    Worth a shot. Be sure to get good quality material that wont fade, turn purple or bubble.

    I am a certified YouTube mechanic, plumber, electrician, carpenter, and many other things. Just ask my wife... Or maybe don't...

    When you apply it take your time and make sure you get it down flat and get all the air out. It's pretty hard to mess it up as long as you have common sense. If you do screw up it is a pain in the ass to get it back off. IME the rear windshield is going to cause you the most trouble.

    Also, check your state laws first so you don't turn the thing into a cop magnet. For example, in my state you can't tint the front windshield at all but when I was in Florida you could make it as black as you wanted (Florida doesn't do yearly inspections, you can get away with murder).
