When the inside of a car becomes too hot, the seats get uncomfortable, the steering wheel becomes too hot to touch, and the radio refuses to play anything but “Winter Wonderland." Keep a cool car with today's Groupon: for $99, you get window tinting for a four-door sedan at Mike's Tint Shop in Orange (a $199 value).
The technicians at Mike's Tint Shop truncate heat and UV rays with LLumar tint films cut by computerized equipment and installed by deft technicians. Tinted windows protect cockpits from the sun’s harsh rays, minimize temperatures, and deny entrance to harmful UV rays, all while heightening the car's image and giving it the power to roll its eyes at tow trucks without being seen. Through the use of computerized cutting technology, tint films are fitted and tailored to meet the precise size and shape of the car's windows, and expert technicians affix the sun-rejecting shades to the four-door car with professional accuracy.
Mike's Tint Shop
Since 1989, the founder of Mike’s Tint Shop has been augmenting car windows with his custom, computer-generated tints, which range from subtle dot patterns to flames and sports-team logos. His work has caught the attention of celebrities such as Hollywood heavyweight Verne Troyer, who played Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies, and whose Mercedes bears the company's namesake tinting work. Beyond tints, the shop offers LLumar paint protection, a nearly invisible coating that safeguards vehicles' bodies against stone chips, scratches, insects, and freckles. Technicians can also cleanse vehicles with hand washes and detail work, which ranges from wheel dressing to wiping out cup holders.
