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 car cool with this Groupon: for $99, you get window tinting for a four-door sedan at Mike's Tint Shop in Orange (a $199 value).
Established in 1989 by owner-operator Mike Covin, Mike's Tint Shop exclusively caters to owners in need of glass enhancements, graphics, tints, and accessories. The shop mitigates marauding heat and UV rays with LLumar tint films cut by computerized equipment and installed by seasoned technicians. Available in five different shades, tint films are fitted and tailored to meet the precise size and shape of the car's windows. Once installed, the tinted windows protect drivers from the sun’s harsh rays, minimize interior temperatures, and heighten the car's confidence so it can resume rolling its eyes at tow trucks.
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.
