Tinting the windows
Any idea where we can get a window film to tint the side and rear window that it will match the Rockgard?
We now that there is plenty of tinting windows films a walmart and most of the autoparts but we will like to match as close as possible.
Any replies with pictures will be highly appreciated.

We had all of the windows on our 65 Safari tinted at a car & truck customizing shop. They tint windows for many of the car dealers in our area. They matched our rock guard tint. Only cost a couple hundred and they have lifetime replacement.

Some hardware stores -near the paint sections...have stained glass windows films that are an interesting twist to window tint.

I tinted ours with mirror window film I purchased at Lowes

We had all the windows done with 5% limo tint. Worked well in the heat but a little dark inside. It was 3M film done by a tint shop. I didn't want the 'do it yourself tint' as I have seen too many cars with the tint turning purple and all bubbled up. Pay a good shop get a lifetime guarantee.

Inside or outside?
Hi guys and thanks for the quick reply.
Now just wondering about the installation process. Like the tinting on the cars is done from the inside and since we noticed that most of the windows are double panels.
How the installation is normally done? Is it done on the inner panels or from the outside?

Thanks again.
