Heat reduction. I have ceramic on all 7 of my g8 windows. I notice no difference in blocking heat.

I'd like to get my 2014 5.0 tinted with the 30% ceramic on the rear windshield, rear quarter windows and the driver/passenger side. I am also working on getting my wife game to have her Volt tinted 35% all around excluding windshield.

However, we would definitely need a Saturday as work for us is too demanding to fit in during the week.

Cost for each?
Mustang would be $200 with the ceramic
Volt would be $210 for standard LLumar.

I only put your 5.0 on there for now.

Saturdays are definitely doable.

As was already said, a black garbage bag and the summer sun is a widely used method. I purchased a cheap clothes steamer to get mine done. Worked fairly well. Still had minor amounts of adhesive on the windows that had to be scraped off.

I am pretty sure he does credit as well. I will confirm this when I send in the final list.

For anyone who is thinking about having this done and has not yet committed, please get back to me at some point this week. I will be sending in the final list to Greg soon so we can start to get all the member cars scheduled.

As mentioned above, I've gotten old tint off with a portable clothes steamer, a plastic razor blade, and some citrus based solvent to dissolve the adhesive. It wasn't fun. I'd certainly pay to have it done instead of doing it myself again. Perhaps the black bag in the summer might work well, but that's a few months away, of course.

So either swear my ass off and eventually smash a hole through the window, or pay the guy to do it for me.

Still working on it. I wasn't able to get ahold of Greg yesterday. It is my hope to have an update for you tomorrow.

Added both of you.

Still waiting on a response from @cosm3os

Greg should have a final invoice/quote list for me by tonight and said we can start working on scheduling.

The 210 and 170 is good except the following cars:

1. 96 Eclipse__ 200 plus 50 to strip rear window.
2. mini cooper is 50 to strip and re-tint d.d.
3. 2014 impala is very hard. 240 plus 100 windshield
4. cobalt is 200 plus 20 for visor
5. s2000 is cheaper. 140 plus 100 windshield
6. 04 mustang at the 170 but 100 windshield and 50-80 removal, depending on condition of film
7. vette is 220

all other remain at the big discount, and the others i assure you are well below my normal price and other shops of any sort of reputation.
Thanks again, Greg.
@Shadow99 @Dasfinc @syP @tinfoilhat @10sec @TERMINATED97 @Breze84

I got the go ahead to start scheduling. Dudes that I listed above, are you good to go on the quoted conditions?

What I need to know from everybody else is their preference on days to have your car tinted. Weekdays? Saturdays? Sundays?

We have the option to schedule one at time in open slots throughout the week or to block off a weekend day to get all member cars done. Please let me know as soon as you can.

@1998gpgt I am good to go with that. And as of right now the car can be driven there. I have another car too, but I don't want to cut in line. I'll wait until someone cancels or the list is getting smaller.

I can be free in the evenings and on Saturday and Sunday. I prefer a weekend slot though.

Let me know the soonest Greg can get me in.

Thanks dude!

I can also do nights/weekends. Is it easier for us to contact him ourselves for scheduling?
