I've never seen anyone remove the glass just to tint the glass??
I've tinted cars for 2 yrs after high school and we never removed the windows.


But the tracks that move the windows up and down should have bolts that hold the glass.

Yeah I figured it out. Just removed the panels but left the glass in.

Check it out.

Glad to see this thread and a couple of guys who know what there doing. Don't know what happened to my drivers side window on my 2001 Tacoma but it's a mess! It came with the tint on it but the tint stuff has started peeling or something. All the other windows look perfect! How can I remove this old stuff so I can re-do it? how did you tint yours.?Where did you buy the stuff to do it? It really looks great! Mike

Personally Id have a shop do it. You shouldnt have to pull panels or glass.

I had a shop in Albuquerque do mine, it came out awesome. The tint comes up very close to the edge of the glass, unlike other shops where theres a big gap. Id have to dig out the receipts, but they are a member of a particular tint shop chain that is throughout the US. They guarantee it, so if I have a problem with it up here in VT I can just go to a local shop (that is also a member) and have it fixed.

At first there was just a sliver on the rear window that was allowing the sun to shine through. I went back to see what they could do. They could have have fixed it with a black tint pen, but they pulled the film off and redid that section. Very professional. I want to say their name is Best Auto Tinting, I'll double check if anybody is around the Alb area and is interested.
