    if you have a mrk5r 3 door m8 i can supply u a tint kit in 20%


    im getting rid o my remaining tint..


    most kits from eBay are shite tbh but im making these up free hand from my own templates with my own material..

    give it a go.. ( even if u buy from else where )

    personally tho.. i would take it to a company and let them do it... u dont get ur broken arm fixed by the baker do you ?

    Keep the tint moist enough to move and you shouldnt really get any problems.

    I got film off ebay and it was a total shocker, he sent me 2 rolls as he got the order wrong (he didnt want it back (I wonder why)) and they were both SO bad.
