How bout that "Night Shade" pray, for blacking out tail lights, might work.Id test it on some clear plastic first though, to see if you can get even coverage, you dont want to wreck your top.

The tint is in a aresol can under pressure with a spray bomb cap,Your suposed to tape off the bottom of the window and spay alot on the window , so it runs , you get one big run and it evens itself out.and let it dry.
Go to lordco parts and ask for the VHT brand tint.

I was just searching for 'tinting' to find a good place to tint my hardtop, and came accross this thread.

It would seem to me that laying the softtop windows flat on the ground and then spraying them would allow the paint to settle more easily and not run as you guys are saying....but I'm sure somebody thought of that, right? ;)

Cheers! :mullet

[edit]Ok....now I'm thinking TJ st window tinting...so I may be way off here. Sorry if I am.[/edit]
