Strictly legal, 38%. UV/IR. I did the sunroof (contrary to popular belief, it will NOT cause the sunroof to shatter from trapped thermal energy). They gaurantee it.

Hello noobs. The tint is cut and trimmed to the OUTSIDE for the shape, then applied to the inside.

That'* done to SHAPE it to the natural shape of the glass, to prevent ripples when applied to the inside. After the heating, shaping, and trimming is done, the mylar backing is peeled, and the tint is re-applied permanently on the INSIDE.
