    I would imagine it would be exceptionally difficult to apply tint film to the inside with the screen in the car. It's difficult enough contorting yourself in to a shape where you can wipe the thing when it gets dirty. Not sure I would like to try spraying it in situ either, could get messy!

    Does screen tint material stick to the outside ok?

    I was thinking with screen out.... im not sure if the tint would actually stick, and what way it would act when folded for top down :-/ that's why I was thinking spray.... but again, not sure how that would act either, if it would crack when the roof went down.... we might have a go at some stage anyway Gar :)

    Might be better to try to source a pre-tinted screen with the dye in the plastic itself. Alternatively, you can but a tinted wind deflector which will cut down on glare as well. I got a clear one for USD88.

    true Cooper, but im a bit of a diy man and like to try things first, when I mess them up, then I go for the cash route :)
