cut the tinting about 1mm under the dots. it will blend nicely into the dots.

if you wanna cover the dots...you're gonna have to put a vinyl strip over it or something. You can tint it but it will eventually fall off. I would carry it back to whoever tinted it and make them fix it. They should know better than to tint over the matrix

i had mine tinted by a place, and they just left the dot matrix alone. I'd rather have that than crappy tint on it, which ive seen on a lot of stangs.

Explain this to me man. I've heard of people using steelwool to the vinyl trick.

just take a razor blade and with a very steady hand, slice the tint film about 1mm (sorry, i am a scientist so i use metric system)--- 1/16" below the dot matrix. this will make the tint film stop just below the teflon coated dots
