Back Glass on a 95 and Impala SS.

Big back glass but not really that bad. When I have done those, I don't shrink the bottom part, let it flip up and push the fingers towards the top and just shrink the top. When cutting the patter, cut it longer than normal towards the bottom. When installing the film, you will basically have to stretch the film on the bottom to lock it down. I have found it works better to do the bottom first and work your way towards the top. You will probably want to remove the rear deck, most of the time the carpet comes up about an inch or so from the bottom. To remove the rear deck you will have to pull the upper and lower rear seats and also remove the rear sail panels and 3rd brake light. Time consuming, but easy once you get the hang of it.

Okay so dont shrink bottom. Got it. So u anchor right where the reverse curve stops then and it where its a "normal " windshield. Lol. Ya. The top had few fingers but i anchored right in the middle and i was like "what"? Lol. I already got the deck out. I just popped the seat belt covers and third I have done a lot of auto work that way and figd out other ways for stuff like that.

Dakota. I'm glad to see you talking a tough one right out of the gate. :thumb

I would like to say, don't be upset if you don't get it on the first try. Learn from the mess up. Sometimes if if I have a tough backglass, and I crease it or mess it up somehow, I will still finish it so I will know ALL of what to look for on the next try.

That being said, you should be able to do this, but the curves at the bottom might try to pop off the glass during install(due to the stretch). It will lay down if you have your slip solution right. Too much soap, and it will pop off. If it does, you might want to lessen the amount of soap a little on the next install.

Be patient and careful when you are making the stretch lay down during install. Good luck. :thumb

I will had to Bhams post. If for some reason the bottom part of the film doesn't want to lay because of maybe be too much soap in your slip, heat up the glass. When doing so, don't put direct heat over the area you want the film to stick, but right below it and allow the heat to slowly work its way up and hammer it down with either a side swiper or titan.
