Default Opinions requested on 'professional' tint job.

Hi all, just got my windows tinted on my new truck. I'm not too happy with the job they did, but I'm **extremely** picky, so let me know what you think...

Uneven cut - wraps onto window frame, and bubbles:



Gap lets light through:



Another shot of the gap:



Uneven cut line and more bubbles:



Another uneven cut wrapping onto window frame:



Poor trimming:



Edited pic to show crooked cut line:

You're not being picky at all. Those dudes are fired! The "trim work" or a lack thereof, is reason enough to put feet in their a$$es.
This is a perfect example of why you shouldn't work while you are stoned

Take that back to them man. That is a god awful job and there is no way that is professional work. When I get my cars done, and I'm not happy I make them do it over til its done right. There is no excuse for sloppy shitty work like that

Haha - thanks for all the quick, no-holds-barred responses.

The tint is only 1 day old, but I don't think any amount of curing can fix it.

I will definitely take it back to them, but I don't know if they are capable of doing a better job. They advertise computer cut tint that perfectly fits your vehicle, but from what I overheard, they didn't have a pattern for the sliding rear window configuration. They are obviously out of practice at doing tint the old-fashioned way.

id say get ur money back like i said earlier and take it someplace else.


when my bedliner started peeling off i demanded from both the company and the dealer that the whole part of it be done (not the whole bed though) instead of just the problem area. with a lttle presure they will do it w.o any issues. esp with lifetime warranties! which u probablly dont have

Ebay sells precut tint. I did my front windows for 15$ and 10 minutes. I did it 6 months ago and it still looks great.

The bubbles are normal, they will eventually evaporate just park it in the sun, but yeah the cut job sucks, find somebody elso to do it.
