window tinting

im gonna order precut window tint for my truck, i can get all the windows pretty cheap, and then i was gonna tint my own windows, how hard is this, ive been told that its hard but anyone can do it as long as you take your time and the main thing is to work all the bubbles out, the local shop around here wants almost 250 bucks to do my truck which is a supercab, thats why i wanna do it myself..

I paid 200 for my CC.

I have used the cheap stuff at napa and its really not that hard, but the tint sucks and it starts to bubble the day after and it doesnt stick for schit. I bet if its good quality tint it wont be hard, some instructions say that you should use baby shampoo but i would just buy the applicator spray and use that. I used an auto body bondo spreader to smooth it out, plastic and rubber ones work good so they dont tear the tint, if you wet the schit out of the tint and the window, and be sure everything is super super clean it should be easy to get the bubbles out. Use a razor blade to clean the window. The tint should have some instructions with it so just follow that.

Most places around here have a tint cutter, so buying pre-cut does you no good, my neck of the woods there arent alot of options for tint and colorado tint laws are pretty strict these days so getting 5% is hard

Cash money always helps
