I challenged a Pro at Window Tinting

17. Vel 2021.
629 247 Pregleda

We are champions of the DIY lifestyle, BUT sometimes it truly pays to have a PRO handle certain jobs. Well, I believe that window tinting is one of those things that you do not want to get involved in. So, to put this to the test we brought a Pro down to the garage and we're about to go toe to toe ... why are you still reading this? Go press play

  • I learned to tint by looking at tinting videos on HRworld. I’d say go for it. You could earn money tinting other peoples car. It’s hard so you’ll need patience but it’s worth it in the end.

  • I have a 2012silver Prius C. Just like the car in the video. The car is a Prius C not a Prius. I have 35% on all but the front windsheld. That was the law at the time in my state of IL. Before that I has a 2010 Scion TC the law at that was back as dark as you want (Limo tint). You couldn't touch the front.

  • Haha 5 or 6 cars and you would be good. Nope. Try 500 or 600 cars and you would be eh. The average tinter tints 1200 to 1500 vehicles a year. It takes 6 months to a year to be considered kind of comfortable. In order to learn to have to mess up and since no vehicle is the same your going to mess up ALOT. Oh and the reason you scratched the film on the front quarter window was because you looked at it ... suntek doesnt have a scratch coating thats worth anything. Suntek is 1 of the worst film companies on the market. Sunteks carbon line IS a dyed film and will fade out and bubble up in 2 to 3 years. Also the brief intro to film types was all wrong. 100% all of it.

  • As the manager of a tint shop, this is one of the hardest Donut episodes to watch 😂 At least y’all are using SunTek.. sad it was just Carbon 😞 My shop uses three SunTek film lines for automotive - Carbon, CXP (which is a premium carbon if you will), and then there and their CeramicIR (CIR). We ALWAYS hand cut and we take a lot of pride in our work.

  • I just bought a new F250 STX crew cab. I had the back window, and rear door windows tinted at 15%, and the front windows at 20% with the ceramic tint. At first I thought that I should of went darker, but after a couple of weeks I am happy with it. The front windshield is massive and needs to be tinted. I know it illegal, but....

  • Isn't blocking infrared light a bad thing? Because the sun's energy comes as visible light and you would be keeping the radiation from your dash/seats inside. Actually, windows are not great at letting IR radiation out, that's why cars get hot in the sun.

  • When I bought one of my previous cars, it came with tinted windows, which creased over time, and eventually, I had to get it replaced because it looked ugly. I paid a locally well-known window tint company to install it and they gave me a lifetime warranty that is transferrable to a new owner. When I got another car, I went with the same company since I knew that the window tint of my old car lasted a few years under my ownership. Basically, you CAN install window tints on your own, but unless you're confident in your skills, then you shouldn't do it.

  • I laugh whenever I see a moron in my city with a do-it-yourself window tint job. It always peels off within a year or so because they ignore the First Commandment of window tinting: Thy holy window must be CLLLLEEEEEEAAAAAAANNNNN. I mean it must be cleaner than a food factory. In one video run by a guy who does detailing, he spent MORE time cleaning the window than actually applying the window tint. That's NORMAL. Always pay a professional to do it. Always.

It helps to watch videos before you do it lol. its not that hard just takes practice. since then ive tinted a couple other cars and saved money. would still use a pro if I had the money and was feeling lazy

  • Here's a tip, a real one! If you want to tint your own car buy all the stuff and practice a lot on some glass top tables or small home windows. You can tint and pull off a glass top tables 20 times and you'll have the concept down great. And do it with the cheapest roll of film you can find so when you go to attempt you're ride it will be so much easier to work with and you'll understand how it works and stuff. Next thing you know you'll be doing all your friends and families rides and making a little side change! It just takes practice and care.
