i think back then he used solargard on my car. that was like 2007 though. still looks as good as new. he just does it in his garage. His place is near 1st ave Renfrew around T&T neighborhood. Clearly he is not into webpage designing so don't let it discourage you.

larry did my accord today, did the rear windows for $160, took 2 and a half hours, when I got there he spent another 20 minutes trying to fix something that I couldn't even tell what was wrong, now let's see if it'll last

Larry FTW. My previous car was tinted by him back in 2004. Even in 2011 the tint still looks great. No fades, no purple hue, no bubbles. He is still doing the tint in his garage, near Renfrew T&T supermarket.

No. If you want you can hang out in his garage. Watch him do the work. Or you can go shopping at T&T, or enjoy some awesome cheap dimsum at the place across.

We do tint too

3M, Johnson and Madico films. None of the crappy stuff that'll fade or peel.

I had my tint done at N Motion. Only problem is I noticed that on my rear passenger side window from rolling it up and down there are now 4 grooves in the tint . They do not go through but if you run your nail across them you can feel it. And from the driver seat inside during the day you can see it. I guess there was some kind of dirt in there but should they not have cleaned it out first?

Head on back and let them know, they'll take care of it.
