1) they leave a square piece of tint missing in the lower corner for your stickers (i passed on that option. I think it would look terrible)

2) You put your stickers on a piece of plexiglass or plastic and then attach it to the tinted windshield with suction cups.

Either way, both options are not ideal and would take away from the aesthetics of the GC.
Oh that's interesting and I didn't consider that... Guess that will move to the "maybe" list for now.

Re: Cancelled my Overland order from Jeep...

Watch the windshield tint, it doesn't stick well to the dotted or solid surround of the windshield, so the edges could end up goofed. I had a sunstrip added with the front windows, the guy didn't charge me for it because the edges were imperfect and I had to keep smoothing it myself that night to ensure it adhered. He didn't want to crack the glass heating the windshield, and he didn't want to spend hours smoothing it himself, so it was up to me.

The top edge eventually adhered, but he had trimmed the left too much so it curls over the dots, and the bottom right corner never stuck. Each spot is about 1/8" curled and isn't very noticeable even up close, it's only the top sides of the windshield. I imagine an entire windshield would have multiple problem areas.

I still need to maybe use electrical tape or something to "finish" it, not just slapping it on but cutting it in and making it look good. Just need to decide what's less ghetto, elec tape or curled edges. I guess I could try another tint shop but otherwise this guy has always done good work, another shop couldn't possibly do much better. And I didn't pay for it.
