Re: Window tinting?

Ya, I figured i'd go light vs not at all. Don't want a ticket. While the tint I have may get me a ticket, the chances are lower than if I went down to to %35 or %20.

I made my own hardware to install the fairing. Wasn't to bad but was a some work. I had a mass whistle with the snowboard rack that went awaywhen I installed the fairing. There is still some noise but its not as bad. When you open the sunroof it gets noisy still but Im not sure what it was like the before the fairing.

I have a post out there sthat shows how I made the metal brackets from Home Depot scrap metal.

Re: Window tinting?

HEADSHOCK: Thanks for the pics. Although I like the look of the matching front back 20% tint I've been thinking of also going with the legal tint for the fronts. It's enough to give a better than stock look w/o the hassles of getting pulled over, stripping the tint for inspection, etc. Your pics gave me a good perspective.

Re: Window tinting?

I dont understand dark tinting your front windows, maybe if I was driving a Yugo and did not want anyone to see me it would make sense?

Re: Window tinting?

Just had my 2011 Laredo front windows tinted with LLumar tinting at 20%, looks perfect. Pluse LLumar has a lifetime guarantee for the tinting. Not sure where your at but most places use LLumar or 3M tinting both with the same warranty, but with 3M it is more of a bluish tint.

Re: Window tinting?

I really want to get my front windows (driver and passenger) tinted to match the back, but I am having some trouble convincing them to let me get them. I'll be paying for them and all. I need some help to get some good excuses together. Any tips?

Re: Window tinting?

Latecomer to this thread... any suggestions on a great shop to have tinting done in North Georgia (prefer ITP Atlanta, but I'll venture outside the city if they're good)?

I really like this tint. Dumb question...but is this legal to tint the front windows? I thought a few people have said it's illegal, not sure.

Re: Window tinting?

Tint laws vary greatly from state to state. Check your states vehicle code. Typically you can find the info on your state's DMV website....

Great, and thanks. Just checked dmv + a few sites. Looks like I'm out of luck in my state (no tint allowed on front side or windshield). Could tint rear.

No tint is allowed on the front windows here where I live but we ALL do it anyway. I did mine 20% to match the rears. Its very unlikely you will get pulled over just because of window tint here. Getting pulled over for a sppeeding ticket or other violation is different unles you can roll the windows down before the officer sees them lol

Re: Window tinting?

I got 35% on the driver and front passenger windows. Lighter than the rear but still a good look. I california and it basically illegal but I haven't had a problem with the light tint in the past. Got them done for $45 and the clear bra, light covers, etc for $225. I got lucky, a friend took care of it.
