Porsche 944

My luck ran out, never had to tint one of these b**ch cars, till today. Took me 2 hours for the back window, but got it in one piece. Relief cuts from hell though! Still hoping I never have to do the Olds Cutlass Supreme 4 dr.

Olds Cutlass Supreme 4 dr. is a cake-walk compared to the 944. Wish I could offer some advice on it. Oh, I can........Charge up the :ahole for them.

Well, I kinda cheated a little....but it worked awesome, the guy loved it! It looked like it had been tinted before, was an old piece of crap. The paint around the edges was all breaking down, in bad shape. So.....I put 3/4 inch black striping tape all the way around the glass, on the inside. That's probably why I was able to 1 piece it. When I was done I said I won't touch another for under $250 for the back alone. Charged $250 for the whole thing. TOO CHEAP! See, I am not that great of a tinter after all! Just know when to pull the striping tape out!

Pierce, I hear ya, its just kinda personal for me. I like to push myself, just to see if I can do it. As it is, I pulled in $1200 today on my own today in cars alone, from 8:30 to 5:00, figure thats ok profit wise. As far as getting away with a 3 piecer on a porsche, sure I can, but I did it in one for myself, not really the customer.
