If you want to try tinting yourself, I am all for that. I've done quite a few cars myself. Go for it on the side glass, but honestly, leave the rear glass to a professional. If you mess up the rear tint or it bubbles or fades in a year, there's a good chance you'll destroy the defroster grid trying to get it off.

Let a shop do the rear.
^ I agree.
Do the side windows yourself and get the rear one professionally done. It took me 5 times to do the hatch and its still not that great. Just take your time on the side windows and it should look really nice.
