    Well, I know when the tint guys are cutting the tint to fit the glass they apply it to the outside first to see where the line is where the glass ends. Then they remove it and put the tint inside.

    they're just trying to be Unique..

    Really tho.. the only reason I could see applying tint to the outside of a window is if you were to tint the inside as well. That way it would almost totally darken the window. Seems too fragile to apply to the outsideto me, but who knows.

    Don't see why you couldn't layer the tint on the inside. That outside layer will start to fade into that nasty purple color in no time, not to mention get so scratched up. Silly left coasters.

    tint gets that color of blueish/purp from not using "tint safe cleaner" = ammonia free, and there right coasters JK JK
