I have no patience for window tint. I'm sure you can pull the side windows off if you take your time, but that rear hatch will make you homicidal because of how it's curved.

The place that did my tint told me to wait 3 days in warm weather or a week in cold weather before rolling the windowns down. Luckily I put my car up for the winter the next day, so I didn't even touch the car for a few months.

Tinting is fairly simple if you have the right tools.

Spray window with water and tint treatment.
place the tint sticky side down on the window.
cut to spec (try not to cut the glass)
squeegie the water out.

On the curved hatch use a heat gun to get the tint to go with the curve.

wait 7 days to roll the window down on cooler days.

(used to work for a tint shop) If you have anymore questions let me know.

meh.. for me its always been a day that ive had to wait.. 24 hours total.. done this one 3 cars btw, and I mean ive rolled down the windows on all of them as soon as the 24 were up because I like to drive without A/C on.

Done this on the Monte, F-150, Camaro, my brother's done it on all of his cars as well.. so i'd wait if it was colder, but not if it was hot.
