    ah, i forgot about that 6". At some point i'd like to get everything but the windshield done, it would add a nice touch to my ride.

    Re: blacking out headlight and taillights.

    well i just looked up the laws and here it is as follows?:

    Non reflective tint can be used on the top 6 inches of the windshield.

    70% of light must come through on the front sides and back sides

    any darkness can be used.

    so if 70% of light must come through, does that mean i can only use 70% or 30%?



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    Re: blacking out headlight and taillights.

    haha i read that wrong.. Yes you can use 30%... my bad.
    in idaho we are only allowed to do 35% but i do 15% or lower and never get pulled over.... im sure you'd be fine doing like 20%

    sounds like to much of a pain in the balls lol. if it improved performance i would think about it but since it is just a "look nice" feature ill stick with stock.

    Re: blacking out headlight and taillights.

    Cops in your area may pull you over for having any tint on your front windows. I've been pulled over before for 35% on the front windows, which is like nothing at all. They claim either you can't have them tinted, or they are too dark, which due to your windows being tinted from factory a tad, will have the meter (god forbid the bring it out) show up as a darker percentage. Basically if you or your car look suspicious, it's a reason for them to pull you over. Happened to me twice on the way to work, both times were "warnings."



    Not even that dark either. So I'd say get the tint you want, maybe 35% on the fronts, darker in the back and roll with the front windows down as much as you can

    Hertz HSK 165s in the trunk > Alpine 3542
