Glasscapes

I'm sure most of you have noticed these window coverings on the back window of a truck at some point in the recent past. Just curious if anyone has used them, how they hold up and how they are installed.

Thanks,
Greg

Re: Glasscapes

All of the ones I see running around town with them, they look really nice. They look like they'll hold up for awhile. I came across a site about a month ago that had bunches and bunches of different designs, I'll see if I can find it again for ya.

Re: Glasscapes

I'm not sure if I know what your talking about. Do you have any pictures? If it is what I think it is, I've been wanting to get one for a while, but I have tinted windows and it's already hard to back up at night.

Re: Glasscapes

i thought they were illegal, and i didnt start noticing them again until the last 6 months or so.... did a federal law change or what? i think they're nice looking for the most part, but i too can barely see backwards at night so it's out of the question. it would probably get torn up on a Bronco tailgate glass anyway, though i guess they could be put on the side windows of the top.

Re: Glasscapes

I think they are OK to put on the back and rear side windows because you can see right through them from the inside of the truck, but from the outside you can't see in. The link below will take you to there site, they have a bunch of designs available. But they don't say how they are installed, only that they go on the outside of the glass instead of the inside like regular window tint.

Re: Glasscapes

Re: Glasscapes

I cant be 100% on this - but I'd bet they go on the inside. I work at a sign shop where we do occaisonal vehicle graphics - those 'scenes' are (most likely) printed on clear vinyl, in reverse, then applied to the inside of the glass (just like tint).

Re: Glasscapes

privacy glass coating is on the inside, or did you not notice the bold red warning about cleaning insides of privacy glass windows with tissue paper in the owners manual.

Re: Glasscapes

They are PSA-pressure sensitive adhesive.

Heres some more,

should be ok for the power rear window, especially if your weatherstrip on the inside is in the condition mine is [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
