78 VW Bus in CA. How much temp reduction by tinting?

Hi All,

I just finished painting my VW bus and am considering doing a medium tint. My concern is not appearance, but reduction in interior temperature when it's sunny. I don't have AC.

I appreciate any input.

tinting will help with that, but it will still have heat build up. A great tint film would be something like V Kool 70 or a similar high end film that rejects a good deal of IR as well as "normal" solar heat. Now expect to pay a large amount for this sort of film otherwise you will have to get a "standard" auto film that will still do good but just not as good with the same light transmittance.

Yeah, a lot of people think that if you get a real dark film, then it will be A LOT cooler in your car....not true. It all really depends on the kind of film, not the shade
