Auto window tinting is one of those love it or hate it things that you have done to your car.
I guess it depends how you feel about it where you live on Long Island.
I finally got tinting done on my car from a word of mouth recommendation.
The company I used was www.windowtintinglongisland.net
I have to say I was pleasantly pleased with the outcome of the job, plus I got a really good price.
I remember growing up and looking at people who had their cars tinting, with a special set of life’s lenses.
Auto glass tinting, I thought was for the drug dealers and the super rich. I came from a middle income family and I thought they everyone who made less than my dad were drug dealers and everyone who made more were rich.
I guess this view came into being with all of the movies I watched growing up. Miami vice, Dallas, etc. They had me develop my worldview or more accurately, the view I had of people I had while living out my childhood here on Long Island.
I was thinking of having a mobile window tinting service tint my car, but I could not get it out of my mind that that is what the drug dealers did.
I know what you are saying. “Roger, you need to lighten up”. I know. I definitely watch too much t.v.
Listen, it took a while for me to save my nickels for my 2016 Lexus IS. When a person worked has worked as hard as I have to get what I have today, then you can tell me that I am silly when dealing with getting my cool auto window tinting.
So I brought it to the shop and the owner really explained to me the process. They could use pre-cut tint or custom cut it to my car specifications and keep it at a reasonable cost..
They also explained to me the window tinting laws here in Long Island NY. As a matter of fact they would not apply any type of car tinting that would violate local laws.
That was a good thing. I don’t like giving any more money then I need to the government.
I saw how they meticulously cleaned all of the glass on my kick ass car. I was like “Wow, if your auto tinting business ever went under, you guys can do detailing!”
I obviously knew that they cleaned the heck out of the windows so the tint will lay perfectly and not bubble up. You constantly hear of the horror stories of sloppily applied window tint just so the company can keep the costs down.
I told them I wanted to front passenger sides a little lighter than back seat windows. The owner really did not think that was necessary and convinced me that just to go with a slightly lighter tint all around for the car’s windows just so I could maintain a symmetrical look.
I love my metallic silver car so I said fine. So the technicians began to work methodically apply the film which I paid quite a price for.
As they completed the front windows I knew that even though I thought the car window tinting prices that was given to me was a little high, by looking at the work I thought it was well worth the additional cost.
So the technicians then moved to my rear passenger windows, and I really started to appreciate their mastery of their auto window tinting craft.
The continued their methodical pace of their auto tinting craft. With the finality of the rear windshield being done, I was glad that my car had become gangsta.
