I personally wouldn't. Maybe after everything is cured and set, if you feel so inclined to. But I'd wait till you know if he actually did a good job. Plus I knew guys who worked in these shops and their hourly pay was very fair.

personally I tip everyone that does something on my Jeep, even if its only a 5-spot. Take a look around, no mess and everything looks good, throw the guy a 5-er. Just my 0.02

I typically do, but i have been using the same shop for 10 years and they're very professional.

I tip if the job is good and the price was right.

if the owner did it, no. but if it's his employee then yes.

how much would you tip if the job was $300 total?

F that! tipping is over rated. in my eyes everyone should do their job good if they are paid for it... tips are good for jobs that are labor intensive and dont get paid that much... 300 bucks for some tint ... no tip.

^^^ I agree...what is it with tipping these days? Your paying for the service already, why do people insist to pay even more? I dont mean to sound cheap, but I tip well for things that people normally tip for..dinner, bus driver who loads my luggage etc etc.
Im an air traffic controller, I ensured a southwest 737 didnt smack a united 767 today. Did southwest airlines or the pilots send me a tip for doing my job? lol no. So to answer your question I say no do not tip. I have had many cars tinted before and never once thought I was supposed to tip the tinter.

I tip if I get good service. If it looks like the guy is doing the right thing by you and he is an employee nit the owner then I would tip him. $15 seems fair if your paying $300
