Thanks for posting...so What do you all think, to tint or not tint GTV-6 windows. What really brings out the design?
In most cases, I think tint is the way to go, but there are exceptions like this:



Tinting that would be a crime!

Great pininterest by the way. I'm thinking in order to bring out the windows, there should be a huge difference in color from the body. If the whole car is all one color, you really can't see that there is thought behind the windows.

Thanks! Every time a see a new GTV6 pic I'll add it- so stay tuned!

I think the white/silver/gray cars look great with dark tint.

Red can go either way.

Most of the black cars look good not tinted.

BTW- I know it's not a factory color, but that yellow one is pretty cool!



So basically- I agree, just remember that there are always exceptions...

I did mine more to help save the interior from baking, but like it both ways.
That's a great point! Down here in South Florida, I guess I would go max tint no matter the paint color.

Of course, that doesn't apply to my Spider- if it's not raining, the windows are down! :)

BTW Hydro- beautiful car in either tint!

You're most welcome and great Pinterest Board!
My garage? Thanks, yeah they are a good bunch, LOL - I guess I'm a flaming automotive liberal, embracing all that cultural diversity! I gotta find some political slogans to spoof "Cars we can Believe in!". ? :grin2:

76... Is that the original factory red on your GTV6? My next GTV6 project will be red. I've been looking over red cars on the street, trying to find a best shade. Some look great in the correct light, but 'pink out' when the shadows or light changes. I think I've found 3 that hold up under lighting changes. But, depending on what's on your car... I may add one more to my list.

Hoping for a strong red, with just a touch of orange in it. Perhaps a flame red vs an apple red. Before committing to any, I'll make a few sample panels to compare side-to-side, and review them at various times of the day, set at different angles to catch the light differently.

Yes it is, and original stripe kit too. Zero rust and kept in great condition by previous owners, so the color it accurate. A tad darker, less orangy than Porsche red is my impression.

Cheers!

Thanks Art ! Now I have a fourth red to add to my list. I had a factory red GTV6 in the past. But guess I remembered it as being even closer to 'apple' than 'flame red'. Will reconsider that option now.

German cars can be a little heavy handed on colors. I like to see things progressing in 3 stages of 'read'. If you see a car coming at you from a distance, your first read should be 'that's a car' Second, it's a Porsche. And thirdly, 'it's red'. On many of the Porsche reds... your first read is 'RED, RED, RED!!!'. Then the rest follows. :- ) Don't want the color to be the overpowering dominate theme in the overall picture.
