Anyone here tint their windows?

I'm looking to tint all the windows on this bus:

I've found some nice prices on Ebay, but I can't tell if its crap or not. Does anyone have any tinting experience? Is it hard? I'd imagine it is less difficult on a bus where you have flat rectancular glass to work on. Does anyone have a brand or method preference?

The seats are out (except for two facing each other) and replaced with matching couches.

Check back a couple of pages in the forum. I seem to remember a thread about this recently. Yes, I'm certain there was one, and someone posted a link to some really well priced window film that he was happy with. The bus came out looking very sharp.

I started to use a household window tinting at one point, but decided against it because it was partially reflective, and in looking up my state's l aws on window tinting, reflective tinting is not allowed (although I don't think the law is enforced very strictly based on what I've seen on some cars around here).

Do find that other thread. It was fairly recent, and the link was a good one.

...other than that, I look forward to learning from your experience!

I've done it, here is the link to the thread where I have some pictures and a link to the place where I got the tint.

Eric, I could be wrong and it would not be the first time. I see a lot of stick and staple RVs with the back window mirror tinted. I get the idea window tint laws may not apply to RVs.

I used the same stuff from Concord Films that Glock17 used and it worked very well.
Took a few windows to get the hang of it, but is pretty straight forward.

Tried the kind from the hardware store that sticks on by without adhesive first, but it was pretty thick and made everything hazy. The stuff from Concord is thin and is pretty much like a factory tint, doesn't distort the view through the window.
