Car Tinting: Why Do It Yourself When You Can Take It To Capital Mobile Tint & Customs?
Reasons to Window Tint
There are many reasons to window tint, the most noticeable benefit to your windows will be the change in the way your car looks. Darker windows immediately make a car look sleeker and cooler: that’s a fact! But that’s not the most important reason to look into car tinting.
When you live in an area as hot as the South or Southwest, cars need tinted windows because they crucially block out unwanted sunlight and UV rays. These harmful rays can do a lot of damage to the interior of your car – your dashboard, your trim, and leather seats.
A good car tint can also help control a car’s internal temperature, which can reach upwards of 160 degrees on a summer day.
Should You Do It Yourself?
Car window tint kits are available to purchase, which makes it easier for amateurs to install themselves with their own tools. However, the job requires a great amount of time and patience and the finished result won’t be on par with that of a professional car tint job.
The Advantages of Doing it Yourself
There are plenty of options and sizes to fit every budget. Shop around and look for the best option for your price point.
For an easier option, buy a precut kit. Window tinting kits come in two options: whole sheets and precut kits. There are precut kits available for hundreds of trucks and cars, accurately measured to fit straight into your windows right from the box.

The Drawbacks of Doing it Yourself

It can be quite a difficult job. To apply a professional standard finish on a window tint is a difficult skill, one that often requires practice. Although you might be a seasoned mechanic, working with car tinting kits requires a completely different set of tools and skills and you might find it to be a challenging task.
You must have a very clean workspace. Before you apply your car tint kit, you must first have a clean space to work in. An environment free of dust is important because these same dust particles can end up between the window and the car tint film.
