Window Tint background?
First off let me say I have done a search on this topic here using the search function and also just googling on the web.
I want to know if anybody has had any luck applying window tint to the back of an up-and-running tank.
My tank is rimless, about 25" long and 18" high, and about 7" from the wall so I think I can reach everything back there just fine. What I am worried about is that in my experience with any kind of application of film on glass, a good deal of soapy water is used and i would be afraid of getting soapy water in the tank. I also read some folks use vegetable oil instead of soapy water, but I don't want any of that getting in my tank either.
So has anybody ever applied a window film tint to their tank after it was filled and running? And if so....what is the trick and what do you want to look out for?
Should I just try painting with a foam brush instead?
