scratches after window tinting?

Recommended Posts

This is a tough one . But all glass is tempered . Meaning they are not supposed to scratch easily . I can’t imagine how a Tinter could possibly have made all those scratches . Are there any micro scratches in the middle of the glass or the top of the glass? And the damage to the side of the glass is weird ! How would someone damage that . I mean I just run my razor across the sides as smooth as silk . No pressure , just smooth . All glass should be well tempered , but sometimes a piece of glass is barely tempered at all and the glass can be scratched easily . This is mostly the case on American made cars , and exotics . I’m not taking the Tinter side . If he did do that he must be a completely new Tinter

 What is the white specs all over the windows and trim? Looks like paint over spray.

 

I think we're being punked.....

You think the scratches are from scraping overspray from the windows? Interesting thought, but why only scrape that bottom section, and why are there still specks where it's been scraped? I think that's dust. :)

All scratches, micro/hairline or deep are along the bottom edges of the windows....

No you are not being punked.  That's dust you are seeing...

It is a tough one, not 100% certain either way. I wonder if there is anything on the back window.

 

No deep scratches on the back windows.  Only hairline ones around the area outside the dot matrix.  I can see the outline of the cut where he put his blade on the rear glass...

Man that sucks. You got hit by a bad installer with improper training or supervision, in too big of hurry. Probably jacked up on Mnt. Dew.
