Funny you should ask, as I still haven't gotten the Jeep doors tinted although there was a place right at 90 & Military (I work on Lackland) that quoted me $45 for both doors and I have been thinking lately that I need to get it done now that summer is right around the corner (like this afternoon!).

That place would be most convenient for me as I could drop them off them and just pick them up the next day, so I am probably going to do that. They've been there for a while, and while they are probably not quite as "established" as Mothers, as long as they do a decent job I will be happy.

A quick anecdote, when I stopped by in my car to inquire about the price, they were a little confused about my desire to "drop the doors off"and pick them up the next day. I guess not many Jeep owners do it that way, but since I have a set of soft doors as well, I can pop off the ones needing tint and just leave them to be done...

Cheers! M2

Remember to ask me about them. If it's the one I think you're talking about, I wouldn't recommend them and they're the ones that did my truck. There are still bubbles and that's not a good thing. I have a card at home for a very good guy near South Park Mall.

Solarize on Eckert (sp?) and Bandera did a good job on three of my vehicles.

I just had my Mazda done (last week) by a guy who works at Mother's. He did it as a "side job". All I can say is that I hope he does a better job when he is getting paid by the hour .

Im super picky about my vehicles, and I took mine to Daddy's window tint on Huebner. Awesome people, father and son run shop. Did an AWESOME job all around, and they have a great warranty. Nice people too..will be taking all of my tint/alarm/car audio business back to them. Wish there were more shops like that around.

Thanks for the info guys, I called Daddy's, they seem a bit expensive, as I am doing an alarm also. If they are good it will be money well spent though.

Yeah, admittedly they aren't the cheapest, but the use quality material, and did a great job, to me it was worth the little extra for the job they did, just depends whether you want a better quality or a budget job..let us know how it goes!

I had my car done at Mother's (Fred road) a few years ago. They had to scrape off the tint that was old. They did a pretty good job and after 3+ years, it is still good. There were a few small bubles but they disapeared after a few days after application. I got the midgrade 3M film.

Total cost to me was $360 or so ($100 for the removal). Not the cheapest but my defroster still works which apparently can easily be damaged when peeling off tint from the rear window. I have seen better prices at one location garages but I just went with someone who I know has been around for a long time.
