give it about at least 2 days or so and leave the car in the sun to dry out all the left over water... after that, it should be good. roll down the window a little bit, and if you see a "finger" pop up at the bottom of the tint, just lick your finger, and push down on it, and let it bake longer...
but after that, it should be good... i just rolled down my windows for the first time today after getting my tint done (15% on monday), and it seems to be fine...
