all automotive window tinting is prepped and shaped on the outside of the vehicle and applied to the inside of the glass,
car window tint is an interior product design to be applied to the inside or your car's glass only.
Can I wash my car after getting my windows tinted?
yes, your car can be washed immediately after it's been tinted, just please be careful not to disturb the film on the inside for 3-5 days while it cures.

yes, car tints offer a comprehensive and transferable manufacturers lifetime warranty with every job we carry out,
this covers the film against fading, bubbling, peeling and installer error for the lifetime of the vehicle,
we also offer a free replacement tint in the event of a break in or accident,

Is it legal to tint my car?
yes, the UK law is very clear, vehicles used on or after April 1st 1985 (UK registered vehicles)
the front windscreen should allow a minimum of 75% light through,
the front doors should allow a minimum of 70% of light through, from the b-pillar back there are currently no restrictions,
as well as stocking all car tint shades, we can also supply and fit road legal films to your windscreen and front doors.
yes we can, but please take into account that film supplied from these outlets is generally a very poor quality inferior
dyed glue based 1 ply product and not for professional use, unfortunately we also cannot offer any type of warranty on 3rd party window film.
Does window tint affect my rear window defroster?
no, it does not, it actually has a positive effect as the defrosters are now insulated with the film allowing them to warm the glass quicker increasing the time it takes for the condensation to clear.
Will the rear window be tinted in one piece and will there be any light gaps anywhere?
We pride ourselves in being up to date with the best practices regarding the tinting of cars,
all rear windows are cut, shaped and applied in one piece, door glass will have no light gaps anywhere and are always tinted up to the top bevel of the glass for a factory look finish.
Why do my car windows look hazy after being tinted?
car window tint is applied using a mounting solution, during the drying period the glass of the car will appear cloudy or hazy, this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about, once fully dried your tint will be even and optically clear.
