Is anyone out there considering getting your windows tinted on your SKY? If so, would you do the back window? Do you think putting the top down would scratch the tint?

Just curious. I just want a light (30%) tint applied.

I'm going to tint my windows, I alredy hav the guy that wants to do it. He is going to do it pretty much from free because he wants to shoot a comercial and he said he would do it reay cheap if he could use a before and after on my car. I will be doing bothe windows, the rear window, and my kappasheild. You showuld see if someone will do it for cheap if you let them use your car for a picture or something.

Definitely tinting my windows! I always have on all my cars and it is great for preserving the interior when you do need to leave the top up and the sun is blaring down on the car.

Not really considering it as of yet. My windows and top are always down right now. We will see how it goes as I have had it awhile.

Definately Tinting Windows!

one of the first thing i'm going to do is tint the windows for several reasons. It will deter some people from looking in the car. You can watch people looking at your car and them not knowing you know they are looking. Being a guy, it would make it more of a guys car since girls don't usually get tint. it should prevent some of tha leather from heating up so much during those long sunny days. and lastly its kool to be able to ride past people with the top down and seeing them try to get a look inside. but i don't think ill tint the back window.

Are you not tinting the back window b/c of the possibility of scratches? That's what I'm concerned about.

No tinting here

For a number of reasons -- First and foremost it is illegal to tint the front windows of a car here (both passager and driver) beyond some pitiful 10 or 20%. Some of the surrounding towns are even more resrictive and will ticket cars DRIVING THROUGH who are tinted.
Second of all -- if your windows are tinted -- a passer-by criminal can't see in your car -- . o O(Hmmm must be hidin something) and slits the roof -- leave it clear -- show that there is nothing special inside...
Finally -- I drive with windows down more often that not...

I'm definitely tinting my windows... and more than likely darker than legally acceptable. Considering the fact that I live in Los Angeles, more often than not, I will have the windows down (this week excluded as we are having one of our biggest rain storms in a long time). As for the back window, I am also interested in knowing how/if that is "do-able" and standard. Keep up the good posts...

I'll tint the rear window a bit to cut down on headlight glare. Not interested in doing the side windows (it is illegal in CA). I'll might also tint my Kappashield too but I have heard that the tint might not stay on due to flex - we'll see.

I hadn't thought about it, but don't have the front windows of my truck tinted, nor on the Vette, so probably not. Not having it in anything now, I won't miss not having it. And I wear sunglasses most the time anyway.:cool:

I have no plans of tinting my windows. This is just my opinion...but I think it makes a car look 'pimped'. :D

I'm going to do the back window limo black..there is no legal limit on the back glass..the tint goes on the inside so i dont think scratches will be a problem and they would have to be pretty deep scratches to be really noticable on black tint

to the guy who is tinting his kappa shield you might wanna check the solstice forums on that subject...because the shield flexes a bit with the wind the tint doesnt seem to stay on it but for a few days

I just checked to Solstice forum and you were coorect - it turns out that tinting the Kappa Shield is not a good idea. The flex is too much for the tint film and it starts to peel off after a few days. Looks like my KS will remain clear.

Planning to tint the back window 20 since it is so small... probably just end up doing 5 though lol... side windows 30... anything lighter than 30 is not worth your money..

I like to do visors, but a visor would be so small on a Sky or Solstice it would not be worth it..

No tinting for me, either. Wanna show everyone that there's nothing to steal, so please don't slash the top! Also, I like to smile back as people stare and wave:D
