Got my windows tinted :)

A Friend of mine works at a car customization shop... and he tinted mine for me on the side so it wouldn't be as expensive.. He does extremely good work... I love it.. He did my Geo storm too... but I dont have that car anymore...

This was my 91 Geo Storm gsi the first car he tinted for me..


But anyway heres the Jeep







He tinted over the backs factory tint.. since its inside the glass you cant really take it off but it made it darker... and then he tinted the front to match..

Thanks
Dillon

Looks good. I did the same 5 years ago when I got mine. I did it the week after I got it. 20% all around. I got to redo them because they started turning purple. What tint did he use? Bronze or smoked? It looks smoked. I used bronze to match the factory.

my original factory tint was smoked... and so thats what he used to match it and make the rear darker... It was llumar brand tint witch is supposed to be one of the best...

How dark is that? I have 5% all around, and its even darker in the rear because they did the same and tinted over the factory tint. Llumar is definately the way to go. Gangsta...

wow, whats the legal limit out in Indiana for tinting, here in Ohio, we can't do any lower than 50% on the front windows but some people do 35% and it looks fine and they seem to not get pulled over. My neighbor had 20% on his jag and got a ticket.

In NYC its 100% illegal for any tint. I only got tickets when I got pulled over for something else (ie speeding).

Looks good. I would like to get a tint eventually since my windows are as clear as day, but not that dark. But, I would rather spend my money on other stuff.

lol, cops, especially in my town seem to pull you over for just about everything. I was stopped at the entrance to a utility road on the side of a road for about 2 minutes reconnecting the ground to my amp. and the cop just had to pull in and run my information.

I do still plan on doing 35% tint on my front windows, is that about the factory spec on the rears?

Yeah Cops are bad out here too. I think I get away with it because its a truck and most of the windows are tinted out of the factory. I actually argued with a cop and won about my tints. He was *****ing about the rear tints being too dark (limo) and I told him trucks come factory with tint and pointed out explorers and such driving by. He let me go.....one in a million chance without a PBA card.
