Replacing the car window tinting is not as difficult as some think but that does not mean that you should do it on your own since this process should also be done by a professional.

Over time, your car window tint may also need replacement especially if your old installer used poor quality and made from inferior materials type of films. The most common type of window tint that fades over time is old dye-based tints.
