    In Ohio the front 2 windows have to be 50% or higher, the rest of the windows can be blacked out. As far as how it looks, thats a different story.

    It might not look good from the inside but from outside your windows will just be black, i dont see how it would look bad from outside?

    Re: Painting car windows all black

    Wow, lot of hate on this board. It's also strange that this board had no problem with painting the windows black a few years ago:

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

    But now you do. Talk about being h-y-p-ocrites!

    For the record, I don't care if I can see out of the rear, and rear and middle sides at all. It's hard to see out with black out tint at all, or any dark tint at night. So what's the difference if I paint them black? Plus California law simply specifies you have to have two side-view mirrors if the rear window is tinted (which I have), and allows 100% blackout in any window behind the driver.

    I want total privacy in the rear compartment. I don't want anyone to be able to see in (I also have a black shower curtain which I will hang behind the front seats so no one can see in from that position). I simply had the idea of painting it rather than pay $500 or so for two layers of tinting to achieve total black out. I don't have a lot of money, but the windows need to be blacked out in the next month. I also thought painting, as opposed to using tint, might be legal in all states.

    Thanks ewadz3006. I guess if painting the windows black is legal in all states, but if cops in other states pull you over anyway since they don't realize it is paint, that kind of defeats the purpose of using it. But it's still cheaper than tint!

    Also thanks mazdakid, SourDeez, brooklynjoy2008, and David0002 for your help. I like the idea of plasti-dip that you can peel right off!

    Re: Painting car windows all black

    I got told by a stsate police officer that it was legal in pa to have tint up to drivers head. As long as there is rear view mirrors. About a month later i get a fine in erie for tint. After telling him what the state boy said, he told me that if me and my state police friend want to learn about the law come talk to him.
    Then went back to the statey and told him that, he replied I'm sorry dude were not all aszholes but the city guy "is" wrong.

    Long story short, i tried to fight it but lost. Judge basicly told me i was doing something wrong and needed to pay restitution.

    Cops can and will wright you up for whatever they want. Weather it really is the law or not. Remember its your word against theirs, and you are a lowly scumbag law breaking piece of sh^t that deserves whatever they get.

    Wow, I just looked up the PA state law regarding tinting, and you are right. It is a big mess:

    PA Window Tinting Law, Statutes, and Regulations

    Glad I don't live in that state anymore. And thanks for the warning.
