The Textured Surface Makes Tinting Exceedingly Difficult

No, I'm not talking about the space-traveling robot with the built-in virgin alarm. The little dots you see at the edge of many car windows are 3D, and the textured surface makes tinting exceedingly difficult. Often you'll see film that sticks to some spots but not others, and the result is a horrendous zig-zagging line. Sometimes, an installer will attempt to fill the blank spaces with glue so it looks filled in, which might work in the short term, but is more likely to fail down the road.

A better, but far more time-intensive solution is for the installer to take the time to sand the dots down. For a car that's already been tinted with car window film tint tools, what you want to see is an incredibly consistent line that goes right to the edge of the dot matrix.
