When customers roll into LG Customs with their favorite auto, the technicians unroll tinting film and apply it to the windows using precision tools, including the noble squeegee. They do this not only to enhance the car's appearance, but also to improve the glass's safety and protective features. With professional tinting film properly installed, windows block up to 99% of the sun's UV rays while reducing heat and preventing interiors from fading and cracking. The crew also knows that tinting film adds a level of shatter resistance, holding the glass together during an accident or when transporting troupes of operatic sopranos.
Claiming licenses from the state of California, the technicians at this three-location outfit help vehicle owners obtain hassle-free smog certifications.

As part of the California Department of Motor Vehicle’s Business Partner Automation Program, the staff also completes common DMV services, such as vehicle registration and license renewals so drivers can remember their eye color.
