PostSubject: window tint   window tint I_icon_minitimeJanuary 4th 2013, 7:58 pm

Would getting my windows tinted now be a bad idea. I've found information saying it's bad to do it in the winter time, and some that says the weather doesn't matter, just prolongs the drying time. whats a good shop to get it done? Give me some recommendations and I'll call them and see what they think about the cold weather. I want to do 35 on everything but the windshield.
thanks,
bill

Yes I have a guy by 147th and Kedzie, and another guy in the Downers Grove area. If I owned a tint shop and you called me and asked me about tinting in cold weather, I would tell you no problems come on in. Why, because thats my job as owner or salesman, of course they will tell you to come in, and no issues. Can it be done in winter with no issues, yes it can, do I recommend it, not really unless they are keeping your car in the heated shop overnight. I highly doubt that will happen, and it wont happen with the guys I know, they get the cars in and get them out, they have no room for storage. Sun/heat is what cures tint, and yes they use a heat gun when applying but it still takes 2-3 days to fully cure and that's not happening in the winter.
Now if your garage is heated, go for it, get it done on a Friday and leave in the garage till Monday and you will be fine. Your garage doesnt have to be 80 degrees, anything above 50 will be sufficient.

Guy in DG is more expensive because he uses the film for the windows with the plastic shit in the middle.
Funk doesnt need that film

ive got 5% all around on mine:) havnt gotten pulled over for it yet. I got a guy that does mobile tinting, hes done my car, 2 of my friends cars, and 2 of my siblings cars. He comes to your house and does it in your garage, message me if you want his number, he would probably do everything for around 175

Make sure they use the right tint on your windows when you get it done

Can you elaborate so I am prepared when I do go to get it done? Is there something specific I should ask if they have?

Thanks!

2011 and up have some safety shit in middle of glass, almost like a piece of plastic or something. Using regular tint will cause the glass to overheat and eventually start cracking the glass. Not sure I remember the specific tint needed, maybe Mylar based. Here is the guy I used and would highly recommend him.

His name is Jim and he is in Downers Grove about 5 minutes off 355 and Maple.
He prefers you drop the car off.

Laminated glass appears to be the specific reason for the breakage issue. At least it has a name now Smile

Yeah, I need to get the windows tinted on the Plum. I wouldnt go back to where I had the matte black window's tined though, it looked ok and got the job done, but I kept finding imperfections. Some guy in Mundelien did them.
