1984 Ford F250 Windows

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

From my lurking on this forum it appears that the subject truck is difficult to tint due to the vent windows and the rear slider glass. I am one of the crazy ones that got my windows tinted by a shop yesterday for $250, the windows are still curing for a few more days. The job was complete right around sunset so the gaps / issues were not visible until this afternoon on a bright sunny day. My issues with the tint are the edge gaps on the vent windows / rear glass and the passenger window has multiple scuffs on the tint itself.

 

My questions are:

1. Do the photos below represent an acceptable job in regards to the gaps?

2. Should I request the installer redo or is this as good as it is going to get?

3. If I request a refund, should it be for the full amount or should it be partial to account for some of his time / labor?

Thank you!

Not the best but not the worst either.  For the money I would think they could get better edges or use somethinglike puffy paint to glaze in the edges and make it look good.

Not a $250 job, if i paid $150 or less i wouldn't complain because you get what you pay for, but you figured $250 would be a good job and paid it and didn't get what you paid for. Most people in this group can do those without gaps.

Agreed, I was initially quoted $200 until I showed up and he saw the rear slider window, and he increased it to $250. I would be fine paying this amount any day, however I do not believe the job performed reflects a $250 tint-job. Would the best thing to do is have him strip it all off and refund the full amount or ask for a partial refund to compensate him for his time spent, to be fair?

Ask if they can redo it better, if no redo then remove/refund.

I have done 100's of these and that is certainly not acceptable. There may be a minimal amount of light gap due to the old nature of these windows and not having the black paint around the edges. A lot of newer tinters do have the experience that us oldies do and struggle on these more difficult vehicles.
