I purchased two rolls, primarily to reduce the temperature while driving (Hawaii). One roll was enough to cover the front windows of a CRV, the second 5 windows of a Miata. The 35% was perfect - noticeably cooler, light enough where visibility isn't reduced at night. Installing it was a bit tricker though.
After watching YouTube videos, I installed it using a mixture of water and baby soap. Steps:
1. Clean the interior and exterior windows. 2. Squeegee the windows clean, wipe with a micro fiber cloth. 3. Place the tint on the exterior window and cut to size. 4. Remove the sticky adhesive from the tint. 5. Apply plenty of water + baby soap to the interior window. 6. Remove the tint from the exterior window and slide it into the interior window. 7. Squeegee the air bubbles.
I should have removed the door, I think over time, the tint may lift off the window after repeated rolling up / down (hasn't after a month though). Also,...
I've got a little experience window tinting on automobiles. I was taught by a professional and have done about a dozen vehicles. Then I switched trades and haven't tinted anything in probably 2 years. I needed to tint a window in my house so decided to just grab something and give it a go. This tint works pretty well. I knocked off a star for a couple reasons. First, I ordered 5% and that's what the box says, but it doesn't seem like 5%. I've attached a picture with side-by-side windows, and let me just say that the photo makes the tint seem darker than it is. Even if you're not trying to completely black out a window, I'd suggest getting 0%. This 5% isn't all that dark on a house window. Secondly, the end of my roll had a couple very bad creases in it right out of the box. Overall, it was fine. It didn't jump out at me as high quality or anything. And I didn't have to shrink it at all due to being a flat surface, so no comment on how well that works. A couple quick tips/rough run...
Gila tint has been around for a long time and is a quality product. Most reviews I think are from those with little knowledge of tinting windows. This film needs to be placed INSIDE your window. (I actually see that people tried to put this on the outside) 35% is a decent darkening and tends to keep the inside much cooler than no tinting at all. It also offers a good amount of privacy for an affordable price. When properly installed this tint holds up very well and is quite scratch resistant. Distortion is minimal and the cling is terrific. Great Product, I would buy it again.
