Cart Window Tint Installation at a glance:
- Clean Windows
- Fill your spray bottle with a quart of distilled water, adding 1/4 teaspoon of Baby Shampoo.
- Spray the window with the cleaning solution you concocted above and wipe it clean with a lint-free cloth or paper towel until it is spotless.
- With your Lil Chizler, scrape off any persistent spots of dirt or grime.
- Apply Film
- Use the gasket jammer to fully remove the weather gasket lining the window.
- Spray the inside of the entire inside surface of the window, as well as the sticky side of the window film.
- Before applying the window, roll down the window very slightly so that there is a gap between the window top and doorframe.
- Apply the film to the window, making sure to tuck the bottom edge under the bottom window gasket with the jammer.
- At this point the film should be flat against the window and able to move along the surface thanks to the wetness beneath. Carefully adjust the window film to match the outline of the window.
- Remove Water
- Wet the window film once again to eliminate friction while squeegee-ing the water below the film using a hard card.
- Make sure to squeegee from the center outwards, removing all the bubbles along with the water.
- Once the water and bubbles are removed, fully roll down the window and re-insert the gasket.
- Immediately after inserting the gasket, roll the window back up and leave the window fully closed for roughly 3 days to cure.
