funny you should ask this today...I've just come back.

Been tinting for about 20 years now ( Tired so tired) so tell me what you need to know( after reading the tips & tricks). I'm sure that between Henry and myself we can get you there. First warning though. what ever you do don't get film with a visible light transmittence below 20 % ( 20%VLT) or you won't be able to see out of the bloody thing on overcast days let alone nights.

I'm still pretty busy at the moment, so if you need a quick answer, email me directly or if you can wait until I get time to check here, ask here.

Good luck

Just looked up your demo
Its brilliant
I was surprised to learn that the tinting goes on both sides of the glass
Well explained with the do's & don't

Thanks Leeroy
What's the weather like there at the mo'?

Glad you liked the demo. The tint is cut and shrunk on the outside of the glass and then applied inside.

It's about 25 degrees today and a bit overcast. However it's going back up to low to mid thirties next week.
We had rain last week ( for an hour) and we went outside to stand in it...It's been so long. Pathetic huh?
