Elliot - looks SHARP -can you explain about the felt strip that needs to be added? Did you install the felt then go to the tint shop...or were they able to add the felt for you? If you did the felt strip yourself - where did you get it?

thx

easy install

i installed the felt 24 hours after the tint install.
1SG gave me the felt but i know you can get the velcro and use the fuzzy side to do it. i removed the 3 screw's from the trim of the door,and pull the side of the door off just enough to put the strip on.i did not remove the strip because there was no need for it.easy install,just taking off the door pannel was the hard part but once you figure it out it's no problem.

with that 15% tint, your black gt/cs looks even more sinister!!! very wicked!

i hear there is a 3-day 'no-down-windows-rule' on new tint, is this true? also what is risk/impact with rear window defrogger?

I've thought about getting the tint, but then I think about some guy/guys rumaging around in the back seat area trying to position himself to put the tint in, etc., etc.,...any horror stories...I know I can barely clean the inside of the back window without being some kind of a contorsionist...How do these guys do it and how do they do it without messing up your interior???

Also how do they address the tinting of the side door windows with short drop glass system?

Im sure

if you go get your car done they will be very carefull not to do anything to mess it up. The reason you gave us why you didnt want to get your car tinted is not very good lol.just get it done

Wally World

Brought it at wally world (Walmart). Axius Cling Window tint, comes in 5% and 20%. I don't run the tint at night I just pull it off and then reinstall in the next morning. It takes about 5 minutes to reinstall the old pieces, the lights barely show up. I just cut a paper pattern first then cut out the tint. I did the windows in 5% but it was to dark so I brought the 20% to play with. Next I'm going to try to do something with my back taillights.

dly - That is too much black in my opinion, but if you really like it, sure. We all have different tastes.
