Wipe the top edge and squeegee the window angling your squeegee down.

Spray down the edges of the rubber and across the bottom.

Remove the backing sheet from the tint film and wet the film.

Apply to the glass lining up the top edge leaving a 1mm gap.

Squeegee the tint film out.

Now cut the excess film from around the edges using a 1mm spacer and a small Stanly knife.

Use a rag and a hard card to push the water from the remaining edges of the film.

It is quite normal for the film to have moisture in it or a hazy appearance for approximately 2 to 4 weeks.
