GF car tint job

Recommended Posts

Please help me, score points with the GF, she is special for me.


2019 Honda Civic, newly tinted.

When looking through the back window it appears as if the tint is not sitting well over the window heater wires.

The effect is that when looking through the back window, especially at night, the lights are distorted.


What I think is that it is either air OR the light having more tint to go through at those wires.

She wants to take it back to the shop and I want the interaction to go well and her not get snowed by someone that doesn't want to fix it. "oh it's supposed to be like that"




thank you!

Thank you!....OK.  I looked up the reflection issue on the net.  That isn't it.  It is a distorted image she sees.


Night Time Defogger Distortion
At night you may notice that the light from headlights will reflect off of the defogger lines. This is caused by the film having to bend slightly around the raised defogger line, it varies from car to car, and there is nothing that can be done about it."
