I challenged a Pro at Window Tinting

We are champions of the DIY lifestyle, BUT sometimes it truly pays to have a PRO handle certain jobs. Well, I believe that window tinting is one of those things that you do not want to get involved in. So, to put this to the test we brought a Pro down to the garage and we're about to go toe to toe ... why are you still reading this? Go press play

    I have a 2012silver Prius C. Just like the car in the video. The car is a Prius C not a Prius. I have 35% on all but the front windsheld. That was the law at the time in my state of IL. Before that I has a 2010 Scion TC the law at that was back as dark as you want (Limo tint). You couldn't touch the front.

    Haha 5 or 6 cars and you would be good. Nope. Try 500 or 600 cars and you would be eh. The average tinter tints 1200 to 1500 vehicles a year. It takes 6 months to a year to be considered kind of comfortable. In order to learn to have to mess up and since no vehicle is the same your going to mess up ALOT. Oh and the reason you scratched the film on the front quarter window was because you looked at it ... suntek doesnt have a scratch coating thats worth anything. Suntek is 1 of the worst film companies on the market. Sunteks carbon line IS a dyed film and will fade out and bubble up in 2 to 3 years. Also the brief intro to film types was all wrong. 100% all of it.

We ALWAYS hand cut and we take a lot of pride in our work.

At first I thought that I should of went darker, but after a couple of weeks I am happy with it. The front windshield is massive and needs to be tinted. I know it illegal, but....

    Isn't blocking infrared light a bad thing? Because the sun's energy comes as visible light and you would be keeping the radiation from your dash/seats inside. Actually, windows are not great at letting IR radiation out, that's why cars get hot in the sun.

    When I bought one of my previous cars, it came with tinted windows, which creased over time, and eventually, I had to get it replaced because it looked ugly. I paid a locally well-known window tint company to install it and they gave me a lifetime warranty that is transferrable to a new owner. When I got another car, I went with the same company since I knew that the window tint of my old car lasted a few years under my ownership. Basically, you CAN install window tints on your own, but unless you're confident in your skills, then you shouldn't do it.

    I laugh whenever I see a moron in my city with a do-it-yourself window tint job. It always peels off within a year or so because they ignore the First Commandment of window tinting: Thy holy window must be CLLLLEEEEEEAAAAAAANNNNN. I mean it must be cleaner than a food factory. In one video run by a guy who does detailing, he spent MORE time cleaning the window than actually applying the window tint. That's NORMAL. Always pay a professional to do it. Always.

    Here's a tip, a real one! If you want to tint your own car buy all the stuff and practice a lot on some glass top tables or small home windows. You can tint and pull off a glass top tables 20 times and you'll have the concept down great. And do it with the cheapest roll of film you can find so when you go to attempt you're ride it will be so much easier to work with and you'll understand how it works and stuff. Next thing you know you'll be doing all your friends and families rides and making a little side change! It just takes practice and care.

    There must be a big difference with USA’s ceramic tint pricing, and it’s definitely not how I thought it’d be. Generally Canadians will pay a higher price because our dollar difference but in this case, he’s saying ceramic is upwards of $700. That confused me because in Canada, I had my car ceramic tinted for around $450 and my car has some large windows so it used a lot of material. I just find that odd but I’m definitely happy I didn’t pay $700
