tint problem

hey guys i just got my windows tinted and the guys at speed stars did a great job but now i see like dampness in the film and some dry and wet spots is this normal

also the rear window at the top has these bubbles on it
not on the tint but on the window which does not allow the tint to stick to the top part of the back windshield properly
has anyone else had these problems
if so wat could i do to prevent it

Best thing to do is just take it back to "speed stars?!?" and have them re-do your tint properly..... tell them they f*cked up and they should replace the tint for for no additional fee!

bubbles in the tint may be a couple of things
air bubbles (duh)
dust on the tint/glass (take it back n make em redo)
or could be pitting on the glass surface (as from grinder sparks)
..in that case either suck it up or replace the glass

sorry bout the accent im not from round these parts

Let the tint dry fully, the dampness/cloudyness should go away. If you are talking the pattern at top of the rear window, just get them to re-press the tint when it dries, this should help.
