I know I put pictures of this up in the other thread, but you always gotta have a dedicated thread too right?

Anyway, here is the before and after shots.





Now it'* 15% all the way around, with a nice deep strip on the front glass. I'll take a pic of that tomorrow when it'* light out. Only cost me $100 since I've taken 3 vehicles to this guy now.

Thanks!

Yeah, for 2 windows plus a huge strip it'* not a bad deal. He hooked me up on the Bonne too. $220 for all windows with a strip.

If you're ever in the Northwest Florida area let me know and I'll give you his address.

I wish I could be in that area. Especially this time of year. haha. The first thing I do to my next vehicle will more than likely be tint. My friend got his Mazda 3 done, 40% in front, 15% (i think) in back, for about $190 by a local shop. I hate how just having the rear done looks, but its the law here. Fortunately, they're not very strict about it.

I'm way dark by Georgia law, 15% too dark actually. Luckily they profile, so if you're white you don't have to worry too much.

Girlfriend was driving the Bonne and got pulled over. Once the cop saw it was a white girl, and not whatever he was expecting, he let her go.

Haha That'* actually pretty funny. I got pulled over one night because my car was "modded" (HID'* and white led'* in my licence plate bulbs).. the officer tried saying that I didn't use my turn signal when I clearly did. I saw him long before he saw me, thanks to my HID'* haha

Here, you can go as dark as you want in the back, but absolutely nothing in the front. Looking at the new Lancer Evo'*, it looks like they have around 50% in the front. Half of the cars that have tinted windows here have the fronts done. Usually around 50%

In most states on trucks/vans/SUVs you can go as dark as you want on the back, but the front is regulated. In Georgia it'* 32% on the front for my truck, and 32% all around for my car.

Not as bad as California. Look up those laws.

From what I could find, 70% up front and any in back? They're probably a lot more strict about enforcing it.
