I also like to go old school and wet shrink that saturn backglass. haven't done one in a year or so. on the cutlass back glass, that piece is worth about two complete tint jobs. the client will pay dearly if I mess with it $$$.

I recently did one of these, why, I don't know, but I did charge a bunch extra. Anyway, I did the back in 1 piece using the soap shrink method, and by shrinking mostly in the area with the circle, I was able to make it work. When done shrinking, it was still wrinkly, and I really had to work it hard to make it lay down, but the results were awesome.1pcsaturnshrink.gif

Thats the area I concentrate the fingers on, and where most of the shrinking takes place. The EASIEST way to do that car is in one peece. Generally, a little heat is needed to persuade the film to stick at the corners/sides, Bit other than that, Piece 'o cake!!! :beer

I've done a few of these. Unfortunately I did not own the shop then so I didn't get paid any extra. What I did was a soap shrink and I used auto tape to stretch the film. Shrank it as good as I could then put in and cut a couple of relief lines and heated the p1ss out of the corners to get it to stick. They all turned out great.
