I'm getting the windows tinted on my car and need to know how to get the little chrome latch lock off the very front triangle shaped window on my 67 Camaro?

Thanks

There is a little expansion pin in the hole that needs to be either pushed through or pulled out. If I remember correctly, once its out, you can turn the latch and pull it off. You may need to apply some pressure to the outside piece (think of it like a nut and its bolt). When I got my car, I replaced mine as they were old and nasty. The hole was so filled with grime I had to WD-40 out the grime to see in there, then push the pin one way, then when some was exposed, pull it out with pliers. They're almost as much fun to put back, as you need to compress the pin to get it back in the hole.

be sure to let the tint dry completely (about 2 weeks) before you put it back on. otherwise the tint will bubble there.

Man Mark 2 weeks ?? I go and get my tint done in Mexico .. only a 15 drive for me ... , but I would'nt dare take the camaro there .. only little daily beaters.

But I could get the tint put on there .. while we walk and drink , eat ... go pick up the car or truck .. cross the border and roll down the window to speak to the Customs Agent .. then roll that baby back up ... and never bubbled or wrinkled on me . But of course I would'nt do that unless I really had to roll down the window ... Dont want them to think I have Weed or Coke in there ! :sad:

two weeks for full dry time. 1 week if it is hot and sunny where you are. less than that, you are taking your chances. i wouldn't waranty the job if they did it sooner.
the vent window has a lot of pressure against the tint. if you turn it and it is not 100% dry it will move causing bubbles.
but i only tinted windows for about 8 years. i may be wrong.
