Yeah. It was somewhat warm in my garage when I put mine on because the heater was running, but literally within 10 minutes of finishing with the blow dryer I went out for the night in 20 degree weather and drove nearly 100 miles that night, all highway. The spoiler didn't move at all, and the heat has not been on again in the garage since then.

Same for tints. I read about people who will only get them done in warm weather, but I got mine done in early January when it was in the 30s. One window dried with bubbles (not weather related) and I brought it back to the shop last weekend. He replaced the tint on two windows actually, and it was about 10 degrees that day and even colder that night. It dried just as fast and as well as any other tint job I've ever had.
