Tint shop in LI or Queens

i recently got my tints about 2 weeks and i have tiny bubbles
and some light scratches...

i was told to wait for 4 days before i could slide the windows down again..

so the tint shop has been telling me...give it more time...i payed around 200..

so im goin to try to take it back but i dont want them to mess up my windows..

i just want to take it to a different place..get better tints even if i have to pay for the removal & new tints

his shop is in astoria, but he has a residential garage that he can work in in Bayside.

he's very careful and does the back window in 1 piece. he calls a day or so after the work is done to make sure you're happy with it.

Ultra sounds in Lynbrook has a great guy that tints windows. So far he has done 6 cars for me. Im always happy. And if he messes anything up he never complains when the problem has to be fixed. Just give him a bagel with cream cheese and he is your best friend.

update:

well i went back this past Saturday and they replaced all of my tints except the rear because of the deforst lines..now they look nice, i havent seen any bubbles. The rear window will have to wait or i can just deal with tiny bubbles which really isnt a big deal...
