Tinted another 335 :)

I tinted another 335 Sat. This one was black and he went with the Formula1 pinnacle 35. I also took a pic of the rear deck after i removed it.
It seemed that the dot matrix and the defroster wires were a little more extreme on this one than the last. I told him to come back in a week after it dryed out a bit and i would push the dot matrix down better around the back glass, the quarters and the back of the front doors.

That's what I like to see. Removing all the obstructions to get to the glass. Great job brother. Looks great.

Nice work man; that's one of the better "right out of tint" ones I've seen. I am sure it'll be perfect after the re-press.

Yeah, it is really tight at the bottom of the back glass if you leave the rear deck in. Plus there is about a 2 inch piece of foam that goes across the rear deck that would be like a sponge with all that water going back there. It takes about twice as long to do it but the results are much better and I'm a perfectionist!!

WOW!!! Hey Lance, I was looking through the forums and saw this one about window tint. I clicked it and thought, "that looks like my car!" I saw the tag on the back then checked the name on the post and had a good chuckle. I will bring it by next week so we can show the after shots of the tint over the dots. With todays sunshine, it has dried out well.

For anyone in the northern Louisiana area, this guy is great. He takes his time and does not rush through it. He will get my future vehicles.

See you next week Lance!!!

Well there's about 6 or 7 steps to taking it out. Let me know when u get your car and I'll walk u thru it.

It's not bad if you know how but you have to do everything in order.

Damn, I wish mine looked this good on the dot matrix. I just had mind done and it looks like ass on the upper rear. The rest looks great, but the whole upper 4 inches is terrible. I'm supposed to bring it back on Friday for him to fix it, but I think I'll end up having to find someone else to re-do the rear.
