water spots from tint

i just had the tint...35% in the front and 15% on the back...but for some reason, there are a lot of water sponts on the tint...it is hella noticeable and very white...

did anyone have a problem like this with thier tint?

any feedbacks on what to do?

i went back and they said they were water spots and will go away in 2-3 weeks the least, and 2-3 months the latest..

WTF!!!

i mean my tint doesnt look black in the dark, it looks white...like i just washed my windows with salt water and just let it dry...

it white...its not even spots, its like big blobs of spots...more than half the wondow full of spots...

can this be a reason for it to be redone?

they are f*ckers... i do not know if they will...

can some one who knows a lot about tint tell me if i should redo it? or just let the blobs dissapear?

Dude calm down and dont touch the tint at all. Don't wash it and don't roll down your windows. That white stuff is normal because some tinting shops use a soap substance that leaves a white residue. It has to fully dry and it will go away.

dude dont even worry. I had the same thing when i first got my tint on my camry. had white spots everywhere. Dont trip man thats just the moisture the guy used to "glue" your tint to your windows. Well dont roll your windows down for a week tops! And let them dry. When they dry you can roll your windows down. So dont stress you gotta give the tint to dry up. thumbsup

In other words just let your car absorb some good ol' sun for a while. Like for instanse in my case when i got my celica windows tinted. Where I work my car is parked outside "of course" and it took like 4 days for me to roll down my windows! thumbsup

Did they give you a lifetime warranty? If they did and you don't like the results then go back and tell them to redue the whole thing.

thats the thing...
the only thing he said was...
"it'll go away in 2-3 weeks...maybe 2-3 months..."

i said thats too much spots...
he said.." they will go away, dont worry about it"..

the tinter did it in like 40 minutes..

scratches my window and my car...didnt even clean the wondow...the tint isnt the same shape as the window...
the tint covers the window, but you could see the cut marks and the points of the tint...lets just say, its ugly on the inside...

with lifetime warrenty...is this something i can complain about and say i want it to be redone?

if he says no, what can i do?..still
no change from 4 days ago!!!!!!!!!!!
