I think if I get mine done, I'll already have the rear deck and third brake light removed to tint the entire back window. I'm sure it'* impossible get all the way down with the light there.
It'* dueable. I have NO IDEA how they did it on mine, but they did when I got my tint.
i removed everything on the deck and it was still a pain for me to get it smoothed out

(c) Any person required for medical reasons to be shielded from the
direct rays of the sun and/or any person operating a motor vehicle
belonging to such person or in which such person is an habitual

condition involved, and the minimum level of light transmission
required. The commissioner shall only authorize exemptions where the

medical conditions prepared by the commissioner of health pursuant to
subdivision sixteen of section two hundred six of the public health law.
If such such exemption is granted, the commissioner shall make a record
thereof and shall distribute a sufficiently noticeable sticker to the
applicant to be attached to any window so shielded or altered pursuant
to such exemption.
(d) The commissioner may test any window for a person who has been
charged with violating this subdivision. If such window is found to be
in conformity with this subdivision, a small label attesting to the
conformity shall be affixed to the window tested.
(e) On and after January first, nineteen hundred ninety-two, no person
shall manufacture, sell, offer for sale, equip or operate a motor
vehicle in this state in violation of the provisions of this
subdivision, except that a person may operate a nineteen hundred
ninety-one or earlier model year vehicle without violating this
subdivision if the windows on said vehicle were in conformity with this
subdivision as it existed on December thirty-first, nineteen hundred
ninety-one.
(f) The commissioner shall make such rules and regulations as he shall
deem necessary to carry out the provisions of this subdivision.

16. The owner and operator of any motor vehicle operated in violation
of the provisions of subdivisions eleven and twelve shall be guilty of a
traffic infraction. In case of the violation of such subdivisions by any
common carrier or person operating under a permit issued by the public
service commission (or other authorized body or person), said permit
shall be revoked, or, in the discretion of the commissioner, suspended
until the provisions of such subdivisions are satisfactorily complied
with.

Get a Dr note for the tint for UV sensitivity and you will not get a ticket for it.

im actually going to try to get the rear window redone. im not happy with him going around the 3rd brake light, it just looks like ***. plus, its not one sheet of tint, i can see the break from the rear-view mirror.
i took out the rear seats and rear deck the other day and did some deadening there. its gonna stay like that until the tint is redone


oh, im aware of the nys tint laws. the staties arent seen too often by me, and the sheriffs dont give a damn


and i should have enough cash for some chrome next summer, but i think id rather save up to move out of the parents place instead
