Adding Tint To Your Vehicle's Windows


If you do not like direct sunlight coming into your vehicle, you may want to consider darkening your panes with window tint. Adding tint to your vehicle's windows is not that difficult to do with the proper materials and a bit of time. Here are some instructions to follow when adding window tint to your vehicle's windows.

Preparing The Tint

Window tint is available for purchase in a kit form. The tint comes on a roll and there is a spray enclosed in the packaging to help you adhere the tint to your windows. To prepare the tint, unroll the tint against the window's interior window and mark with a pencil so you know where to cut the film. Use a pair of scissors or a utility knife to cut the film to fit the desired window. Add a half an inch to the bottom of the side window pieces of tint to stick underneath the gasket to keep in place. For your back window, you will need to place a few rows of tint horizontally across the pane. 

Cleaning The Windows

Before you apply tint to your windows, you will want them completely free of any debris or smudging. Spray each window using glass cleaner and apply it to the entire surface of the glass using a non-abrasive sponge. Scrape off any caked on grime with the sponge. Dry the windows using a piece of lint-free cloth. When your windows appear to be streak-free and dry, you can start applying tint.

Applying The Tint

Spray the interior of the window you are working on with the adhesive spray enclosed in the window tinting kit. To apply tint, you will need to peel off the paper backing so it can adhere to the window. Spray this sticky side of the tint with the adhesive spray as and place it over the wet interior window. You will be able to shift the tint into the proper positioning over your window for a minute or two before the adhesive starts to dry. 

Spray the exterior of the tinting with the spray to make it easier to glide a squeegee over the tint to push any moisture out from between the tint and window. Place a paper towel up against the edge of the tint to collect any moisture as you push the squeegee over the tint's surface. Dry the top of the tint using a piece of microfiber cloth.
