Yes over all the dots and another 1/8" farther over the black. Just makes it easy for you when u install. When u go to install try to place it as close as u can to where it goes and try not to slide it around. When u slide it u can drag dirt from the black area in and have contam.

Hope it's not an Acura you're tinting...or the like. Where the glass will "grow" on the inside... But, it'll be a learning experience!

Thats was I alway do, unless there less room inside, I'll cut even closer. It seems it reduces the chance of the film curling and looks cleaner.

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.
