Realise that should get a professional to do it but cant afford it right now
Got pre cut window tints for x mas rear kit what is the ideal thing to use to get it right without bubbling etc thinking a roller sponge roller or sponge?
Its just that when tried it last time the damn film is so eager to stick anyway it wants does the window need sprayed with a mixture of washing up liquid and water to get perfect placment?>
What not to do etc etc

Ive heard people using a spray bottle with soap and water to adjust it, then when it dries it should stick.

Yeah you'll also need a plastic "spreader" to apply it (getting all the air bubbles out).

You could use a credit card if need be but you might want something that has more surface area

Good Luck!

I don't know about using a credit card, the pros use a more flexible 'scraper' looking device to press out the bubbles.

I'm going to be honest about doing personal installs on window tint, 99% of the time it ends up looking like crap. Even if it looks decent at first, rarely does it last more than a few months before problems start happening.

Not that I'm trying to be a downer, but that is the reality of the situation. You could be that 1% that does an excellent job and uses the right material and has a beautiful tint that lasts for several years.
