Yeah, so I kept it legal this time. 5% on the back three. I had the same guy do it last time as the time before. He did a good job, but not as good as he did on the bonneville. The back window on the cavalier is a VERY difficult window to do.

FEEDBACK PLZ! (BTW, I don't wanna hear about how I should have tinted the front windows too :( I would if I could.)

Looks good.

Dude I know used to have a Cavi just like that but he put 2 silver racing stripes down it. Then he hit a deer and sold it.

I like that color blue and the tint job appears to be good quality from the best I can tell from the pics.

I forgot to add, and I don't have a pic of it, but he had a 4" strip left over, so he put it at the top of my windshield

Looks pretty good but I think you should have gotten a light tint on your front windows just to balance out the looks some & keep it legal.

Looks weird with the fronts not tinted. I would have left it alone.

Yeah, you can spray paint the rear windows and it would be legal, but nothing on the fronts.

Yeah, I lived in Michigan for a while and depending on the town/city you live in, the cops can be real sticklers about the tint.

My son bought a Florida car and brought it up to Michigan. It had tint all around. He got three tint tickets in one week before he took it off the front windows. All different cops too.

So, I know why you had to do what you did, Logan.
