Worst crap in the world. Spend a few bucks and the real deal tint. And if you're worried about cops......don't put yourself in a position where you could be stopped, EVERYONE knows what their local tint laws are, get you windows tinted the right way with the legal % of tint, and we can stop hearing about tint issues.

I already have them tinted legally.....5% back and 35% sides. I just want darker side windows without spending the money and then have to take it off if I get stoped. I've only been pulled over one time since i've been driving for almost 3 years, and I got a warning.

Im just going to try this stuff, cause i've heard so many "its crap" and "its good stuff" I dont know who to believe. If it doesn't work, oh well, its only 10 bucks.

He does have his tinted to the legal limit. And if he wants to add more, so be it... his actions, and the threads he creates are up to him. He's not saying anything disrespectful, so if you don't like it, don't read it. This forum is to help people and discuss things like this.


My experience with the static tint has been bad. I tried to install it on a Mitsubishi Eclipse, and it wouldn't stick onto the rear window... kept falling down on me as I was trying to hold it up. I did manage to get it to stick to the side windows, but it was very hard to get the bubbles out, and it fell off in a short time. The brand I bought was from Strauss Auto, and I will never try it again.

Im assuming you took the clear plastic backing off the tint first? and did you use a water/soap mixture?

It was actually a white paper backing, and I did take that off. It has been a few years, but I believe I did try it with the soap and water.

Seems about right to me, and the math works out to what he said. Good luck with it!

ok, I got some Gila 20%, and I cut a little peice off and tried it. It sticks just fine, but its kinda half way hazed over, kinda like it was scuffed (no scratch marks though). I unrolled some of it, and it all has it......some parts are worse than others. The results........its cloudy looking when you look through it. Im assuming its suppost to be pretty much perfectly clear right? What should I do? return it and try a different roll......maybe from walmart or something? Im guessing it might just be a defective roll.

Mark, another thing you could do if you have the money laying around is have your front windows retinted to the darkest legal% in Fl. My windows are all still to dark for GA legally, but Darkest I could legally have in FL, it looks alot better than the lighter stuff.
