      If you dont already have someone in mind to tint it back up for you... let me know, i know of a place that will hook you up with any percentage tint that you want for cheap.... they do a good job too.
      Does this apply to me as well? I'd like to redo my car this spring. Bubbling in the back and too light.

      I parked the MK2 in covered parking for the winter after I got the aeg intake manifold on


      In the spring it will be lower and the air wont leak any more.



      I washed it after I got the W8 chrome roofrack on



      And took off a few letters off the hatch LOL

      Here are some tips to get the glue off the back glass with a lot less headach. Get some 0000 steel wool as this will not scratch the glass. Get some spot shot stain remover in the blue/orange can.(It has to be the aerosol can). Spray down the glue on the back glass and let it sit for a bit, then scub it down with the steel wool. If you want to make it a little easier to get off you can cover the spot shot with a plastic bag so it won't dry out and let it sit for a long time to soften the glue even more.

      IF you or any one else want to have tint done let me know. My shop is in American Fork. I have been doing this for a long time and have done board members cars also. Lastly I will ofer a nice dicount to Vortex members ao let me know. Thanks Jake

      Yes sir they are. I told ya I was planning on doing that. I waited a few weeks so that I could enjoy having the aristos on and the car nearly the way I want it, but when I heard about the snow storm that hit last night I switched out.

      I think it would look lots better if I could find those damn center caps for the wheels. The tucked wheel has grown on me, which is what I was bitching about when I posted the pic and I think I'd really like it if I washed the car.

      Next week I have to jack the car up and see what I'm hitting when I pull into my driveway. I'm pretty sure it's just that pinch weld along the bottom but I'm afraid it's my catalytic converter.

      ECS sells OEM caps as well.

      I just don't want to have to buy them because I know they are in my garage somewhere.

      No film brands or types listed on your site? dye based or ceramic or metallic? computer cut, or cut on glass?
