Re: Tinted the Windshield!

Can somebody post a pic of what it looks like looking out of the windsheild that is tinted?

I've thought of this a lot. My eyes are very sensitive to light and I wear sunglasses in a tinted jeep and it's still tough on my eyes.

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

With 80% tint, it is nearly impossible to tell the tint is there (aside from the slight color shift issue I mentioned earlier). YMMV for something like 50% or darker...

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

Ok, I went to the tint shop today to get my WK2 tinted.
Here is some information for the guy who want to go and do things knowing what to ask for.
The back doors, side windows and back window has from factory a 20% tint. 20% light goes thru. It was measure by the machine in the shop.
The Front doors and windshield have from factory already 4% filter. Meaning that anything you put in those three pieces of glass you will need to compensate by 4% less light goes thru.
I install in my car 35% tint in my front doors and windshield and the machine measure it at a 31 %. To be legal here in Puerto Rico has to be 35% including plain glass filter so I needed to be on 40% tint to end up in 36% tint to pass the local police specifications and get a seal of approval by them. Right now I will be pushing it.
Will have photos of how good it ended looking.

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

Thanks Guys. I like the look a lot and wonder if it will help ease the light coming in.

I can tell a huge difference even with 80% (44% TSER). The wood grain steering wheel is noticeably cooler after sitting out in the sun and the sun is no where near as how on my legs when shining through the windshield.

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

I can tell you that it feels goooood inside now. Plus the Air conditioner is working a lot less and more efficient.

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

That is a plus. I will possibly give it a go. I have to see. I may go with a very light (80%) because it is very dark where I live and with 20% on the front's, its hard to see at night.

Re: Tinted the Windshield!

IT is only about $65.00 to do it. Why not? AT least that what it cost me with lifetime warranty.
