yeah. Doors are very curved. I like to let it dry good before putting the panels back on. the fronts are tight, it's easier to get it on with the windows down anyways.

you can pop the panels and then hang'em with "s" hooks without unclipping the window switches and door latch cables cant you?

I had two 09's this month. Typically I'm not a panel puller and when I tried to pull the panels on the first one I got scared at how hard I was pulling so I used the funnel method previously explained. It came out alright but took some work. The second one showed up and I was determined to get the panels off. Let me tell you those are no joke hard to pull off. It took about 5 minutes for the first one and by the second one I was a pro at right about two minutes.
I love this site sharing ideas you guys saved me so much time and aggravation.

I do about one a week. When you have some practice it's less than a minute a piece, and well worth it.

New guy here. I'm going to be doing one of these in a couple weeks. I know the windows are very curvy. An tips for getting the tint to lay down on them and reducing fingers on the sides? I"m assuming you will be shrinking them, but is it like a better way or things to look for when doing them?

Any help is appreciated.

Shrink it normal like any other side window. It's no where as bad as a vette to shrink. The secret it pulling the door panel it's all down hill from there.

I practiced on one window really quick and had a bunch of fingers on the sides. Maybe I just didn't shrink it enough??? Thanks.

I had one panel nearly off once, but the panel seemed to be hung up somewhere like 6 inches below the tweeter on the inside so I said fudge it. I didnt want to chance breaking anything.

There is a little post there, you just have to pull it out a little further. When you put it on you have to line that post up with the hole it goes in, a little tricky, I just lay on the ground and reach my arm up there and put it in the hole.
