    What is the best way to black out the car windows?!?

    Im building a wall in the back and id like to black out the car windows. Whats the best way to do this, id rather not do tint because im never going to have to see out anyways because of the wall. And its expensive. Could i use paint? I also could use vinyl but its hard to work with IMO. Woudl you recommend brushing paint on?

    spray paint, mask it off real good. Do thin coats so it doesn't run

    I saw a build on here a while ago where somebody did it in their van

    yup, spray paint... I used some black metallic paint on a fox body once and it turned out pretty **** nice.
    any paint should work, just do a few real thin coats before you do any wet coats...

    or spray truck bed liner/rubberized undercoating stuff would work too

    If it's just for the windows get something cheap. I'd go to walmart and get some. Just don't spray it on too thick or I think any spray paint will run on the glass

    plastic paint adhesive will help prevent the paint from spotting and running.

    Use the cheapest black spray paint you can find. Even if it runs, you wont see it from the outside. Just spray it on. Thats what I did on my van.
