If you go somewhere they will charge about 120. Thats what mine cost. Tryed to do it myself one time on a friends jeep and it turned out like shit. The adheasive bubbled up the sheets and it was bad. If I where you I would take it somewhere. Just my opinion.

First off, don't spray it. it would look terrible. 2nd off, if you're just putting it on your back window, you don't need precut stuff, It shouldn't be too hard to do. don't buy the installation kit. Cause i'm no pro, but you only need a squeegee and some windex to do it i believe. haha.

ok thanks for the advice about the installation kit. i am just gonna try and buy the pre cut kit because it is around the same price as the roll and i dont have to worry about the dimensions

Walmart and autozone sell the install kits. it comes with pretty much everything you need. Get that. Its was like 10 or 12 bucks. Worth it. it came with the fluid, squeegee, knife, and a micro fiber cloth IIRC. It is a BITCH to install and dont get your hopes up on it being perfect the first time. i tinted my entire truck 3 different times before i got it to it is now and it still isnt perfect but its ok. Still have bubbles and such. Not to bad and it works.

That install kit is a joke, all you need is a razor knife and the fluid that comes in the kit is nothing but soap and water, you can mix soap and water up by yourself, thats what they use if you were to take it somewhere. But tinting a back window is really easy just make sure you dont get crappy tint, and dont use windex to clean it because it will ruin the tint. By some glass cleaner that doesnt have vinegar in it and says that it is safe for tinted windows.
