Q: What is Darkest Legal Tint ?
NB: Not all 'darkest legal' films look alike as it is simply a measure of light transmission, not a description of the shade / colour.

Front doors - ALL VEHICLES - No less than 35%VLT (blocks 65% light)

Rear doors, cargo area and rear screen - Passenger Vehicles
No less than 20%VLT (blocks 80% light)

Rear doors, cargo area and rear screen - Commercial Vans (no seats) 
Any tint allowed (5%VLT) payload area
NB: This does not apply to passenger vehicles that have
been registered as commercial vehicles for tax purposes.


Q: What is Factory Privacy Glass ? 
Dark coloured glass (~20%VLT) installed by manufacturer
to all but the front two doors / windscreen


Q: Can you tint the front doors to match factory privacy glass ? 
No - that would render your vehicle unroadworthy, void your insurance and make us liable.

Q: Will we tint factory privacy glass ?
No, most privacy glass rejects >80% UV (free testing).
The only legal addition is clear UV tint which rejects 99% UV.


Q: Can you tint the front windscreen? 

No - that would render your vehicle unroadworthy, void your insurance and make us liable.The front screen is already blocking high levels of UV due to it's laminate construction incorporating a plastic film layer.

Q: Does it cost extra to remove old film ? 

Yes, case dependant. Expect to pay up to $100 surcharge for full tint removal and a minimum of one extra hour required.
Three step process as shown below: remove interior trim, steam old film off (usually ensures rear demister functionality maintained), chemically clean glue residue.


Q: How can I tell if my car is tinted ? 
Check around the inside of the rear screen for a physical edge of film. 
Partly wind down a window and check along the inside top edge, especially in the corner. A short youtube example here.
