has anyone tired doing their own window tint, i'm curious to try one of my windows and see how it comes out, so any tips would be nice...
does the type of film make a difference...Clean the glass, clean the glass, clean the glass, clean the glass...use recomended solution.
Water with a some baby shampoo in it to allow slip (or premade solution). Use liberally.
Use a heat gun and NEW squeegee to form the tint on the outside of the window (see clean the glass above), and cut to shape when formed. Backing faces you when shaping on the outside. You may have to practice this part.
Overlap the tint about 1/16 to 1/8 inch on the black portion of the glass.
mine was purple thats why i took it off, i was going to go w/ 215motoring or the shop up in southwest called select performance for $275 because i'm having the windshield done.Dyed will turn purple within a year. The shop I went to showed me some film they removed that was the cheap ****... like crunchy purple cellophane.
For that price I would go with Shades of Grey. Good Vibrations did the tints on my TBSS but that was before I bought it, looks good but I can see an outline around the GM/70%trans thing on the bottom, SOG would have sanded that **** off, they probably have the best attention to detail in the area.mine was purple thats why i took it off, i was going to go w/ 215motoring or the shop up in southwest called select performance for $275 because i'm having the windshield done.
Tinting at home you say? Buying the tint from the shelf or better yet eBay, pre-cut??
Just dont do it.
This is one of those needs to be done by a profeSSional things.
Most of the quality cats (that are just dangerously skilled at this art) only use top flight materials and will give you a lifetime warranty with the deal.

Save up for it if you need to, and do it right the first time; pay a Pro.
