    Default tinting

    Hi all, I'm thinking of tinting the back windows of my veccie and would like your collective thoughts on using either "film" sheeting or the spray type tinting - which is best ?

    Cheers, Engelskmannen.

    i would vote for film, seen it applied, its more uniform finish and easier to replace if it gets damaged

    I have just had mine tinted by a company using the film, apparently its not an easy thing to apply so good luck if you are going to attempt it yourself.

    Hi Arnie, I'll put up some pics if it goes well - just have to wait for the rain to stop so's I can get the two rear door windows out to do it properly...

    Cheers, Engelskmannen

    Thanks for the comments guys, problem is that I'm in Norway, there's not many people within driving distance who undertake this work and they want the equivalent of around £400 for the job ! The other thing is, without being anti-weegie, if you want something done properly over here you have to do it yourself :-/

    Cheers, Engelskmannen.
