Default RE: TECH: Dealing with Window Tint Scratching...

My new (replacement) tint was installed a week ago. Windows have been up and down about ten times since then and no scratches.

Moleskin works...

Just ordered a kit. Once I get it in, next week, I'll put it on. Then take it to Mobile One (Audio Shop) to re-install new tint. Or maybe let them do it all together......

Thanks to everyone posting up their issues and actions. [sm=smiley20.gif]

Had my old tint pulled off today, no scratches on the windows themselves. The tint shop didn't even charge me for the new tint!

That's why Pro Tint in Lakewood is THE BEST tint shop in and around Denver, Colorado! And yes, that's a shameless plug for them!

yep,

I thought i had dodged a bullet, but nope, I got the scratches too. Only lasted 2 weeks

About 4 on the drivers side, 2 on the pasenger.
Worst one is on the drivers side, dead smack in the middle, scratch deep enough to catch a fingernail that runs the full length of the window, top to bottom.

I'll be ordering the mole skins soonm and probably will have the windows redone once it gets really really bad.

I'm going to check into these moleskins, thanks.

Drivers Side Window
Driver's Side, notice the 1 large scratch in front of the mirror.
Also notice the glue residue from the felt.
Way too hot in South Florida, Felt only lasted about 2 weeks.

Passenger Side Window
Multiple scratches, in front of mirror area.

I'd bet you a Starbucks coffee that your glass is scratched.

Also... FWIW, the owner told me he had a couple other Mustang owners come in and they received letters from Ford apologizing for the problem. Not sure what FOMOCO did for them, but I figured I'd throw it out there.

Supposedly these customers went through Phil Long Ford in Denver/Lakewood, CO.

Courtesy Ford in Littleton, CO acted like I was goofy when I called them about it. FOMOCO should AT LEAST have to reimburse us all for these felt/moleskin kits we're having installed! Not to mention the poor folks that have to pay for the re-tint as well!

Did I just read that FOMOCO was ranked LAST in customer sat?
