    The full windshield application in one piece for the Model X is not your typical app for the novice tint installer. This will take real tint experience to get the film laid down propey due to size and curvature.

    Here is the process with Spectra Photosync75. First the film needs to be heat shrunk on the outside in order for the film to conform to the extreme curves. Next we install to the inside DSC01562.JPG DSC01586.JPG DSC01589.JPG DSC01597.JPG

    DSC01736.JPG With the Model Xs massive windshield, there is only a handful of installers capable of installing window film to it. Search and ask for references as it will take a master tint installer to lay down properly.

    We put on Spectra Photosync 65 to the rears. You can't really tell since 65% is very light.

    I can't find any installers in Vegas with enough balls to take on a full windshield Photosync tint! (Maybe I need to look harder!) send me a pm please with an estimate and time frame if I decided to bring NightHawk back to the Mothership for a full windshield tint!

    The windshield on the X is one of the most difficult windshield to do in one piece. So it does take quite a bit of skill and experience to accomplish it. PM sent.

    I believe the closest Photosync Dealer to you is Extreme Autowerks (www.extremeautowerks.net) in Cerritos, CA. Great bunch of guys there and very knowledgeable of Teslas.

    Some more Model Xs in for full windshield with Photosync (done in 1 large piece - Not half way or 2 pieces) and the clearest paint protection film on the market: Clearguard Nano SR

    Contrary to what most tint installers say, the windshield on the X certainly can be done in 1 piece, but only a handful of very skilled installers in this industry can do it.

    I have read as many posts as I can find on the use of Photosync but I still have numerous questions that I hope someone can answer. I'm about to get a new windshield this week due to a crack which is why I have a renewed interest in this.

    1.) Can the Photosync be removed and re-applied if I need another future windshield replacement?

    2.) How much heat rejection does the factory tint on the back windows provide? Are our back windows purely a coloring tint without any of the heat rejection capabilities of Photosync and other similar products, or how much heat rejection is there? The back hatch alone is a huge piece of glass so I'd like to cover that as well if the factory tint isn't doing what this film would do for me.

    3.) Is the tint from the factory a film that is already on the inside of the back windows & hatch or is it part of the glass itself? Are there any issues or concerns adding Photosync to the back windows which already have the "factory tint"?

    4.) Finally, does the Photosync 75 for the front windshield cause any issues with polarized sun glasses?

    Thanks in advance!
