    Question Top position to install rear window film

    Someone replied to me a couple of months ago, about making it easier to window install film on the rear window, by making the new piece on the outside rear window, and then putting the top in a "partial down position" to install it on the inside of that rear window.

    Would that person, or anyone that knows, be so kind as to tell me the "EXACT" position to put the top in to do that? 1/4way down, 1/3 way down 1/2 way down, etc., etc.

    That top I'm told is heavy, and I don't want to damage anything by putting it in a position that would damage anything.

    I donít know the best stopping point for tinting, but I have found that I have a 13Ē umbrella that fits perfect to hold the top at this point in the picture. I just lay it down right in the center against the back lip of trunk carpet (See picture) and run the top open until it stop in that position! Itís a great stopping point for cleaning the window too, especially since I have a WindRestritor installed on mine. Iíve use this method to display at Car Shows also, since mine seems to not hold at that point and tends to drifts forward closed or backwards into the trunk! Hope this helps!
