How to apply a pre-cut window tint | Rear windscreen

– [Speaker] The following short video will show you in very simple stages, how to apply the rear windscreen piece from your pre-cut window tint kit When we receive your order, our software sends the precise template for your vehicle to our cutting machine

All of our orders are supplied in reinforced postal tubes When you get your order, the first step is to unroll the tint and roughly cut around each of the window patterns using a pair of scissors For the best results, you will need one of our fitting kits containing a range of squeegees and cleaning tools You'll also need a spray bottle containing water, mixed with a few drops of our tint slime solution A few cloths or paper towels, and a bar of soap will also come in handy

You will get the best results if you use a heat gun for installing onto curved windscreens Using the soapy water, clean the window outside, and then inside using the scourer to remove any dirt Squeegee away the dirty water to the edge of the window until the window is dry Give the squeegee a wipe with a paper towel after each pass Wrap a bar of soap in a paper towel or cloth, and wet it with the soapy water

Rub with your hand until you get a lather, then rub the window all over in soap Wait a few minutes until it is fully dry Use a wet paper towel or cloth to draw an H pattern on the windscreen This will hold the tint in position while you heat shrink it Place the tint into position on the windscreen with the clear lining facing out towards you

Using a white hard card, smooth the film down along the edge pattern so that it is flat Working from the center line of the H pattern up to the top edge and down to the bottom edge, carefully heat the tint bit by bit with a heat gun, and gently smooth it down with a white hard card Don't force the film flat, as it may crease If the film doesn't stay flat, heat it a little bit more, and smooth down again Repeat until all of the film is completely smooth

Peel away the clear lining film halfway Spray the sticky side with soapy water, and lay the lining film back down, smoothing it out with your fingers Then repeat with the other side of the tint Roll up the tint with the clear lining film on the inside, remembering to take note of which edge is for the top of the window If your car is a hatchback, open the boot

Or if you have a saloon or coupe where the boot doesn't open, carry the tint inside the car Spray the inside of the window with soapy water Peel away a bit of the tint from the clear lining film as you unroll it, and position it on the windscreen, making sure the top edge is in the correct position, and the sticky side is going onto the glass Unroll the rest of the tint, and carefully pull away the lining film Make sure the tint is in the correct position, with no light gaps around the edge

Slide it into position with your fingertips if needed Once in position, smooth the film out with your fingertips Lightly spray the outside of the tint with the soapy water to allow the squeegee to move freely And squeegee the water from behind the film, working from the middle out towards the edges until all the water is removed Wrap the white hard card in a cloth or towel, and use this to squeegee out any fingers that remain around the edges

And that's all there is to it Your vehicle and its contents will be more private, protected against the sun's rays, and cooler in every sense of the word Happy motoring
