Full Answer

Start by checking the inside surfaces of the windows for any dirt or caulking compounds, and clean them as needed to enhance the sticking of the tint. Once the surfaces are clean, fit nylon paper onto the inside of the window, and cut the paper to the shape and size of the window. Spread the tinting film on a flat surface, lay the cut nylon paper over it, and trace and cut the film to the size of the paper. Repeat the process for the remaining windows.

Sprinkle soapy water over the inside of the window, and lay the cut film over the soapy surface, taking care to line up all the corners and curves. Pull back part of the sheet, and spray it with adhesive window solution. To prevent peeling, generously apply the adhesive around the edges, and then smooth the film to eliminate any air bubbles. Pat down the adhesive with a squeegee, and blot away any moisture. Repeat the process for the remaining windows.
