the rear window isnt that hard, unless its your first time. gotta make sure those lines are perfect or you're gonna see the seams. window tinting places will do 1 window for u without a problem.

A good tint shop won't care if you have just the rear done. They'll only waranty the rear, obviously.

If you owned a third gen car, (I know you don't) it might be a little different. The 3G rear window is supposedly one of the tougher assignments in the tint world.

I didn't do my windows, but the rear is a one piece tint job. What are you doing so far as tint percentage?

I thought bout using one peice but the film i bought isnt big enough (width wise) for my window and idk where i can get a peice that is big enough thats y i was asking bout the strips. idk im debating whether or not to try myself of just take it in for the rear. im looking at like what 50-80 bucks for the back or more?

Hell, my car was $100 for the front, rear, quarter, and back windows. On should be in the area of $30-40.
