I heard that there is no reason to have a eight of edge on top of windows.are you putting the film to the top then fileing it with a fine emory board to make it look like factory?

If you are really good at cutting the edge, you can avoiding filing or shaving and get within 1/64th-1/32nd inch from the glass edge with the installed film. :mrgreen:

I micro edge everything, I scoot my film up to the edge as close as I can without any overhang.

fileing looks cool though, its just alittle more work and time.

lost of guys here file their windows, but I think the majority stick with the 1/8th to 1/16th gap.

after the cut, just scoot the film around till you have about a 1/32 gap. 1/16 MAX, more than 1/16 isn't close enough. I've only had one customer ever complain about it not being close enough. I told him I would file them down for an extra $10 a window. he left with a 1/32 gap. I own a tinting facility, not a nail salon.

My favorite is when you get the R&R's in that the previous installer didn't even roll the window down on. Just slapped the film on and cut around the edge of the window and called it good. :bingo
