EM window tint.
Date: January 12, 2019 07:22AM

Does anyone have a sedan with tinted windows? I get blinded at night, and I'm thinking about having them tinted but idk if I'll like the way it looks.

The first Corvair that I owned was a 61 -4 door Monza with cloth interior. I lived in Florida at the time and it can be brutal with the heat and humidity. I had a friend in the tint business at the time , and had him tint my Monza. I was lucky because the car was white with red cloth interior and the tint job did make a difference. The tint helped to keep the cars ambient temp down when it was parked in an open parking lot with no shade available. I did notice that it was harder to see at night when driving because I went with the illegal limo tint all the way around . YMMV

It looked great, however my buddy that did the tint said that it was a bear to do the back window because of the compound curves around the perimeter. The white with the dark tint set it off.

I tinted the windows on my 60 when I was 16 back in 1972 or 3. But all I had was the spray on.

Taped up around the glass and sprayed it and it worked great.

I liked it and if I did, I didn't care what others thought. But it did help keeping the car a little cooler!

But it also caused issues driving at night! Couldn't see as well, but I didn't drive much after dark anyway!

Go for it! It's your ride!

I'm hoping it does make it harder to see because I'm getting blasted with lights from behind.

I thought about hanging curtains lol.
