How Hard Is It To Tint Your Own Car???
 

 
Im really thinking about tinting my own ride..

The local tint shop around my area wants $210 for all 7 windows...


I really dont feel like paying that much b/c im sure im going to get mad tickets for the Front Windows...


So has anyone ever did their own windows???


How hard is it???


What tools are needed???

ist off, if you already know you're gonna get tickets, you should abide by your tint laws..they are there for a reason...

Sedcond...no, it's not difficult...all you need is the tint, some windex, a tint squeegee, a box cutter and a steady hand...

good luck.

I was thinkin about doin tint my self to cause everybody around here was chargin 200+, but then i remember craigslist.com and i found places on there doin it for like 130 with lifetime warranty and they come to u. So i just did that instead of doing it my self

Hard. Depends on your windows, flat windows are MUCH easier. When I had my 91 Saturn tinted, the rear window turns 90deg. My friend had to use a heat gun on it. Also, rear windows are harder because of the defroster.

You need soapy water, something to smooth out the bubbles before it drys (credit card works, but they sell tools for it). You should also have a heat gun to shrink the tint when theres a bend in the window. It will also get bubbles out.

I did my own tint, sh*t turned out good but it's still not as good as you can't make the cuts as precise with a box cutter as the shops make it. But I don't roll with the windows down ever so it's unnoticeable with the windows up.

You need to buy the right liquid which they have at automotive shops for tint. You also need a blade and a credit card or something similar. You need patience too to get all the air bubbles out and they are a whole sh*tload so make sure you allocate enough time for the project.

Well how about u just dont get your front window tinted, then you won't have to worry about tickets and you'll be able to afford a pro job.

210 is fu*king cheap..

but good luck if ur gonna do it yourself...your probally gonna end up wasting money in the long run when it comes out sh*tty and u go back to get them professionally done..

i was sayin that cause windex w/ ammonsia will eat thru the tint. they use ammonsia to remove the tint. but windex w/ vinegar is fine

Not even worth your time to learn how if your just gonna do it once or twice. Just pay someone to do it with a lifetime warranty and be done with it.

they dnt even pull you over for tints anymore.... i havent and i got my own tints done with my pops help
you should use soapy water.. windex will make your sh*t turn purple
there are no bubbles but there are some places where the cut isnt right because my windows shift when they roll down but its cool fu*k it.. i was on a budget got the paper for 25 bucks.. and 210 is hella taxed.. i wouldnt do it for 180 either....

fawwkk that sh*t.

I got my tints for $140 from some guy that does it in his own garage and he does it damn near perfect. Ask around and you'll find the same. $210 is honestly a ripoff
