Tesla Model Window Tint and Paint Protection Buyers Guide

TESLA MODELS & THEIR OWNERS

Like many Tesla Model owners, you are more than likely very excited after the purchase of your first, or even second Tesla Model. During out time in the industry, we have witnessed many die hard Tesla fanatics who can’t stop smiling when we talk about their car. If you own a Tesla Model we have no doubt that you absolutely love your vehicle, and to be honest, we can’t blame you one bit.

There is something incredibly unique about these vehicles, and quite frankly there is no other vehicle like them. Tesla Model owners feel each set of eyes on them as they ride around in style. But who  likes people staring directly at them like they are in a fish bowl?  Not us! Which leads us to the primary reason people come t our shop: window tint. Get the privacy you need while keeping your vehicle cool and protected.

Tesla Model owners, especially in Phoenix, Arizona, have one thing at the top of their list after they buy their Tesla Model: window tint. It’s a no brainer when it comes to the excruciating temperatures that surpass 110 degrees in the summer. This paired with the amount off glass on a Tesla can make your car feel like an oven.
At TINT 360 we get asked a number of questions when they are considering window tint. There are many things to consider, and we thought it would be a great idea to give Tesla Model owners the entire run down on the window tinting process for these vehicles.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

TESLA MODELS

Whether you drive a Model S, X, or any other Tesla Model, you want to do your research beforehand. Take the time to have your questions answered by a trained and experienced professional, whether it’s one of our staff member or another trained professional.

Of course every window tint professional starts somewhere, and there is a first time for everything. At one time we experienced our first Tesla Model as well. However, the twelve years of experience we had prior to our first Tesla Model really came in handy. We knew it was a different animal, and we knew we had to take many precautions when completing the installation.

We had heard all of the horror stories, and what could go wrong with these vehicles when getting window tint installed. Our professionals were dedicated to making sure they knew how to properly prep the vehicle and had access to the necessary equipment. Our technicians worked tirelessly to perfect their methods in order to give each customer the best experience possible.

Today, we can proudly say we’ve performed hundreds of successful Tesla installations and have mastered the process.

UV PROTECTION

UV protection means blocking the ultraviolet light from reaching your eyes. Just as sunscreen helps protect your skin from UV damage, window film blocks most of the ultraviolet rays reaching your eyes. With the right protection, it’s possible to block 99 to 100 percent of ultraviolet rays from reaching your delicate eyes and causing damage.

REDUCE HEAT & GLARE

Automotive window tinting with TINT 360 can improve your vehicle’s AC performance by reducing solar heat from the outside and reducing hot spots inside. This also means you’ll have to run your air conditioner less which can make your battery last longer – saving you money.

SAFETY & SECURITY

Our safety and security film provides a strong, protective barrier between you and the glass in the event of an accident. The window may still break, but the glass fragments adhere to the film.

PRIVACY

TINT 360 offers a wide range of shades that offer privacy for you and your passengers, and security for your valuables inside. Help protect your belongings by keeping them away from prying eyes.

DO I DROP OFF MY VEHICLE OR WAIT ON IT?

Great question! Every piece of window film applied to any Tesla Model needs to be fit exactly to size. The way we do that is with heat shrinking. Heat shrinking takes time and skill.

Many customers ask if they can wait on their vehicle while it is getting tinted. The answer is yes, you can. However, we do not recommend that. When we pull your vehicle into our garage it can be there for as long as six hours. Teslas have a lot of glass compared to other vehicles, and with the time required to prep and clean each window, heat shrink the window film, and install it you would be waiting for quite sometime. After the third or fourth hour you might start going  a little crazy, and our technicians will not rush in any way to speed up a vehicle. After we complete the installation we will park your vehicle in the sun allowing the film to cure, and to make sure everything is flawless before you pick up. ​

We recommend you drop off your vehicle at 9:00 AM on your scheduled appointment day with the expected pick up time to be around 5:00 PM.

TINTING YOUR TESLA MODEL IS SAFE, WITH THE RIGHT PRECAUTIONS

A critical part of the installation process on a Tesla is preserving the electrical system, electronics, and integrity of the glass. As for the electrical system and electronics, they require maximum protection and TLC. Water and electrical systems don’t mix well, and your Tesla could be one mistake away from an insurance claim. The dash, screen, and all electronics in the vehicle must be covered, and safeguarded at all times, especially around the front windshield.

At TINT 360 we use proper equipment and procedures to shield vulnerable areas of the the vehicle from having contact with unwanted water or moisture. This ensures that your vehicle remains protected against any accidents or damage.

TINT 360 is a fully insured company. We advise you to verify that the window film installation professional or company is fully insured in case anything were to happen to your vehicle during or after the installation. If you choose to do business with a person or business who is NOT insured you could potentially be stuck with a hefty bill if anything were to go wrong.
