    got windows tinted

    got em done in Fort William by RS (www.rs-styling.co.uk) good prices and they use "Johnstons" tint , I'm no pro but been told by 2 people now thats the decent stuff to go for

    I hung around while it was gettin done, free food n drink and good banter the whole day. took about 4 hours cos my windows were a state, still had remains of masking tape on the rear window that had to be cleaned thouroughly before he could start, the guy wass professionally trained in london to do tints so had no worries.

    down point was I lost all the sticker on the inside of the window, I couldve kept em but I'm changing all the stickers soon so I'll have to get some more AS stickers thru the post.

    heres a before shot taken... (notice the sticky crap on the back window yet to be scraped off)


    and the AFTER pics taken by the tint man himself at our wee mini meet consisting of 2 mental saxos and my car lol...




    I'm really chuffed with them and he says if I ever get stopped and have to remove the fronts, he'll re-do them for 30quid! customer service 2nd to none

    cost me 180 for 5 windows and a sunstrip. think he gave me that price cos he said my car would be good advertisement for him

    he's good tho, he done a porsche the week before (no pillar on door - like the astra coupe?) but still managed to tint it perfectly and with the door cards still on lol.
