DIY tinted screen
« on: January 04, 2018, 18:04:57 »
Has anyone here ever experimented ( steady now ) with tinting a screen using the old car lens tinting spray?

Tinting is a bad idea, when you get to dusk the tint of the screen really obscures anything in the road- stay with clear. I have a tinted upper, I wish it was clear now.
In my defence, she did leave me unsupervised.

I tried a tinted screen and found it really distracting as it was reflecting the road back at me, like a rolling heads up display.
As others have said, don't bother.  :grin:
