  1. 1

    Lay the mirror tint film over the window on the outside of the car to create a template. Carefully trace the window in the film with a razor blade. Repeat this process with each window to be tinted, creating one section for each window.

  2. 2

    Create a soap mixture using one part dish soap to two parts of water in the spray bottle and spray it over the inside of the window to clean the surface. Remove dirt and excess liquid with a squeegee.

  3. 3

    Gently press the film over the interior of the window rubbing from the centre towards all outer edges of the window with your hand. Gently work out the air bubbles under the film and completely soak the film with soap mix before continuing.

  4. 4

    Apply heat to the tint film using the blow dryer. Hold the blow dryer 6 to 12 inches from the window, and gently work the air bubbles from under the surface using the plastic card. Work from the centre of the window towards the top and sides of the window.

  5. 5

    Use the bone tool to lift the window liner along the bottom edge of the window, and tuck the film below the liner with the plastic card. Reapply heat to the bottom of the window and continue to rub the film towards the bottom edge with the plastic card.

  6. 6

    Repeat this process until every desired window is tinted.
