Well good luck on those bubble lens... post how it goes.. but as for taking a direct hit in the lens with tint.. the silver mirrored tint with red H K H lettering was done on the outside of a JT lens. and the guy said he took a couple hits to the lens and didnt have any problems with tint.

if somebody had the time and patience you could use a little calc and figure out the exact shape of the little cut outs you'd need to apply tint to the inside of a bubbled lens. It wouldn't be easy to apply, it would have to be a tedious step by step with the heat gun, but it definitely could be done.

Well that isnt a bad idea.. but you have to becarful with the heat gun. and too much heat could cause problems to you lens and it could cause the tint to shrink.

So if you have the tint on the outside, do you just wipe off the paint if you get hit?

Ok this will describe how to sucessfully tint your lens with the average car window tint. I have only attempted this on Event lens and Flex lens due to their flat surface. They are not multi curved like a profiler lens or grillz lens.

Tools needed:
Sharp sissors
Exact-O-Knife with multi blades
Good hard surface to cut on
Car Window Tint (this is where I bought my tint from, you'll have to email the company to get a FtxFt price qoute, http://stores.ebay.com/XtremeCity)
Squeegee, rubber works the best
Scotch tape
paper, pencil, ruler
baby shampo/water mix(used for applying the tint to your lens)

Ok I'm going try to keep this simple as i can. If your just looking to tint the whole lens with no fancy stuff on it, this is how you do it.

1)
First off you want to make a paper stencil of your lens. Take your lens from your mask. Tape a piece of paper to the lens. Either cut the paper still taped to the lens, or pencil out the lens on the paper. Take off the tape and cut out the outline of your lens.

2)
Once you have the paper stencil cut out you now need to tape the paper to the tint. You can do this by taping down the tint to the hard cutting surface. Once you have the tint taped down, its much easier to tape the stencil to the tint.

3)
Now that you have the paper stencil on the tint ready to cut out, you can take 2 approaches on doing this. either you can cut it where it lays on the hard surface with the exact o knife, which isnt as easy. Or you can leave the paper stencil taped to the tint, and remove the tint from the hard surface and cut it out using the sissors.

Now that you have the tint cut out, size it up to the lens. See if there any trimming that needs to be done. If not and all looks good, your ready to apply the tint too your lens.

4)
Clean your lens. Make sure your lens is in NIB condition. If theres any deep scratches, the tint might not apply or the scratches might cause unwanted air bubbles.

The tint has the outside layer and the adhesive layer. Take off the protective layer protecting the adhesive side. I found that a spray bottle works best for this. Spray the adhesive side with your shampo/water mix as you seperate the tint. This will allow your to handle the tint before applying. Once you have it seperated and its nice and wet, do the same with your lens. This will make it easier to adjust the tint once you have it on your lens.

5)
Now that you have the tint where you want it. You'll have to remove all the water and air bubbles from it with your squeegee. Rubber squeegee works the best, but a nice hard firm squeegee that i bought from The Tint Store works just as well. Just be sure not to damage the tint. What i found that works best is working the bubbles from the middle out. But you'll also find that you'll need to hold on to the lens and tint while working out these bubbles and water. After you have all the air bubbles and water out, let dry and your done.


I dont have any step by step pics to go with this due to the fact i dont have any flex lens or event lens. but i do have some finish pics. Heres what iv done so far.

first tint i did


very bored


HKH(Hostile Kids Hater) tint i did for a friend


Rising sun on event lens. Did one on a clear lens and one on a already shaded lens(not recommended)




this is the clear lens with the silver mirrored tint, for those who wish to see what it looks like looking through these tint jobs.


Disclaimer:
For those who attempt this, understand that your doing this on your own risk and anything that happens too you or your lens will not be my fault.
GOOD STUFF I have been wanting to do this,now will this make your THERMAL COAT dissable??? Tint on the outside or inside the Lense?

Making templates would be a badass idea.. I have a friend that owns a tint shop and I wish I would of thought of this before.. I would feel bad to steal the idea. I might give the Angel "A" logo a shot
Good work tho..

templates would make this so nice, clean cut and you could just about have any kind of lettering you'd like, say anyhting you want with the tint or make any kind of design you can think of...

Dont worry about stealing anything, i hope more people try thing out or sell or whatever they have in mind..
