What is a good temp to start applying the tint when you are working out side?I live in Tennessee and it is around 90 degrees today.

Don't do it below 40 degrees or so. One time I turned around and the tint fell off a window. =( Now I have a 100,000 BTU space heater. =)

When it's hot then tinting can be a PITA if you're in direct sunlight.

in direct sunlight you are going to have less "working time" with the film. might also get hot spots, spots that sticks more than the rest of teh film. As the temp changes you will need to alter your SLIP soultion so that it is not too slippy and not too tacky. Hot= more slip needed

Cold =less slip needed.
