Agreed, why spend $70 when you can do it for $30. I've had the Tint Protector moleskin felt on my cars for years now with no problems.

I just bought the moleskin from tintprotector after having my tint fail on me twice without knowing the reason. So I was just about to install it today and THEN have the tint done later this week, then saw others who said to do the tint first then the moleskin. but I am worried that if I get the tint done, let it set for the 3 days, then roll down the window to install the moleskin, it will scratch the new tint during the roll down before I can get the moleskin on. suggestions?

I know this post was a few months back but rolling down your windows one time to install the Tint Protector Felt won't scratch your new tint.

This is an old thread indeed. I tried the moleskin treatment and it didn't last very long in the GA/FL heat. I ended up upgrading to the 08+, supposedly better, window strips. Either way my tint looks fine and I get an occasional scratching sound if they aren't 100% clean; but no real damage to my tint.

You must have used generic moleskin. Tint shops sometimes sell the cheap moleskin instead of the good stuff.

Tint Protectors felt is made for cars and the heat and won't have issues. The other moleskin is just for home windows. It's crap for this purpose.
