How do I get the film to lay flat on a curved window?
Most of todays rear car windows have a compound curve causing the film to want to wrinkle instead of laying flat.
There are a few techniques for getting the film to lay.
First-you can heat shrink the film. You will need any common heat gun. By applying heat to the wrinkles and rubbing them down with your free hand you can get most windows to lay in one whole piece. You should watch a video on this technique to perform it properly.
Second-You can do the window in multible pieces. Either cut straight strips or cut strips that follow the defroster lines. Apply the strips on the inside of the window overlapping a defroster, cutting along the defroster and then removing the excess. If hide the seams behind a defroster well enough it gives the appearance of ONE piece.
Third-you can cut relief cuts, similar to cutting a seam but, you are only cutting along a defroster far enough to get the wrinkle out. warning never cut through a defroster as it will lose it's connection and no longer work.
