Blue Gel Elmer's Glue use it on the tint and then just press it out. Works amazing if your having issues with it not sticking to that HUGE matrix on the top of the window in the GC.
Hope this helps anyone thinking about tinting their car.
I read long ago, someone advocating using elmer's gel glue (or clear glue sticks) for the matrix.
So would you:
spray the interior of the glass with soap solution,
apply gel glue to the matrix portion of the TINT,
then place tint into place.
Is this the step?
I contemplated personally tinting the front two windows of my '05 pathfinder few years back, and then realized that neighbor who got pulled over at a "routine stop" got harrassed by NJ state police... So I abandoned, but now I live in NJ, and would want to tint my GC to keep heat out mostly and to prevent fading of the rear shelf/top of rear seats, so I think I am not thinking of re-attempting it.
I remember back, one article mentioned REMOVING the glass from the door, and then tinting ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE, then hold a razor blade at a 45º angle as you cut at the edges to keep the tint from peeling at the edges... Is there anyone out there who tints to the edges?
I know that the factory tint on the rear windows of all my pathfinders are tinted to the edge, so I would like to make it look factory as possible...
Also, anyone know a cheap source for decent tint for DIYers???
