Color: 35% Dark Smoke

Gila’s top of the line, Ultra Shield auto window tint is the perfect solution for keeping your car cool, comfortable, and looking sharp inside and out. Manufactured in Gila's state-of-the-art factory in Martinsville, VA the Ultra Shield series utilizes a heat-blocking metalized layer to reflect away intense heat and glare and UV inhibitors to block 99% of dangerous UV rays. That means you save money on gas and protect your interior from fading. The Ultra Shield series will look great for years with its scratch resistant coating and deep dyed color. It won’t turn purple or clear over time like cheap imitations. And with Gila's EZ Mount adhesive and your careful installation it will not bubble or peel over time.

Easy to Install

Gila Auto Tints are easy to install. It's recommended to watch Gila's installation video to learn tips and tricks. But of key importance is utilizing plenty of Gila application solution to keep the film and window wet during installation. Do not attempt to install the film dry or with plain water. The wetter, the better. The application solution lubricates the film so you can “slide” it to the correct position. Then the solution helps to remove air, dust, and dirt when you squeegee down the film. Install when ambient temperature is between 45 and 90 degrees F and avoid direct sunlight. You have 24-48 hours to fix any imperfections. Simply peel back the film being careful not to tear or crease it, clean away the imperfection, and remount. After 24-48 hours the film is bonded to the window.

Please check your state tint laws prior to purchasing. In some instances it may be beneficial to use lighter tint on the forward side windows and darker on the back side and rear windows.

Note on Rear Windows

Heavily curved or domed rear windows found on many sedans can be difficult to tint using a solid sheet of film. Try utilizing one of Gila's rear window kits (sold separately) in these cases which allows you to install the film in strips that are easier to manage. For flatter rear windows such as those found on trucks, SUVs or crossovers you should have no issue using any of the Gila films.

Standard Adhesive vs. "Peel and Cling" (aka, Static Cling) Tints

Most Gila Auto Tints utilize Gila's EZ Mount Adhesive to bond to the window which provides near perfect visual clarity. Peel and Cling films utilize static to bond to the window and are 7 times thicker than films using adhesives. Because of that you may find a slight haziness or visual distortion with Peel and Cling tints. Both install exactly the same way and are equally durable. Peel and Cling tints have the added benefit of being removable and reusable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great look! December 3, 2011
Color Name:35% Dark Smoke|Verified Purchase
First things first, if you DIY then be sure to watch some videos on the net to see the tips and tricks from the Pro's. I can't stress it enough, I fumbled through the first roll before calling my dad and haveing to go to the local car shop to get another roll. I do have to say, price was compareable to Amazon. As for installation, thats not to be complained about here... Every roll of DIY tinting is exactly the same size, and same applications. As for the product itself... This tint is the 3rd out of the normal 3 sold. There are lighter and less dark, but for the three main sold, this is the middle. Its more of a smoke than a dark smoke. Its def is not the darkest out there. For most states that make it illigal to install in the front side windows, the cops may have to think a bit about it, or go get their do-dad that measures it. As for now, this is right in between no tint and my factory tinting in the back, perfectly what I wanted. Its hard to explain, and I hope it helps.
So, be sure to watch the vids. Get a squegee, or a credit card. And a bottle with a ton of water and a bit of dawn, The tools suck, but water and dawn make up for it. Seriously, you cant hurt the film, unless you dont spray BOTH sides with water Dawn mix!. Dureing the process, dont be shy, the more you use, the better it will look.
This kit will do 2 side windows, thats it... maybe a small back window, but if you have a car, then get the back window kit, it comes in strips of longer material thats designed to be in the back, and in layers, not one big piece... but if you have a pickup or similar with a small window(s), this one may do the trick.

Good luck!

One year later (Dec of 12) There are no bubbles, no tearing from the window going up and down. I found a hair in there the other day, but thats my fault. Who have written it doesn't last must not have installed it right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad...90% of job is on YOU July 11, 2012
By Jerome
Color Name:20% Limo Black
I can't complain about this window tint. It's pretty good. I picked it up at an auto parts store along with a window-tint kit (that included spray, a squeegee, lint free cloth, and a razor blade). Whether this job succeeds or fails is on you. Definitely search windowing tinting extensively online and watch videos. Take your time. Also, I would suggest getting a heat gun. Even a generally "flat" window has some curve to it. The tint needs to shrink to those curves. The 24"x6' roll will do two windows or one rear window. I used it to tint my quarter windows (behind the rear passenger seat but before the rear window) since all of my other windows were already done (professionally). So far so good. I messed up the first two times so I only had enough left to do one of the windows lol. I'm going to buy some more and finish up later.

I have a few GENERAL tips mainly for a stationary window in particular (this is just the basics, not in depth details):

1). Clean the windows very very well and run a wet razor blade on both sides of the window(s) to clean up dirt, paint, etc.
2). Clean the windows AGAIN, and one more time after that.
3). Wet the outside window and lay your tint over it. Make a ROUGH cut (leave a few inches of room to play with). Squeegee the tint down if you have to to get a better cut.
4). Wet the inside of the window and do a rough placement BEFORE you remove the clear film to expose the tint.
5). Make a more refined cut of the area you're tinting. Get as accurate as you can.
6). While removing the clear film spray the tint as you peel and the window itself again.
7). Place the tint on the window and squeegee air bubbles and water from the middle outwards.
8). While squeegee-ing, wet the other side of the tint as well so the squeegee glides easier.
9). As you finish squeegee-ing, wrap a lint-free cloth around it to absorb excess fluid.
10). You're done!

2.0 out of 5 stars Decent tint December 12, 2013
Color Name:35% Dark Smoke|Verified Purchase
Overall a good product but they don't tell you that this single ply tint is not the color it says. When you apply the stuff you get a blue color in direct sunlight. It works well and doesn't tear to easy. But if you are looking for a true smoke color and not that cheap blue tint. Then buy your tint elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film for the windows September 4, 2013
By Mark
Color Name:20% Limo Black|Verified Purchase
Installs well, no problems, would buy again if the need arises. A nice shade of smoke color. Highly recommend, not too dark, but dark enough to keep the sunburn off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch the video June 10, 2013
By nate
Color Name:5% Super Limo Black|Verified Purchase
If you've never installed window tint or vinyl decals just watch the instructional video by Gila. If you follow their instructions you shouldn't have any problem getting decent results. It worked great for me.

For the application solution just use a spray bottle filled with water (I used distilled water) and a few drops of Johnson&Johnson Baby shampoo. Some people use cheap dish soap instead of J&J, but degreasing agents can supposedly cause improper adhesion or reduced durability.

I used an old silicone kitchen spatula with the handle cut off as a squeegee. Not the best device but it gets the job done for windows that don't roll down.

Cheap tint! Works fine, be super careful with the roll or you'll wrinkle it. This is the perfect compromise between privacy, Sun protection, and outward visibility.
