    Painting car windows all black

    Hi, I have a 2007 Toyota Sienna minivan and wanted to paint the back window and the two middle and rear side windows on each side opaque black (basically all windows behind the front driver seat). I want to do this instead of tinting since it will be cheaper, and perhaps legal in all 50 states?? I know complete black out tinting on these windows is not legal in many states (except it is legal in my state of California), but I am hoping opaque paint will be. I travel to different states a lot. I want complete black out for privacy purposes.

    So I have a few questions:

    1) Is painting your windows black (as opposed to tinting) legal in all or most states?

    2) Will the paint chip or flake off?

    3) Will the results look bad?

    4) Will cops mistake black paint for window tint in those states where it is illegal, and pull you over?

    5) Is paint hard to remove should I decide to take it off?

    Thanks!

    Seriously?

    Come on dude, don't be ridiculous. Of course it will look bad, you're painting your damn windows! Why would this be legal if black out tint is illegal in a certain state? The whole legality/illegality of tinted windows revolves around the amount of light it lets through. 0% light transmitted through is 0% light transmitted through. And I'd hope a cop would pull you over just to make you feel dumb for painting your windows.

    How about getting some black poster board and having a little arts n' crafts project. At least you could rip it off once you realize that anything but tint will look like complete shit.

    I guess you dumb f***s have never seen a cargo van. Some state allow the rear window of vans and trucks to painted/blocked whatever you want to call it.


    Try plasti-dip, other people have used this for their windows when they have a wall in the car and you can peel it of when you want to.

    Dipshit good luck seeing out of that. Tint is the way to go and he said paint btw not cover it in protective rubber.
