    Window Tinting?

    Hey,

    Have any of you guys ever tinted your own windows? I was thinking about doing the two rear side windows.

    I just wondered if it was worth a go, the film and tools arent expensive. I know its not an easy thing to get right. Worst case senario is I spend hours afterwards removing the tint and ive lost what ever money I spent.

    cheers gonna have a think about it. It does look like a lot of agro all the prep work etc. shame I aint got any scrap glass to practice on.

    Could always use the neighbours cars when they are asleep, and tint the outsides. lol

    I dont think I could manage the back window on a coupe. Its so hard to reach the whole window.

    if you have never done it before then i would suggest trying to take it to a good tinting company as the rear window can sometimes be a pain. just depends on how good you are really. a done my coupe in 40 mins but as a said earlyer a have beeb doing this every day for nearly 5 years so its second nature to me....

    where abouts are you ? if your anywhere near shefeikd a have a guy that a trained thats got a place there. hes quite good. desent guy, always wanting to help out.

    Wouldnt mind going up to Scotland again later this year. Never driven it before, but could be interesting driving from MK to Elgin.

    Just checked AA Route Planner and Elgin is about 10 hours drive from me. Thats a lot of money for petrol.
