Tint is most easily done if you simply cut a piece larger than the window, spray the window, squeegee it in, then cut around the edges with an exacto knife. What you want to line up is the bottom of the tint. Pros will allow about a 1/4" overlap, pull back the weatherstrip and squeegee the overlap under the weatherstrip. Since you're not used to doing it this way, it might look better if you remove the door panel for this part of it. Then you can line up the side of the window- but be careful! You always want about 1/8" of overlap that you can tuck in behind the weatherstrip. Otherwise you'll have a slit that the sun will show through. Usually you can do that with the exacto knife if you cut at an angle.

Its best to take it to a pro. Some glass is curved and the tint should be shrunk to fit. Its not easy, trust me. I a auto glass installer and I have tried to tint, did it, didn't look good.
