I've done a few tints and have got it down ok ish, my only let down is the white ring around the windows where the little black dots are on the windows, I can't seem to get it to stick well enough on these to prevent the white area.

Any ideas please?

Is it poss to get tint that you can see through from the inside, ie. does not block off any light inside the van - but no one can see in?
