window tint on outside

I am thinking of using plexiglass windows for my side windows in my diablo but am turned off by the ease it is scratched. The scratch resistant stuff is more than I want to spend. Since I want to tint the windows anyway, I was wondering whether scratch resistant window tint could be applied to the outside of the windows for more protection. Would it withstand the elements. I figure the tint could withstand cleaning better than the plexi.

The window tint won't stand up to weather as much as the plexi. Im sure it would also scratch easier since it is just a thin peice of film. And to tell you the truth, plexi would stand up much better to cleaning than tint. If you use window cleaner on tint, it can ruin it. Beleive me, if you use the wrong window cleaner the tint will bubble up and be ruined.
