Default Tint Scratches... New tint lasts about 2 Days

Had the felt replaced, replaced the tint. Waited 5 days to lower the windows, abd the passenger side already has scratches in the EXACT same places as before.

But FOMOCO insists they never heard of this? Bad fuel pumps, bad rear diffs, and now this? F them... I should have gone with the Charger.

Yep, read it... that's how I found out I needed the sh!tty Ford material replaced.

This is more than just felt IMO. The scratches are all in the same spots as they were before I had the windoes redone, right by the inside door handle. This is a design flaw with the door/handle/windows.

well i'm afraid to get my windows tinted now. Does the window run between two rollers that could scratch the tint? I think i'll take my whole door panel off to see just what could scratch the tint and then go from there.

I would call your dealer and ask if they will tint the windows, and what kind of warranty they will have.

ive had my tint for 3 months. i didnt get the felt kit and i dont have any scratches. this might be a pain in the *** but maybe there is somthing inside your door scratching the tint seeing how its in the same spot, i would recomend pulling a door panel and taking a look inside, might find somthing is loose or misaligned.

I agree...you should have bought a charger. Its not too late to trade and I hear theres a charger forum.
