Default Tinted up!

So, the guy who owned this before me tinted the windows, lol.....Tinted OVER the back tint and tinted the front 2 plus the strip the legal limit of 32% or so......I like it dark, so I redid the front tint!












After....












muuuuchhh better!

I wish I would thought about it, but I got him to take the old tint off...I should just told him to tint over it!

Very nice. I had the fortune of the previous owner tinting my windows very dark too. Except he did the fronts too.

I'm jealous. never thought about tinting over the rear windows.
They changed our tint laws here. Now, any vehicle made after 2005 can't have front doors tinted more then 35%. We think it's because the state troopers tint theirs to 5% in the rears in the fronts @ 20% to masked the lights inside. All it did was make it easier to spot the UC cars. But here's the catch, if you buy an '05 without tint, you can darken them as much as you like and the police can't say anything. They really don't now unless you're doing something suspicious, then they use the tint law to pull you and check you out.

Looks great! Your fronts are darker than my fronts.

My ex-Saturn dealer used to tint all the better cars in his fleet. All 4 of my doors have darker tint with the back doors matching the cargo area glass.

I used to live in Sacramento. And when I had my Cutlass, I had 5% smoke in the rear and 35% broze in the front. Cops never said a thing about it.

lol thats the way it was up until the last couple months. my first fix it ticket was gunna be for my license plate and my tint but the guy asked me how much i paid for the tint. I said 270 i believe and he said DAMN and didnt write me a ticket for the tint and when i told him i was going to join the force in a couple years(which i am) he ended up signing off my ticket right after he printed it that was san jose police.
then a couple weeks ago a chp officer pulled me over for the same things but this time i got the tickets. came out to be 50 bucks. they raised the fix-it ticket price from 10 dollars to 25 dollars each

Thats the nice things about having out-of-state plates. when I was down there last month, I had a few cops get behind me and after about 2-3 minutes, they pulled away and didn't bother me.

If you know someone that lives in Nevada or Oregon, get your car registered there so the police won't say anything since they can't enforce the laws of another state.

Im not sure what the tint was that he put over the back. its dark as hell, I cant see out of it at night at all....the autodim mirrior doesnt even work!! i can turn it off and cant tell any difference!!.....I can look into it in the sun with my hands over my face and can barely see in it. Now i really wish Ida just let him tint over the tint that was already on it....
