    I am looking at getting my windows tinted. Was wondering if anyone had it done and liked the job that the place did. I got my old truck done at Zbart but they did not do such a good job in my opinion. Somewhere near Strongsville would be nice.

    For less than $100, you could buy a 3M product with Lifetime Warranty, and DIY... Isn't that what Tacoma World is all about??

    Anyone tried yet? Any tips?

    It always takes longer than I would expect to ship to Canada, but the pre-cut pieces should arrive within a couple of weeks.

    The weather should be nice enough to finish by the end of April. I am going to start with the rear single slider. It will be (3) smaller 5% pieces, and should be the best place to "practice."

    I will likely call it something like "DIY: 3M WINDOW TINT" - I may even attempt a video.
