Ext Cab Windows

When you remove the small side windows on the ext cab part of trucks such as the 97 -99 Silverado's, what is the best way to get a nice round hole cut out for the holes in the glass where the mounts go?

In the past I have shaved them will a round fine file. Heat really well to help the film dry enough. I have let them sit while i finish the vehicles other windows and then installed the glass. This keeps the film from "twisting" creating a bubble. Not hard to fix though.

I make the customer feel guilty for bringing me some piece of turd like that and tell them Ill do it the easy way so it wont be THAT big of a problem for my day.

then I proceed to do the little slit to fit it around the hardware without taking anything out and gap it real big... go pound sand, I say. Especially the curved ones, junk.

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
