I tinted my old 1.6 golf about 2 years ago myself and didn't have any probs - best to have a friend as a third hand or forth is useful. All i can say is slow and steady and plenty of soapy water plus don't do it out side or in a drafty place - just follow the instuctions, if you do it right the get the result as above!!! and save some pennies.

Thats what the tinter boys charged me too, when I looked into the price and also the quality of film available from Halfauds and the like i thought ?150 was fair and resoanble, especially as the guys Guarntee their work for the life that you own the car. now I reckon that is a Damn good deal, and the quality of work they put out is 110%! highly recommend them!

tinting a car could either go alright or all wrong!! main things you have to worry about is making sure the window is completly clean and dont be afraid of using too much soapy water. just watch out for the quality and the % of the tint as the police are cracking down on it (over here they are anyway). also you wont be able to put down your windows for 3 days until the tint has completly dried out.

Get 'Tinter' to do your car mate. its not worth the greif doing it yourself, also the film that Tinter uses is far better quaility than the stuff you can buy from Halfrauds.

I promise you won't be dissapointed, it takes him about 2 hours to do from start to finish, when he did mine I grabbed myself a full english breakfast and a couple of expresso's and hey ho job done, (very happy bunny)[:D]

Is he mobile or do you have to travel to his premises. ?150 doesn`t seem cheap if I have to make a 5 hour round trip to get the windows tinted.

Many thanks.
