Your new window film will take about 7 to 14 days to fully dry, sometimes a lot longer depending on film brand, type, and
weather conditions. Until this time your tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy, and it may seem to have water
bubbles. Do not attempt to push them out! Let them dry naturally -- in the sun if possible.
Rolling down your windows
Do not roll your windows down at all for at least two days. Some windows might "drop", such as the front doors on a
Mustangs or a Camaro, this is not a problem, however; try and keep from opening and closing the doors for several
hours after you have your windows tinted. It is best if you can leave this type of vehicle with the window tinter for several
hours so that they can dry the bottoms of the door glasses before you pick up the vehicle.
Window film may be cleaned with a soft clean cloth and alcohol based cleaner or plain water. Ammonia products should
not be used.
Black dotted edges
Most cars have a black ceramic 'frit' edge on the rear window. Sometimes this ceramic edge is straight and flat,
sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film
from sticking to the area between the dots. This results in a whitish looking strip trimming the glass. Typically this isn't
very noticeable, however some cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top of the rear window. This area is so wide
that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effect is unavoidable.
Seat Belt Chips
Caution should be used when releasing seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat belt
hitting the glass as it is released, THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination
and or minor imperfections are present in every window film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal
deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.
Small silvery looking spots or 'metal rubs' on some windows are usually found in station wagons or other utility vehicles,
and are caused by a metallic object (such as a baby stroller handle) rubbing against the inner surface of the glass
during travel. This rubbing deposits metal onto the glass creating a silver or gray stain. Usually these metal rubs aren't
very noticeable and often aren't noticed until the windows become tinted.
