    I can see out my rear window pretty well with it being tint film that is one way color. Still at night I can't see worth a crap when backing up. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I was going to just tint it with regular limo tint, but have alot of little scratches in the glass.... The vinal window graphic are aplied to the exterior of the window..

    If I could find some good tint at a good price I would buy it and do it myself.... All my tinter freinds aren't around anymore.

    Is that wrinkles in your rear tint? To the right of the bow tie....

    the full stick on graphics do make it very hard to see out of the window.. especially on overcast days, and nearly impossible at night.. i hate driving customers trucks with those damned things.. makes it a bitch just to get out of a bay..

    I normally don't use the rear view mirror that much..... I use the side mirrors more than anything else.... I've drivin' to many Trucks that was boxed or didn't have any rear window.....

    C'moe, The shop that did mine would like to start making window tint "kits" in which they pre cut the film and mail it to you. They can do any kind of custom artwork that you want like they did with my rear window.
    As for your scratched window... I had the same prbolem and just bought a new rear window and new window channel weather striping, that is the way to do it if you want your tint to look good and last.
