Some of my window tinting is coming away from the glass. plenty of posts about removing tinting, but i couldn't find anything about resticking it. Anyone know what type of adhesive should be used, or have restuck tint sucessfully before?

Thanks,
Twigiee

It's just water and suction with all the water squigied out.

Did you ever think of contacting the company that fitted it in the first place, rather than ask home spun "experts"..............

I'm not sure about the warranty. I wonder if its transferrable (bought car with tinting already)...i reckon i'll give it a go!

Thanks Kata, Twigiee

Seen many times and when it's like this the only answer is to take it to a pro. There's a real knack to make tinting look good and stay there.

Ha Ha...No, two contributing factors - smokers and ease of electric windows - up down up down, puff puff puff puff... LOL...and the window seal gradually peels of the tinting with each click of the switch...

The idea of the superglue seemed a bit extreme considering tint is applied with water in its beginning...
I think once tint has let go then you really need to get it redone...
I do know a fellow who has done the last three of my cars for a reasonable price,,,, well actually about $40 cheaper than most but he will tint it past legal if requested to do so...Which made him appealing to me...
Not appauling but appealing hehehee....
He charges heaps to do Toyotas though...

Wasting your time trying to stick it back down as the film will be creased and it will look like crap.
Better off getting a very sharp knife and triming it back to where it is still stuck firmly to the glass. It won't catch on the window seals anymore and when the window is up will almost be invisible. Trim it in a nice smoth curve as sharp corners will catch. (ex tinter of 7 years.)

G'day Twigiee, just got some tint for a van and the directions say to use clear nail polish on curly bits might not be as extreme as supa glue. Happy stickin
