Gila’s Peel and Cling auto tint is an easy to install, color stable window tint that increases the privacy and attractiveness of your automobile. Manufactured in Gila's state-of-the-art factory in Martinsville, VA the Peel and Cling auto tint utilizes a scratch resistant coating and deep dyed color to keep looking great for years. It won’t turn purple or clear over time like cheap imitations. And with Gila's static cling application 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.

This was my first time ever using any window tint, but, I must say it was much easier than I thought. HELPFUL TIP: apply on a warm day,(about 70-80 degrees) and in the shade(you don't want the soap & water to dry to quickly). Instead of buying window stray and squeegee, To save some money, I went to my local dollar store and bought cheap baby shampoo and a 3 piece spatula set ($2.00 for everything). Take the large spatula and cut off the handle (that's your squeegee), the med. & small spatulas are great for working the film down inside your door. If your car door has cloth, get a large trash bag and tape it as close to the window you can get (slapping soap and water on the inside of the window can get messing). For my car, my first two windows were in the sun (it formed tiny air bubbles under the film), the other two windows were in the shade (nice and smooth). Go to 'gilafilm.com' and watch the video, as many times as it takes before trying to tint your windows, I did, 4 times, and had no problems. I've only had the tint on for about 1 1/2 mos. now, but noticed a big differents. 35% to me ,is great, dark enough to reduce sunlight, but light enough at night to see through. BE CAREFUL NOT TO GO TO DARK, WHAT SEEMS GREAT IN THE BRIGHT SUN, MIGHT BE A SAFETY HAZARD AT NIGHT!!! BESURE TO CHECK YOUR STATE AND LOCAL LAWS BEFORE TINTING YOUR WINDOWS!! SOME STATES FORBID TINTING OF ANY KIND!!

I've had this on my car for 10+ years. I had no problem getting the bubbles out, just use lots of barely soapy water when putting it on and you squeegee those bubbles right out. Also, the "static cling" tint is only for those windows where you want to be able to easily remove it and without damage (adhesive tint requires a razor blade to remove). In my opinion, the only windows that qualify for this are windows with painted-on heater/defroster stripes. If you use regular (adhesive) tint on defroster stripes, they'll come off when the tint comes off. Not good. So, basically the static cling tint is for the back window. By the way, my back window is curved on the sides and this follows the curves just great without bunching or bubbling up.

Cut it roughly to size (ideally, about an inch bigger all around than the window but don't screw that up!!) After cleaning the window thoroughly, start in the middle and just slap it up there. Make sure that it's even, overlaps the window all around, etc. Then, peel back about 1/3 and spray it down with soapy water. Quite a bit of it. Work the bubbles from the inside to the edge. Look at it (or have a friend look at it) from the outside - the bubbles are really obvious from the outside. Once you get that all nice and perfect, peel back and roll up the other 2/3rds and spray it down. Do the same, but work the bubbles towards the closest edge starting with where you've got the first 1/3 perfect. Once it's perfectly even all around and you've worked all of the bubbles out, start cutting it with a razor blade to the exact right size. Start at the bottom (your screw ups won't be nearly as noticeable).

Pretty easy to install . The tint has a dark navy blue color to it but looks black.. It's a Lil darker than you average 20% tint ... If your doing your own tint I recommend this for you for the price.... To give you a rough idea I used 1 roll for 2 doors On a 96 Chevy s10 I also used 2 rolls of 5% Gila static clinging tint for all my rear windows because one layer of 5 is kind of dark but still lets light in where you can see a dark shadow so i double layered which is way better and so dark that you can't see in at all ... Looking out is pretty decent except for at night is pitch black but you can see cars behind you... Overall I love it ...

Color: 5% Super Limo Black Verified Purchase
I bought this cling (Gila JS242 Peel and Cling Super Limo Black 5% VLTStatic Cling Glare Control Automotive Window Tint) for our new 2016 Toyota Sienna minivan. The van’s rear windows are all tinted by the manufacture, but they aren’t very dark (maybe 35%?) and my kids were melting in the afternoon sun. I’ve always used those ‘baby shade/clings’ on my rear windows, but they were not near big enough to cover the windows-the 2nd row windows on the van are huge- over 37” wide and 20” long! Please note, I wasn’t trying to make this look “professional” – I just wanted my kids to be shaded. For the install: because of how the van interior is designed, I wasn’t able to utilize the company’s “apply to the outside and cut to shape” method in their video. So I used a large piece of artist paper and traced the interior window outline the best I could, and then cut the tint from that outline. I had bought GILA's recommended liquid solution/razor/squeegee set and totally used it – the razor to cut and the spray and squeegee to apply. I mostly followed the directions in the video: spraying the window, moving it around easily, then squeegeeing it on. I LOVE LOVE the results! I didn’t have enough to do the 3rd row rear windows (just barely!), so I’ll have to buy another roll, but $30 to shade my kids and keep them happy? Sooo worth it! Also, both windows roll down just fine with the cling on. It’s only been about a month, so I can’t attest to how long they’ll last, but they’re great right now. The only worry I have is the window has a slight curve, which made putting the cling up a little tricky – in just one spot, it didn’t want to stick to the curve. With a little extra attention, it did finally cling to the window, and it’s holding up just fine so far. If it starts coming away from the window, I’ll do an update. Highly recommend!
