Default Has anyone tinted the hardtop window?

I've tried it twice, but cannot get the fingers out when doing it in a one piece fashion. I'm I just an impatient bitch, or do you have to do it in strips? The side windows are a breeze. They take a few minutes to do (longer to rip the tint off when the state trooper doesn't like it). I don't believe in taking my cars to a "pro" to do anymore. If you can install a soft top into one of these cars, a little bit of window tint should be no issue............. I HATE SOFT TOP INSTALLs!!!!

Input?

I tinted my own windows too but I would never try to do the hardtop window myself.

fork out the $40+ bucks and have a pro do it right
