All windows tinted

Got the fronts matched to the back glass and tinted the windshield 50% with a darker sun strip. I was iffy about the windshield but I'm glad I did it. You can see out great at night and it keeps the car so much cooler especially as temperatures go up here in FL.

Still got to hardware the radar, and install a few interior LEDs and reverse lights. Then I'm thinking of powder coating the wheels black and ditching some chrome.

Here are some pics!

Re: All windows tinted

Looks great! I'm getting my front sides tinted soon.

Are you hardwiring into your rear view mirror? I just purchased an Invisicord wire but I'm not sure how to remove the cover to access the mirror harness.

Yea I'm doing the same thing, here is a good thread to help you.

WK2 Radar Detector - Mirror Power Tap

Pretty much you just need to pull down on the black part like in the picture, and the whole assembly will come down. I messed with it just to try before my invisicord comes and once you get it off it is pretty straight forward after that. Kind of sketchy though as it seems like it might break, but it shouldn't. The connectors look a little different on the 14' but the colors you want to tap are the same.

Re: All windows tinted

That looks amazing! Now I gotta get the front tinted 50%. I got the sides matched to the rear, but never thought of doing the front, but after seeing your pictures I'm sold!

Re: All windows tinted

I love the look but I don't think I could do my windshield. I would be affraid of vision problems at night. But it would be nice to have the heat rejection properties

Don't they make a clear film you could use instead of a tinted one? That way you could have the heat rejection and keep visibility at night.

Re: All windows tinted

Wow, i really like the look of the tint on the windshield! It's illegal to tint the windshield in MA but so is any tint under 35% and i've always had lower...

That would be really nice. Maybe a ceramic film at 70% or something??
