before and I would prefer to pay someone to tint the back window rather than doing it myself.

OR, you can get flat black latex paint and just paint the windows [FROM THE INSIDE!] {if they can not be seen through anyway}
don't worry, the glass makes it look glossy from the outside.

I find it best to use some soapy water in a squirt gun to set the tint. Peel n stick it then heat up the outside of the window with a blow torch while squeegeeing out the water.

When I was tinting, I would do that back glass for $60 with Advantage lifetime color fade warranty film.
