2023 CTR #3177
Finally got it tinted. Just the side windows, I don't like to do the rear as I don't have the best night vision and there is no way I'd risk a front window - optical blemishes drive me nuts. Ceramic whatever, super cheap because Miami.

11th Gen Honda Civic What did you do to your FL5 today? 4-29-23 Tinted F

Car has been washed, de-ironed, clay towelled - hopefully tomorrow morning I'll get any water spots off and do some light polishing prior to a graphene coating.

Made a template for a mesh insert for the front wheel vents but couldn't get the push pins out, I'll pop $10 for a proper puller.

That looks really good. What percent did you go with? I like that the front is a little lighter.

Thank you.

My receipt says "Ceramic 20%". The car has a light tint from the factory with more on the rear windows. The hatch has a tint as does the windshield, part of the reason I skipped them.

FL5, na 88 RX7
Today nothing, but yesterday we gave a Nismo 370z the business lol 🤣 We were cruising 85 North when he pulled up on us, needless to say he got gapped TWICE (well hubby did and I was riding passenger gripping the oh shit bar the entire time lol) Buddy couldn’t hang. The CTR lives for this!! Anybody else getting challenged out there like this?

I got my car in mid Feb and I have only about 680 miles on mine, if it makes you feel better. Lol! I work from home, but I’ve been getting it out and driving it on about every nice occasion I can. I just got ppf and tint last week, so that helps my paranoia with getting out on the highway a bit more. The early part of this week is looking pretty dismal overall and the ppf and ceramic need time to cure. Warm weather helps with that. Hopefully by this weekend the cold will be gone for good.
