Got pulled over because the cop said my front windows were too dark. Tn state law is 35% and he got his little meter out and said they were 8% so i got a $128 ticket and have to peel it off and go to court and show them its fixed

8% How can you even see through it? I drove a car with 10% and it was too much for me...

My ZJ has 5% on the back side windows, 18% on the two front windows, and 3.5% on the hatch window. That's what it all metered at at the shop that did it for me. Luckily, in Indiana, MPV vehicles aren't governed by tint laws. It is a hassle though. I can't see anything backing up at night. Even shaded trails are difficult should I need to reverse.

Friend of mine used to have a Lexus with 2.5% all around...looked sick and no one around here gets pulled over just for tints. Personally it's just unnecessary I plan on doin 15% all around but that could change so we'll see either way 20% and under looks black enough from the outside

I had no problem seeing though my front windows at all. I have had limo tint at 2.5% on my yota before all the way around and never had an issue.

My back window is at 5% and its kinda dark at night but i can still see through it. My 100w back up lights mounted on my rack on the back help with backing up at night if i need them.

Probably on the lugs. That'd be my guess. Hopefully the washers have tight tolerances. Otherwise they're going to possibly throw their wheels out of balance and cause some really odd tire wear.

Replaced the left side Headlight, Corner Light and Turn Signal Light housings with a set I bought on eBay. They were already somewhat banged up from a collision I had and a large piece of truck tire that was thrown into them from the road finished them off.

One of the lower headlight adjusters simply would not lock in. So I cut one of the receptacles out of the old unit with a Dremel tool and replaced the new receptacle with the old one. That did the trick.

Due to some damage from the collision, I had to fabricate a bracket to hold up the turn signal housing but it was no big deal.

It has been hesitating at times so I changed the spark plugs also, which seems to have solved the problem. They were two years old so it was time.

Next thing will be to remount the front fascia that was torn off in the collision. I have to fabricate a bracket to hang it on. That's the project for tomorrow.

No no lol no put washer on lugs

You put them on the steering stops so there is less turning radius when you turn the wheel to full lock.
