Tinting Outside


lewis7942

Hey guys, now I know it's really not ideal to be tinting cars outside but I no longer have a unit 'money issues'.

90% of the time it comes out looking great but on the odd occasion it doesn't...

I was just wondering for those of you out there that tint mobile and outside if you have any useful tips to minimize contamination.....

Like I said I know its not ideal but its got to do for now....!

thanks

We have a fastshelter blow up tent for mobile bumper painting. Ive used it also for tinting on dealer lots on a windy day. It works great if there is room to set up.

tinting outside can be a challenge... I'm a mobile tinter in Los Angeles... not alot of houses with closed and secure garages out here... most the time i tint in a covered parking garage with giant open windows everywhere... i go through pretty much every precaution to tint... wetting the floors, making sure the car is parked sideways to tint one side at a time in case theres a wind, cleaning the inside of the window 3 times more than i would usually clean indoors... i mean there's all sorts of elements that you will be fighting against tinting outdoors... i guarantee that you'll get only better and better as you encounter the many obstacles.... good luck...

Thanks for the links, they are pricey compared to traditional shelters but the set-up time is very nice.

i was in the dominican republic. almost all the tinters work outside. the lucky ones get a carport. these are the actual tint shops in the area. because of the heat and humidity, they have to keep the car running with the ac on. most cars have internal filters to de-dustify the car as it runs. what was most impressive is how they cut the pattern, peeled the back corner a little, put that in their mouth using the other hand to hold the other end of the film. with the free hand they opened the door, crawled in, shut the door and peeled the release sheet and hung it. i was astonished. came out nice. if you have to tint outside, there is a way to do it. call a haitian or dominican

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.
