Hello fellow DXr's!

Do any of you have experience tinting the windows of your die cast vehicles?
If so, what are your methods?

Hello,

I tint a lot of my diecasts.  At one time i was using real automotive tint.  It took a lot of patience and often times several applications.  I'm sure if you have the patients this method will work but these days i use a product called VHT Nightshades.  It's for smoking out taillights on 1:1 cars.  About 3-4 swipes to the inside of your windows with this product and you get a nice dark tint but it allows some light through.  Below is a pic of my jeep that has tinted windows using the VHT product. As well as what the cans look like.

I've used real 1:1 tinting film before and it came out well, although I found it easier and looked better to apply it to the outside surface than the inside like you would on a 1;1 on the particular car I used (Kyosho z32)
