Tinted Windows & Windshield

This past weekend I took my GC to the tint shop I've used for years to have them match the front side windows. Because the Overland has a leather dashboard I also decided to have a clear tint added to the windshield that reduces the heat by 40%. I'm hopeful this will help preserve the leather over the long run.

I really really like the look of the GC with the matching tint across the whole thing. Very sharp.

Re: Tinted Windows & Windshield

Thanks J13! I had posted it as the image link initially and it wouldn't work. I'm at my office and I think they're blocking certain buttons/functions.

Re: Tinted Windows & Windshield

They put on Pinnacle on the sides. I can't remember what they put on the windshield. I'll contact the guy later today and see if he can give me the specifics.

Re: Tinted Windows & Windshield

Damn, that looks sexy. I talked to my local tint shop and they said that because of Minnesota laws, they couldn't match it exactly. I've heard the backs are 20% but Minnesota limits you to 50%...
