Default tinting windows

When you guys paint the windows to make them look like they are tinted do you put tape all on the inside?


And if so when you are peeling it off it doesn't peel off the paint with it?

Thanks, drew

no , after your done painting colors i use silver to make the colors more vivid then i spray black over the silver then take the window mask off and spray tint . takes a little practice with the tint to get it even and not too dark or it will look like black paint

If u want simplicity and not screw it up. Then get some car window tint and put it on there.

good idea havent thought of that yet. but dont you have to buy a hole roll just for a few pieces? but you could also save the sheet that the window mask was on and use that as a template.

I tried car window tint once... It didn't stick at all. Just practice tinting some left over pieces that you cut off the body. That's what I did. Now I'm pro at it! Good luck.
