Tint strips are very easy to do on your own. You can even get pre-cut strips of tint. I even used a static cling-type material (think of those stickers you put on windows at Christmas time or for you older members, Colorforms playsets). You can remove and reposition. Looks like real tint and stays up as long as the window was cleaned properly. I put one on my wife's car about 8 years ago...still looks new and works GREAT for blocking the sun at the top of the windshield. Looks great from the outside too. The only real work is removing the mirror.

Just lay it on the OUTSIDE of the windshield and trim the ends where the weatherstripping is. Then take it inside and apply it.

This is a VERY easy project to do.

Your dot-matrix around the mirror...who knows. You'd have to ask a tint shop if they can apply tint like that but as for the dot matrix...I've never heard of anyone who does that.


Bought the cling-strip at Walmart, they also sold strips of adhesive tint. Was only a few bucks.

Sounds like a plan. As I remember they make different degrees of shade on those stick on. I can try and see if the shape works for me. It works great on the Lin. When the sun gets between the visors. I will copy the pattern from the Lin.

I do not care about the shade graduation around the edges, only practical solution. It is a new winshield and it came with a squate patch where the mirror fastens. They could have made it like the Lin for little.

Thanks.
