Even if it's below freezing..I'd rather have them do it and have clean water in my shaop when it starts to thaw rather than dirty sludge.

Keeps the work pants cleaner too..only tinters in the winter climates know how dirty they can get :thumb

I only ask them to do it in the pollen season here, it gets really bad in the spring.

Most times I rinse them off anyway, the water is pretty clean at my place and freezing is rare, but it does happen.

Some winters I've had icicles form while leak testing.

The water is pretty hard here, if you just rinse a car without shamoising (sp?) it off, it will be covered with spots that are a bugger to get off. :lol6

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
