lol hehe. Well I fixed the rolling problem. There was the rubber piece folded down so I stuck a pen and took off the door panel to pop it out. And cleaned the film with water. It's on there good after 48 hrs so no probs there. It's mostly working fine now.

Day_tripper I think 35% will look good on silver. I didn't want to go too dark either. If you go really light like 50% I think it's just gonna look like dirty windows.
