02fordsvt I don't know if you can remove it but it's worth a shot.

calebstubstad Wait i do, i'm going to try and scrape it off with a razor or something, see if I cant make a flush surface for the tint to stick to

calebstubstad I'm not even sure I have that dimpled thing. Lol. How did you remove it then?
11-21-2012 06:57 PM
02fordsvt I did mine inside like you planning on doing. The biggest problem with it is that the tint lifts of the dimpled area above the mirror and around the edge, but it doesn't really bother me. Here's what it looks like.

TerryB I've done that. But I buy a matte black roll for about $8.00 at Michaels Craft store. It hasn't faded at all and I just redo every couple of years. It takes about 20 minutes to redo it.

calebstubstad only problem there is scraping ice in the winter, as I park outside. and if it's covered in frost i'd be afraid of hitting it with the metal scraper and tearing it to shreds

TerryB I did the outside of mine with about 8-10" of vinyl, then did a small strip of tint inside. That way, I didn't have to worry about the mirror anchor.

calebstubstad I do appreciate the snow jokes though lol. But it's funny because it's 50 degrees right now, and no snow, and almost december

calebstubstad I'm considering tinting my entire front glass to like 50%. The glare in winter is bad, the glare in summer is worse, and theres more d-bags with hids in stock headlights than there are snowflakes in your average blizzard. but for now i'm just doing an 8-10 inch strip on the top, and the mirror is like 6 inches down so I need it off to complete this task lol

Wait. This^

I thought you where removing it entirely. The mirror comes of pretty easy with a little mount left behind.
