    Hi,
    I'm trying to find a suitable product to cover a clear glass door to a very dark tint to hide the gear, but allow the IR remotes to operate.

    the size is approx 65cm x 125cm, I've tried using the film used in car windows, but its extremely difficult to use on a large area.

    any ideas... :lease:

    ...I would check Halfrauds or a local Car window tinting company - even your local car parts shops will have I would expect....

    You can expect to find either a can of spray or film that you apply with water....

    Should not cost much...

    i agree with Dj black. but would say use the film, as you get an even tint and its easier to apply, also should you wish to remove its a lost easier than the spray.

    We frosted our front bay with window film from a glazing company.
    It wasn't that pricey at around £30 for about 3 metres by 1.5m and wasn't 'dead easy' to apply but we managed it without bubbles etc.
    Give a couple of glaziers a call and see if they have a tinted version?
