    You are better off taking all of the tint off and just get a single layer or 5%. That is plenty dark enough. If you want to see out of the windows at all 5% is plenty dark, I speak from experience!!!

    what is your overall goal with tint? to match the rear windows? make it impossible to see in (and out at night)?

    well stacking layers pretty much makes the original hardcoat useless, and if there is no hardcoat, your first 35% is about 50%

    1) No tint guy worth a crap would layer tint.
    2) Ask for your money back (see #1).
    3) Find a new tint guy (see #1).
    4) Rip it off and just install one layer in the desired darkness.
