I had my windows tinted a week ago at a very reputable place. I rolled them down for the first time today and then noticed that the bottom edge was peeling up in a few places. I'm bringing it back but was wondering that since our windows move up and down a little when you open and close the door, is this going to keep happening b/c it can't dry correctly with all that movement. They told me it wouldn't happen but yet here it is. Any tips?

I would ask them to see if they could tuck in the tint a bit further (make it go lower). That might help, but I'm not sure.

I got a similar problem with my passenger side -- only it's not peeling, it's small bubbles "below" the window drop line. Only been less than a week since I had it done though... and the sun hasn't been shining that much lately. I'm gonna give it another week to fully dry and evaporate, but if the bubbles are still there, I'm having my shop re-do it. Fortunately, the driver side (and all others) are fine.

As for peeling, I don't think waiting is necessary. Have 'em re-do or fix it. How's your driver side?

The G is my fourth car with the auto sealing on windows and all have them have been tinted. None of them have had a problem with tinting. My only recommendation is to wait 3 full days before rolling down windows after getting it re-tinted. Also, the first time you roll them down, roll them down fully, then roll them up.

Good luck.

sup tnbooo, sounds to me like you got a very bad tint job. Where do you live? I'm from NY but drove an hour and a half to this place in Union, NJ only because pretty much ALL the ppl I know who beautiful tint jobs down here recommended that place. I had mine done in about 3 hours. Told me NOT TO ROLL DOWN THE WINDOW FOR AT LEAST 3 DAYS... Followed directions and my tint has been beautiful since then. You sure you ain't roll down your windows within that 3 day period?? One of my other friends who had his done there 6 years ago still doesn't have bubbles or peeling with his tint. There website is tropictint.com. I had to book 2 weeks in advance for a weekday. Hope this helps man.

Thanks for the tips. I live in Louisiana and brought it to the best one around my area. They must have just done a crappy job. My passenger has a few bubbles that don't seem to be evaporating and the driver is the one peeling at the bottom. I'm bringing it back. I waited 6 days to roll down the windows and will wait the same next time.

Someone told me that on car with the auto seal, you can take a piece of duct tape and put it over the little button on the door frame to keep the window from moving up/down when opened or closed. This may work - you can test it by pushing the botton in with your finger, you'll see the window go up.

Anyway - even with the slight movement, i don't think it should be a problem - get your $$ back and go somewhere else!!!d

Had mine done and was told not to open the windows for three days as well. The small open/close movement when you open the doors did not affect the tint either. I brought this to their attention and they said that small movement shouldn't be a problem. Sounds like they didn't apply the tint far enough below the door panel.

As for water bubbles, I had them and after for weeks, they're almost gone (had a big one on the passenger side). They will dry out over time.
