How can optically clear(not hazy) window tint be applied such that it can be removed at night?

A transparent roller blind?

:-D

i thought of the roller blind. There are little ones with suction cups for cars. Blind is opaque with holes. This, iirc, is meant for backseat windows.

For front windows, better visibility is desired. Perhaps opaque blind can be replaced w transparent on same rollerr. Problem: dark plastic sheeting is available in optical clear , wIth water activated adhesive , or hazy stick to the glass sheet. Neither is exactly desirable for the rollerblind situation.

Front windows? I'd be worried about a temporary device coming loose all over the driver.

Personally, I'd say that the easiest and safest way to dim the light through the front windows would be to wear dark glasses.

i share that concerN about it coming loose. I use dark glasses, but heat is an issue. Tinted windows help with heat, but driving at night with dark windows doesnt sound like a good idea. Maybe theres something that blocks heat without being dark. UV and IR BLOCK.

thx for the research. Also for banter leading up to the crux. Visible light good. Hot light bad. Permanent heat block good.

Actually, judging by the last link, the best option is out of the reach of the hobbyist, because they embed the layer within the screen's laminations.
