Re: All windows tinted

That looks awesome, I would have never thought to do the windshield either. Your choice, but I love the chrome with the black.

Re: All windows tinted

Having an issue and hope you guys can help. I had my 2 front windows tinted today and I wanted an exact match to the back ones. The shop said they don't have a 20% film so I called another shop and got the same story. They put on a higher % tint which brings it down to about 23%.

I'm not happy with the results. What do you ask for if you want an exact match to the back windows? Thanks in advance.

It may be difficult to match the back windows because the windows already have a slight factory tent. Its not much probably 2 or 3% maybe more. So theoretically if you add 20% tint on top of the 3% the total tint would be 23%. My suggestion would be to go slightly lighter than the front, it would look much better than darker in the front

Re: All windows tinted

I did 20% on the front and it's a close enough match for me. The rear windows are still slightly darker but it's not very noticeable. I think it was mentioned a while back that 18% is dead on but I can't find the thread.

Re: All windows tinted

Suntek CXP18 is also a very close match. Remember that each manufacturer and film line has different properties/color shades, so you can't always just go by the percentage.
