Default New tint on the "Streak" !

The front doors and rear window are 35%, and the rear doors are 20%. I really wish i hadn't gone for the 20 in the back, and am thinking about having it redone with 35. Otherwise, i like it I paid, i mean the other guy'* insurance paid, $150 for it.

i personally hate when people have different % of tint on large cars, i think that it looks ok on a coupe, but really bad when done to one of out cars, I would just do 35 or 20 the whole way around

I went org w/ 35% for my 91.... but it was too light.... I lowered/increased (depending how you look at it) to I think 15% and it'* just right.

I now run 15% on both my rides.
