Here are some tips for tinting your car windows: these general steps for tinting your vehicle's windows:

1. Clean the windows: Use a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to clean the windows thoroughly, both inside and out. This will help ensure a smooth application and a clean final result.

2. Measure the windows: Measure the dimensions of the windows to determine how much tint film you will need. It's a good idea to add a few extra inches to account for any mistakes or irregularities in the window shape. (if you order one of our pre-cut kits, this step is already done for you).

3 (If you are not using one of our pre-cut kits) Cut the tint film: Using a stainless steel blade, cut the tint to the correct size of the window, this is completed by tracing the outside of the window while cutting your pattern. It is important to mention the clear plastic liner needs to be facing toward you on the window.

4. Apply the tint film: Starting at one corner of the window, while spraying your film with your solution, peel the clear side off the film (starting at the tallest corner on the top) only pull this liner halfway down to protect the remaining film. Carefully apply it to the window, using a squeegee to smooth out any solution as you go. Work your way around the window, carefully stretching and smoothing the film as needed.

5. When half of the window film is secured to the window, remove the remaining clear protective liner from the window film and secure the bottom of the film, careful not to crease the film.

6. Seal the edges: spray a small amount of solution on the outside of the window film

and go over the secured window film again working as much solution out of the window film.

Allowing the tint to cure: It's important to allow the tint film to cure for several days before rolling down the windows or exposing the tint to direct sunlight.

This will help the tint adhere properly and prevent it from peeling or bubbling.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions (304) 416-1370.
