Nissan 370Z Forum  

Got my 370Z tinted today!

Mine have the same problem the next day of installation. Second time around, they installed the film lower than the window edge. Since then, no problems yet.

the peeling problem is pretty common. my friend with an is250 had to get tints done 3 freakin' times before it didn't peel. and the place was recommended.

The car looks awesome with the tint!

I will have to keep my eyes on my windows for the same thing.

AK,

So I finally got mine done at Shades Of Gray this weekend. I think they did a really nice job. On top of that, they were super quick. I was literally only their for an hour. I was amazed. In my previous experience, other shops take at least twice as long.

FYI, there is a little button on each door sill that when released cracks the window. You can tape that button down for a few days if you are concerned about your new tint curing.

^^ Oh wow....good to know...thanks. So far so good. Nothing wrong with the tint so far.

However, I was a little concerned about that at first since our windows lower a little bit each and every time the door opens.

Tomorrow is the last day that I'll have to worry about it.

Thanks again.

Tint looks amazing! I'll take note of the corner when I go to do mine.

SOG is a good shop. If you visit tristatetuners.com, you'll find out they are highly raved. I take all my cars to their shop.

Just an update: I'm very happy with my 40%. Even in the middle of the summer, I feel comfortable sitting in the car.

Oklahoma's limit is 25%, which is what I'm getting...maybe 20...or 15...lol

I just have to see it, and how much it costs. 25% is as high as I'll go though. I'm wondering if I can get away with tinting the windshield a bit...like 50%
