turn your def on immediatly, it actually helps the film dry out, when its cold I always turn on the def even while tinting the car.

The only thing you should not do is roll down your windows for a couple of days.

:thumb hope that helps

I always tell people not to use it for a couple of days.

I dont know why , I think I heard it from another tinter.

I had a guy come back with it bubbled on heater lines once and ever since then I tell people to leave it a couple of days.

depends on where you live (climate wise) and the film installed, I have no problem with using them, as I said when it is cold outside I turn them on while tinting the vehicle, IMO the heat doesn't cause the bubbling as refered to by CT it is caused by high def lines (extra thick off the glass) but that is my opinion.

If your tinter told you not to turn on the defroster then don't turn it on :thumb

I turn 'em on after tinting the car. It's totally cold here now, so I also let the car run with the heat and defroster on full blast for awhile after tinting to aid in drying. The spikes are caused by both thick defroster lines and a poor shrink job... not the heat from the defroster.
