Both my 1/4 glass and rear window were tinted when I got the car and were done in 2 pieces each.

I had mine done as well, but they are actually done in one piece. I've never applied tint, but I know that these windows look to require a good bit of luck, patience and skill. Maybe, look to see if there is a toll available to press it into tight corners.

To be honest man, I'd have a someone who is in the business do it. It's worth the extra money and the warranty you get from them is a plus.

Got all mine done for 150$ I noticed when he had to get into tight corners, he used a putty knife covered with a soft cloth and pressed in those corners, it came out great!

I had 5% on the back in my last Probe and on my Neon, while it is cool in the daytime, at night, you cannot see a damned thing behind you. It gets downright scary if there are no streetlights and cars around! I could not do that again!
