    Default Windows are tinted !! (Black Vec)

    Tinted my windows on Wednesday ! Very happy

    Had it done by a mobile tinter from the Bristol area. Hes the only mobile tinter ive ever seen. Yes, I know im from S.Wales but I work in Bristol and have family there. I watched him do my parents neighbours Honda Accor Tourer (Obviously in Bristol) and he did a fantastic job. The results are awesome.

    I has the rear door, quarter and rear screen done in the 2nd lightest tint. I think it was 35% but anyway, its still see through, I just wanted a subtle look about it. Guess what, no white band, he assured me he was good lol and he gave advice on how to make sure the white band does not start forming.

    The job is perfect, cant find any imperfections. If you want his tel number, perhaps I could PM you. It was only £130.....Well, well worth it.

    Piccys dont do it justice really....(Oh, excuse the dirt)











    Comment good or bad !!! Just dont post the bad ones !! haha

    I think the black Vectra's look nice with tinted windows. (Although it does need cleaning )

    They have done a good job !

    Thanks, basically its only the rear window that suffers this problem. Look at your rear screen and you will see a black opaque trim around the outside. That black band is faded out with a series of dots. The tint often fails to stick inbetween the dots as they are tightly compacted, causing a white band !!

    Yes, thankyou, I know lol !!!
