bill... stock tint on my 95 was 83%... add your 35% over that and you are looking into the high 20'*... be warned...

i had looked into tinting my sunroof long time ago, but willwren told me not to.., and why cant you just pull the sunshade over it?

reguardless, looks pimp...

lemme know if you notice ANYTHING with the peel and seal.. it was more of a headg game to me i think

since i have the 00 ripped apart right now, im thinking about it

Legal limit here is 50%?

Looks great BTW!

Thanks for that link! CT > NY. I hated how the limit was 70% in NY. 35% is what I would do personally.

Bill I'll have to find out where you got that done at NEBF.

Haro..you know that Willwren...he told me to tint it...lol Tint guy told me I was actually only 1-2% over the limit in total. We'll see. My name isn't Andrew and I don't make a habit of being pulled over.

Astroroof, sunroof, moonroof... I got it..that'* all that matters!

The Onyx tint is intersting. My pics were later in the evening with light starting to fade. Clearly you can see straight through. Most of the time it doesn't look dark at all.

that'* what I was told. Also with the high recommendations of this guy...it'* nice.

highlander was up this weekend and saw it. his first words were...there'* no edge to the window. it'* perfect.

Which got me thinking..on lots of tint jobs you have a little edge at the top that isn't done.

Yes, that'* right. The first two tints I had done had that edge on the windows when you rolled them down. At the time I was told it had to be that way to avoid peel back. This latest one on my B'ville is perfect. You have to inspect it real closely to be able to tell that it isnt in the factory window itself.

I don't know if the tint film is better or just that maybe demand has brought about better installers.
