those t-birds kinda work the same as the camaros on the bottom of the back glass. I never shrink the bottom of those. never really had much of a problem with them though.

Once in awhile you will run into one that is a real pain in the rear. If you want to cheat a little, just cut the film so it reaches the dot matrix but does not go over it towards the bottom corners. That is how I use to do them until I started to heatshrink the entire window and learn how to move the film around while shrinking so it will lay pretty good on those corners. Just have to experiment and see what works best for you. If you have to, 2 piece the rear and that will make it a little easier. Sometimes it helps if you remove the entire rear deck tray.

Definitely save time by 2-piecing. Otherwise I'm holing that heat gun way longer trying to put out fingers-n-bubbles, etc. There's no time for guessing becuz you'll end up re-doing and cost you film/ time etc. The customer can't tint so we have to do it w/ least amount of effort. Just my experience.

I used to do a lo of these cars when they first came out...there like anything else that's a pain..they suck at first,then themore you do ,it's easier.The trick to these is to sand the dots about 5" in each bottom corner both thebottom of the matrix and along the bottom sides(basically the area that's stubborn). squeegee the rest of the window as normal and when it comes to these 2 corners, have someone on the outside of the glass follow behind your squeegee as you reverse squeegee from the corners towards the bottom center. One slow ,heated pass and it'll stick. As mentioned earlier, it's best not to shrink this area when heatshrinking ,hope this helps :jerkit

I agree to not shrinking the corners too. Did 2 in one day last summer and tried some different techniques with each one and they both came out one peice and looked great. Practice, practice, practice....what else is there to say?
