I was all set to do this but the "few warm dry days" I needed never materialised! My plan was dark smoke on everything behind the B pillar, as that complies with the relevant laws and should avoid any hassle from Police or VOSA.
The only way to do the aerial and heater rear screen connectors would be to remove them, cut an accurate slot in the tint film to fit over the spade connector, and plug the wire back on. The connectors need you to squeeze them to release an internal clip, they don't just pull off like normal spade connectors. If you look closely you can see a thin strip in the plastic cover moulding, this needs to be pressed down after which the connector will slip off easily. If you find yourself pulling hard stop and try squeezing harder or elsewhere - it really doesn't need that much force.
