While you can’t beat a professionally installed car window tinting, many car owners choose to try and do it themselves. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, there are a few things to note when trying to install your window tint yourself.
- What is sold and what is legally allowed are two different things
Your state may only permit you to install tinting that allows 35% or 50% light through, such as is the case here with Milwaukee’s window tint laws. However, that usually doesn’t stop a store from carrying blackout window tint that can be as dark as 80%! Not only is this against the law to install, but it could make your drive much more hazardous; especially at night.
- Prepare your vehicle before installing window tint
It may seem obvious, but it’s often easy to overlook proper preparation measures. To get the most out of your car tint installation, thoroughly clean your glass inside out, and then dry it off with a paper towel or microfiber towel that won’t leave behind a lot of lint. Before you install your window tint, place it over the glass surface and cut it beforehand. This will ensure it sticks to the glass and stays there for longer.
- Follow all manufacturer instructions
Again, this may be an obvious statement, but many people install window tint that either doesn’t stick, isn’t shaped properly, or winds up falling off into a ball of film. If you insist on installing your own car tinting, you need to at least do it the right way.
