Re: Do you guys think this is too black??

Actually, that is bad ass. Note that I say this even though I went lighter on my tails.

Is that Lamin-x? Nicely done.

How did that go? I mean difficulty wise, scale of 1-10. And, was it the first time you had done something like this?

Did the VHT indicate a light transfer rating, i.e. 30% or something like that?

As I posted previously, I tinted mine with a film tint (Rvinyl) and it didn't turn out so great (edges started to peel almost immediately). So, I rec'd a refund and I am going to have them spray tinted. I was thinking of sending mine out to Daniel or Jon, but heard there is a local place so I'm gonna check them out this weekend.

The film tint I used was dark smoke which blocks 33% of the light... the light smoke version blocks 13% of the light.
