Try using the spray on tint they sell.I think it would be easier to do that than use actual film tint

The window tinting film works real well and you apply it as you would on a full size car/truck. If you make an error while applying it, peel it off and start again. If the spray is uneven, you have to llive with it. Tinting film comes out perfect every time. Can't say that about spray.

Thank you both for replying.I was thinkin it wouldn't be too hard to use real tint,the hardest part would be getting a small piece without buying a whole roll.It might be possible to go to a tint shop and see if they have any scrap pieces they wanna let me have,maybe even in blue or some other color...mirror tint haha.I'll post back when I figure out what to do,I have a 190mm 2G Eclipse body on the way

Like that scrap idea...

I just spoke to a local tint place and...

"No problem, stop on by. You can have whatever scraps you want." He said they have several colors too.
