Wow, thanks for posting those pics. I have the same issue with my huper optik tint in the back window, just not a clean look at all. I had read about the vinyl solution, but had no idea who I could take it to in the area that knew what they were doing....

How does the black vinyl piece look from the inside on the car? I am thinking of making the trip up to Alexandria to get this fixed.

I was so bugged by the look of it that I decided to called LA Tint in Alexandria and asked them redo the whole thing. They gave me a quote for removal and then applied new tint. It wasn't cheap but I went with it anyway.

When I brought the car over, Christian, the manager looked at it and advised me that he can fix the problem by cutting off just that section and apply black vinyl over. So he just talked me out of a couple hundred bucks job (old tint removal plus new tint) because I reallly didn't needed it. He even offered to do the vinyl at no charge.

Brought my car back the next day and they did it in 20mins while I watched tv in the lobby. I gave the tech a $20 for it the job. The new vinyl looked so much better. They have me as a customer for life there!

Here are some pics.
