Window Tinting - Is it that hard? (for a professional)

Recommended Posts

I've got to ask because I would really like my windows tinted, but I can't find anyone to do it reasonably.

Is the Challenger that hard? I've talked to 3 local businesses, and left a message for a 4th. Of the 3 that I've talked to, 2 refused to tint my car, and 1 added $150 just because it was a Challenger.

Is this normal?

The Challenger has always had issues with the thick rear defroster lines. Thin film will not stick to it for well and will lead to bubbles and lines along the defroster lines so it's recommended to put a thicker film like Llumar CTX on it. You can use steel wool on the defroster to take them down a little, but it could damage the defroster lines and make the rear defroster unusable. The rest of the car is easy. I wouldn't attempt it yourself because it will not look good and you'll end up paying someone to strip and retint it. The guy who wants to charge you an extra $150 may be factoring in the cost of the higher quality film to combat the thick defroster.

 

As for what material is best, that's gonna be opinionated around here. I've only used LLumar and FormulaOne my entire tinting career and I have little complaints on the film.
