July 25, 2007I discovered a pin hole in my drivers side Window tint. Very small and round, reminds me of those things we used to make when we were kids to see a solar eclipse. Anyone know of a way to "fill it in" or otherwise make it less obtrusive?

July 25, 2007Magic marker or sharpie?
Depends on whether you worried about the clear spot, or the defect in the tint surface. Otherwise it's a retint job!
July 25, 2007Funny, I was thinking Sharpie as well.
July 26, 2007What causes pinholes?? Did you recently have the windows done?? I went to a place a long time ago to get some windows tinted and I had to take it back because of a little speck of dust or something got in between the glass and the tint and it bubbled out. Sometimes if it's just a bubble of air you can just poke it with a knife, but if it's something behind the tint there's nothing you can do. Was this pinhole caused by maybe a seatbelt hitting the glass?? Just trying to figure out the situation.
Later guys, Jeff.
July 26, 2007I let my wife use my car...no telling what happened.
July 26, 2007I think the danger is that you don't want anything to get into that hole and get between the tint and glass, and a sharpie won't seal the hole. I'd try black silicone - take a flat toothpick and apply - that ought to seal the hole so if you clean the windows you won't enlarge the hole.
July 27, 2007I'm guessing it was a seatbelt incident. I've done that before, taken off the seatbelt too fast and took a piece off of the tint. I agree, seal it up, after a while it will have the tendancy to bubble out.
July 27, 2007Hmmmm. Good idea. I think I have just what I need in my workshop/storage room too.
