The Tint Shop. Great Neck, LI (across from Biener)

Whats up guys, so i finally got around to tinting my windows. it was long overdue. I was referred to "joe tint" by my good friend who owns a body shop in Great Neck(AUTO BODY WORKS). At first i was going there to get my roof vinyl put on but ended up getting tint and Joe did an EXCELLENT JOB!!!
Another great thing is that I paid a great price to add on top of the good job. If anyone needs tint on their car please dont hesitate to go to his shop. great guy to deal with and you get a good price. Let him know Peter from PS HONDA sent you! that is all. Ill post pics probably tonight or tomorrow.

he has a wide selection of tint i believe, he has a first come first serve policy which is great IMO and hes there at 6am, so you can literally wait for your car to be done and not have thousands of ppl in front of you. I left my car with him and he took care of the job while i was at work.
His normal pricing i believe is 189. But i paid Less than that. Give him a call and find out the good price .

sorry i forgot to adress that before, i actually have a roof overlay which was done for me by Bluebatmobile, its basically a gloss overlay which goes over the roof. not the window trim. But its funny you mention it, because he noticed my POS vinyl job on the window trim and told me to take it off ASAP , he reffered me over to his boy who powdercoats it, but i just may take it to my buddies shop in Great Neck to take care of it. btw he told me 100 bucks for my install of the roof overlay.

I just used this guy Bill at Dun Rite in Bellmore on Merrick road. Holy shit this guy was amazing. No bubbles no lines....perfect. He did my 335 coupe and my dads 535. The 535 was $179.00 and the 335 was $169.00. Ive had 5 cars tinted so far and this was by far the best job Ive ever seen done.

nothing against other tinters but i think some of the prices i have heard from that place are way too steep. IMO anything more than 225 for tint is ridiculous.

the price is really debatable and opinionated. if you want huper optik tom is the only person to go to in tristate area. does he do a good job? hell yea one of the, if not, the best tinter in the tristate area. he has solar guard any % for $250 which is $25 more then your highest amount pay but the extra $25 will get you a long way with tom's friendly service, warranty, and quality of work.

you will find that people that went to tom have nothing negative to say about him, myself included
