Diy Window Tinting

9 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Has anyone attempted to tint their own windows? If so have you used pre cut tint or did you buy the rolls to give it a proper tint? How hard or easy a job is it and what has the final outcome been?

Seriously thinking of doing mine and was just wondering which is the best for tinting as i have found this

Help would be greatly appreciated lads.

all i will say is read the instructions before you start!

i had to tint a door at work and bodged the top half as i didnt read the instructions and then read them and did the bottom half and it was 100% better.

you may need help so get your mates to help you out.

It's tricky to do home tints without bubbles and streaks.

Your windows need to be spotless and use plenty of lubrication to get the tint totally smooth or you'll rip it the first time you open a window.

Honestly don't bother. Get it done properly. That's my advice. I've tried back in the day. Cutting it out. Spreading the bubbles.

It's like trying to eat chocolate cake in a sauna.
