Tinting
 
does tinting the rear windows on a bugeye affect reception on the radio since the aeriel is built into it

Must be very hard work tinting from the inside...:eek: Is the tint cut around his mirror?

I would think that as long as you go to someone who knows what they're doing, tint should never affect reception...

sounds quite dodgy to me bob, why would the outside get tinted? hail etc, would take it all off. As far as I know, its supposed to be on the inside

stickers/decals go on the outside mate but tints go on the inside

dougal 26 Jan 2007 07:41 PM

tints are on the inside there are placed on the outside to get sizes and curves etc. decals go to the out side most of the time depends on where and when you do them if you are putting decals and stickers on the inside of you car be sure there are the ones you want as if you put them on the back window and decide to take them off at a later stage you could damage your hearter lines in the back window. I will se if i can put up a how to for those who want to give it a shot.

Eric
