Window tint + rust around brakes

Hi,

Currently I have a black e92 335i and want to tint it with 35% or 20%. Any good shops around Seattle/Bellevue?

I already saw some tinted windows where we almost don't notice the "strip" (lighter near the dots) around the window and in others its very noticable. Any ideas why?

Another thing is that I have some rust around brakes/not sure the same of the piece where the wheels are fitted. Any good place to remove it?

Thanks,
Ricardo

I think you're talking about the hub. I've seen people paint over it with silver looked pretty good.

Take the wheels off. With a wire brush or wheel in a drill grind it all off and paint it. Then smear a little anti seize onto the hub face being careful not to get it in the bolt holes. This will also fix the problem of the wheel seizing to the hub. If you have never taken the off before, you will probably need to knock them with a rubber hammer. When I did mine, I brushed everything. I have heard that you can spray it all too as long as you tape everything.

Thanks for the pictures. That's exactly my problem but although I like to do this by myself, for this I will need to do it on a shop (no space, tools, etc.).

Any good shop for this kind of work?
