As a police officer, Dan Kotlarek spent his spare time installing window tinting, a skill he had honed at numerous auto shops since he was 16 years old. His knack for the process eventually led him to found TNT Automotive Window Tinting, a member of the International Window Film Association.
Today, he leads factory-trained technicians who affix films to windows to block out heat and UV rays. They scrutinize a vast array of tints, choosing only high-performance, top-quality brands to add to the shop's selection. Serving both practical and aesthetic purposes, window films keep interiors cool and glare-free while heightening the car's image and shielding striped upholstery from Waldo hunters. The crew can further enhance buggies with services such as dent repair and paint protection. As techs make over vehicles, motorists can sip on free soft drinks, watch TV, or use the show room's complimentary WiFi.
