Hi,
so i just got my tint done, i love it, but... whenever i come out 2 my car in the morning, and even around lunchtime today, the entire front windsheild is covered with condensation on the inside. does anyone have this problem? is it fix-able? i know it must just be because the other windows are all tinted, which prolli makes all the moisture build up on da front windsheild, cheers

Use a good windscreen cleaner and try that no fog crap.

I have a 98 landcrusier which every window fogged up like crazy, untill i cleaned them and used that antifog s**t. (much easier to use on a HJ75 crusier)

if you are running your heater you may have a leak in your heater core inside the heater box... i had an xf with a split heater core and had condensation on my screen constanly.. mabe be worth getting the cooling system pressure tested..

try cleaning the window properly.
a quick tip is use a moist shammy to remove the oily film layer that probably exists, then apply some windex a wipe clear with a cloth. (fluffy towel works well)

The work ute fogs up like a mofo, toyota hilux, on a cold day the windows get wet.

My subaru did the same too, but not quite as bad.

The ford wasnt so bad, unless there was some heat in there somewhere *wink wink*
