Tinting over tint?

Recommended Posts

Guest SNEnchanted

Hello, I just bought a ford five hundrend. It already had the windows tinted at 35%.

I would like them a little darker. For years I have had all my cars windows tinted at 20%.

I called a window tinting shop and they said I could have it tinted over the tint on the car now. they would use 35% to put over the other 35% already tinted on the window. My questions are is that all right to do that? And will it may the windows too dark??

Thank you for your response.

It wouldn't be wise...

1) The quality of the first layer is in question...

2) Age of the existing film relates to the above...

3) The above will lead to early failure, need for replacement...

4) There is no warranty on piggy back film installs...

5) It'll cost less to redo the back now rather than later...

6) The film combination would be similar to having a single layer 5-15% film applied...

^^ what metint said, any pro tinter will tell you they will not do it and recomend removing the tint 1st and redoing the car is the way to go, anyone that says they will tint over old tint is just wrong...... but on another note if a customer wants it it can be done they just have to understand im not liable for quality or degradeation

if it's legal do it. layering's no big deal. if it's being done with good film on both layers. true there will be no warranty but it's not gonna fail any quicker.

Do you know for sure that the tint would be at 5% to 15% that seems awful dark? I don't think 35% is really all that dark and to put another 35% over it doesn't seem like it would be that dark?

Let me know. Thank You again for all your responses, have a great day!

Blade , do you know if they make a lighter tint to use instead of the 35%?

Thanks
