Bubbles in tints

I just got my back window redone and there are those bubbles around the little black circles things around the outside of the window. Is there a way to help the tint bond to the window back there?

not really. if it bothers you that much you can get black paint to fill in the areas around the dot matrix. I believe its called india ink, but dont quote me on that. You would have to use the pain before the tint is applied

itll come back out. those bubble designs are raised so the tint won't be able to stick in the window parts. Nothing you can do really.

^^ Yeah nothing really you can do on that one. You could try to spray tint it. That would be a bitch though...

get out a hair dryer or heat gun and put some heat on it, then like stated above, use a credit card or flat blade and press the tint down. Most of the time this work pretty well when you have new tint. If not you will have to get some viny and cut yourself a sun visor strip and put it on the outside of the car. Other then that, there is no way around it. I also found that if before you tint the window, you can take a razor and take most of those dots off and then tint right over them. works much better!!!

I don't have this problem, it depends on how good of a place you go to.

EXACTLY, There are alot of places that don't use heat durring installation, that is why you need to let your car sit with the windows up for a few days. When I do my tint jobs I bake the tint to the glass with a heatgun. That way your don't have these problems. Some people just don't do it that way.
