Front Window Tint Strip help!

I just ordered a "brow" tint strip off ebay, 10$ and precut to my truck. Problem is I have my keyless entry antenna, rear view mirror, and the factory "super duty" logo along with that black speckled crap on the inside. I would like to put it on the outside but would it defeat the purpose of the tint? I know some tint can only go on one way or it doesnt really work. I know of a guy that had a vinyl shop computer cut him some thick black vinyl for the outside of his window to look like a brow. Anyone have any helpful ideas or info on this topic?

Re: Front Window Tint Strip help!

I just got mine done and had no problem. I think it would look kind of funny on the outside, I've never seen that done before. I was worried about it not sticking to the speckled stuff too, but so far it seems to be holding up. And wow $10? If you want a good laugh ask me what I paid for it

Re: Front Window Tint Strip help!

I did my tint to save a few bucks and NEVER again will I make that mistake. It just aint worth the pain in my azz to get it right. Having shoulder surgery 10 days before didnt help either. Leave it to the pros.

Re: Front Window Tint Strip help!

I would check out your local tint guy to do it for you, i know we only charge 45$ for the brow, we cut them around the mirror and everything.

completley stock truck...just a simple cat back system....and maybe a few other odds and ends

Re: Front Window Tint Strip help!

I put my tint over the Superduty dots and never once had a problem. Know 3 others that have and they have yet to have any issues. I would buy some great quality tint because that cheap ebay stuff will fade and probably need to be replaced in a year and I'm sure scraping the adhesive off the dots will be a pain. Mine is going on 5 years and still looks good.

i mean you could cut the super duty part out, but its dark so im not sure you would see it so well and idk if its worth the hastle of cutting ...we did my entire windshield and i couldnt even see the superduty so i opted to leave it covered.
