    Re: window tint: how dark and where to get done

    I have Limo on the back three windows, and I think my front two side windows are slightly illegal. But Im not sure, and the shade strip on the front is Limo.

    I paid almost $300 dollars for the entire thing.

    Re: window tint: how dark and where to get done

    i have 5% on the back 3 and 20% on the front 2...it is a pain tryin to back up at night though, i have to row down the side windows somtimes so i dont hit anything...the darkness of the interiour can also play a role in how much u can see in the car at certain times of the day.....a good combo to go with would be 20 in the back 3 and 35 in the front...

    Why do you have to be a ******* and generalize like that?

    i used to know a guy that tinted profesionally, he liked to use baby oil. never tried it but he said it would slide better. and cut it in strips???NO WAY! that looks so ghetto IMO. if you have a complex curve in your window you have to use a heat gun when you shape it to the outside to "mold" it to the contour of your window.

    Re: window tint: how dark and where to get done

    I don't remember what the legal issues for window tinting is in Arkansas, but I just got a window tint job for my truck. I have 15% on sides and rear window. I wanted 15% just b/c I wanted to be able to see what I was doing whenever I'm backing out of a drive way. A lot of my friends have 5% and it's really hard to see what you are doing unless you roll down the windows to look out your side mirrors. For the most part I think this tint is a good deal, people can see the outline of a person whenever its day time but at night you can't see in it. I paid 86 dollars for my tint job, and a lifetime warranty, and no complaints. Hope my input helps you.

    Re: window tint: how dark and where to get done

    wait wait lemme get this right, some of you paid 300????? and some of you tint your windows yourself?? you guys are crazy

    i'm glad i live in cali, i got mine 15% all around lifetime warranty 145. and they changed laws here so depending on city, usually you just have to pay a fine instead of removing the tint and getting it signed off. however, if you do get cited by a city that requires you to remove it, the place i got it at will remove it for you till you get it signed off and reapply. that's what i call service.

    and why would you get 0.875% or whatever on just one window?

    Re: window tint: how dark and where to get done

    i paid US$10 for my precut tint sheets. i originally had 15%, and applied over the existing one. i applied it myself using soapy water and plastic ruler sorta thingy. people from outsdie can't see. The trunk area has THREE layers, so even with interior lights, you still can't see the audio stuff from the side.

    I cut out the sides to view the rear mirror better (a la WRC cars).
