Solar fx vintage and carbon line.

9 posts in this topic

I am trying the solar fx carbon film line and notice it Has a faint blue hue on the 35% . How does the vintage look as far as matching to factory tint.  My global has a  light charcoal shade and comes pretty close in the 20% but seems a little darker the factory.  Me being picky.   I just ordered a 30%qdp to see how that compares . I'm looking for a more true black film. I called dragon and he advised me the carbon Or vintage would be better. I wanted to reach out to fellow Tinter's for advice before I spend money on the rolls and it is not what I thought and sits on my shelf.

That's what I thought because global says  charcoal. It always looked off to me. Every one who I tinted loved it.    How does vintage holds up. Color stable etc.

I like the color of vintage for sure. We haven't used FX for more than 2 months now. But don't plan on switching ever haha. I love the Hybrid. The performance is off the charts and damn near a ceramic.

Try the ultra out, FYI vintage is not a color stable film. And yes the carbon 20 30 and 35 have a blue hue to them which I actually like but the 5 and 43 are green. Idk why they are different.

Been using Solar FX for over 3 years now, mostly Vintage for dealer work, Carbon for retail. The 30% or 32% is best match in my opinion for factory glass. Vintage seems a little darker than Carbon. Zero warranties turned in so far on either films. Vintage is color weatherable and carbon is color stable.

From what I found out is the ultra line is damn close to qdp from what the rep told me. 

Yeah I'd agree with that. Color used to be noticeablydifferent, now not so much.
