    Default Window Tinting an R10

    it's time to replace the tint on the 10, as strips have been torn off and overall, it's not aesthetically pleasing.

    was jus wondering if they need to take the windows out, or they do it whilst still fitted?

    any1 got this done recently? show me pictures if u can, if thats ok.

    thanx

    Its been a while since I have drivin an R10, are the actual side windows flat? If they are it may be worth getting the actual glass recut with tinted automotive glass and tinting the rear window to match.... I did this with my 203 and it looked magic (rear was flat as well).

    Hi, I'd really like to see some pics of your tinted 203, any chance?

    Whoops, sorry, I forgot this was about an R10.

    Thanks, that's the finest example of tinted automotive glass I've seen in a long time, there isn't enough of it over here.

    Mike.
    thanks. A much better option than tinting but obviously limited to only a handful of older cars.

    Not the darkest tinting out there but it ensured me one less item the Adelaide cops couldnt defect my car. I suspect for a show car one could order very dark tinting, but with the sunroof closed and all the windows up, it is fairly dark.
