Through class-one?

If it is, tell Robert that the guy with the mini put you on to him.

And let me guess, full gangsta spec?

yeah, class-one...
didnt catch the guy's name... but got quoted $250. :)

:? now that i think of it, he didnt mention anything about what kinda tint, and i didnt ask.. :lol:
i literally saw your post and said "fuck it, i'm gonna book it in now!"... completely spur of the moment thing. haha

meh... as long as its legal tint, thats all i care about... i've had my time with darker than legal tint, and i'll never do it again.

Cool :)

They'll have all the tint in the van to choose from, but the jet black is their darkest legal tint. To be honest, there isnt that much difference between it and the darker stuff from the inside looking out, its more noticeable looking in.

I'm very happy with the job they did on my.
he was REALLY quick too. The whole car tinted in like 20-30min.
Apparently he's done a lot of them for the cops, so he knows it like the back of his hand. Lol

Most fords and holdens would get done quickly...

I remember when i had to get a Fan blower for the aircon changed in my old AU falcon... took they guy 30 minutes to rip apart the dash.. replace the fan.. and put it back together.. $200 without parts.. :S

back on topic.. do you guys know what brand film this Class-One place uses?

i need to get the missus car tinted..

cam, are you still happy with the your tint and the decision to go "two tone" tinting? my old man has it on his car and i don't like the look of it......

Yes, very happy with the tinting from class one.

And yes, very happy with the two tone. On the mini the colour difference is not noticeable, BUT, thats tinting 4 previously untinted windows - I'm not sure how it would look on a car which comes with privacy glass on the rear windows as standard (I think the focus does?).
