For all you tint experts

I just tinted my back side windows 5%. It came out pretty good, but you know where it has all those lil circles all around it, well those i cant get the tint to stick to. Any suggestions?

It won't stick there. Cut out that part and paint it with black paint if you have to. Most good tint shops will not apply tint to that area. It will stick a little bit but will not stay smoothe.

ANother suggestion is to put some black vinyl over that area on the outside of the window.

Yeah my tint shop did over the lines and I am so glad. Been in some cars that didn't have it over the lines and its so bright with out tint over those. Its like dark tint then bright on the corners and top

The shop that did both my cars did an excellent job. They stuck it over the dot matrix and I've had no problem with it at all. They've been on for several months now.
