Easy to install Easy to Install Gila Auto Tints are easy to install. It's recommended to watch Gila's installation video to learn tips and tricks. But of key importance is utilizing plenty of Gila application solution to keep the film and window wet during installation. Do not attempt to install the film dry or with plain water. The wetter, the better. The application solution lubricates the film so you can “slide” it to the correct position. Then the solution helps to remove air, dust, and dirt when you squeegee down the film. Install when ambient temperature is between 45 and 90 degrees F and avoid direct sunlight. You have 24-48 hours to fix any imperfections. Simply peel back the film being careful not to tear or crease it, clean away the imperfection, and remount. After 24-48 hours the film is bonded to the window. Please check your state tint laws prior to purchasing. In some instances it may be beneficial to use lighter tint on the forward side windows and darker on the back side and rear windows. Note on Rear Windows Heavily curved or domed rear windows found on many sedans can be difficult to tint using a solid sheet of film. Try utilizing one of Gila's rear window kits (sold separately) in these cases which allows you to install the film in strips that are easier to manage. For flatter rear windows such as those found on trucks, SUVs or crossovers you should have no issue using any of the Gila films. Standard Adhesive vs. "Peel and Cling" (aka, Static Cling) Tints Most Gila Auto Tints utilize Gila's EZ Mount Adhesive to bond to the window which provides near perfect visual clarity. Peel and Cling films utilize static to bond to the window and are 7 times thicker than films using adhesives. Because of that you may find a slight haziness or visual distortion with Peel and Cling tints. Both install exactly the same way and are equally durable. Peel and Cling tints have the added benefit of being removable and reusable.
I ordered this hoping it would be enough to do the driver and passenger windows in my car. Half way through the project, I cut a piece that was too short to cover the driver side window and had to go to Advance Auto Parts for another roll of tint to avoid driving for a couple days with one untinted window waiting for another roll to arrive. The extra roll was also made by Gila but it had adhesive on it as opposed to being static cling, which has the feel of being more or less, a fancy reusable sticker.After..
I wanted to offer some advice/tips if your going to do this yourself. First would be to get one of the installation kits for around $10 and most important is to Google "how to apply tint to cars" and watch as many videos as you can. These 2 things made it so much easier.My third tip is to spray and wet wet wet and wet some more the window/tint before applying. You will understand what I mean once you watch the videos. If you think its wet enough, spray it a couple more times anyway.This tint is not like..
This was my first time ever using any window tint, but, I must say it was much easier than I thought. HELPFUL TIP: apply on a warm day,(about 70-80 degrees) and in the shade(you don't want the soap & water to dry to quickly). Instead of buying window stray and squeegee, To save some money, I went to my local dollar store and bought cheap baby shampoo and a 3 piece spatula set ($2.00 for everything). Take the large spatula and cut off the handle (that's your squeegee), the med. & small spatulas are great ..
