    What is the best way to go about removing my windows out of my doors? I am going to tint them. This is on a 1984 Blazer

    Just dive in:wink1:

    You'll have to remove the widow crank handle & arm rest, then the door panel.

    Look inside and crank up & down so you can see how the window is held. It's easy to do although I usually bugger up a panel retainer (white plastic plugs) so it's a good idea to have a couple new ones handy.

    Take your time and when you have the glass off the track if you stick your tongue out just right it will slide out easier. Think Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes:laugh::laugh::haha::haha:

    I might be wrong but i thought you didn't have to take the windows out to tint them atleast the places around here dont. You just can't crank your window up and down for like 24 hours i think. I may be wrong. Unless you are putting glass in that is already tinted

    Tinting the glass while it is out of the vehicle makes for some really nice results. We took the side and rear windows out of my buddys 91 S10 and tinted them in his garage. They came out really nice.

    Tinting while out is much better. You can cover the entire piece of glass, so you never see an edge, and less chance for peeling later.

    Yep, like bkinzey says, it's pretty straightforward and nothing difficult.
