Windshield tint

Has anyone gotten their front windshield tinted without any issues? What I mean by that is when I went to the tint shop today to have my front windshield tinted, the installer warned me that he can't be liable for any water that drips down from the windshield and gets onto the computer under the glove compartment. He said he puts towels around and has never had an issue but as soon as I heard that I left

Re: Windshield tint

What? lol


A good tinter doesnt say something like that.

This is what they do whenever I have had any of my windshields tinted.

They rip a piece of tint from the roll, put it on the outside of the windshield to cut a traced piece, they open your doorm then they spray the solution on the inside windshield glass, put the tint on, squeegee out the excess water (which isnt much) and then they heat it up to get any bubbles out and they are done.

Then you have this:

Nice what % is that? And idk, they did my front 2 Windows fine. They are 5 stars where I live but what he said scared me so not sure if I should try somewhere else or don't bother. I wanted to get around 35-40%
