    Hello, im gonna tint the windows of my car, or well.. the rear windows since window tint on the front is illegal here. So my question is.. what tools did u guys use when u tinted the rear window? so the the defroster lines dont get damaged. On the sides i will use a normal plastic scrape or a credit card with some tape on it. Can i use the same on the rear window?

    I tinted few of my cars when i was younger. Now i would pay 300€ happily for some pro shop to do it. I hate doing tinting.

    But plastic scrape is fine for back window, just be gentle with it and dont use edge against heating elements.
