Re: Pics of the Windshield Tint
I am a tinter over in WI and I can tell you that around here you would not get away with 20% or even 35% on the windshield. One of our local state patrols is a tint nazi so I remove film quite a bit for people so I'm sure he'd have no problem spotting those. It does look good though. I have a 5% strip on the front of mine right now down to the bottom of the mirror bracket but going to tint the whole windshield soon with Llumar brand 80% film. Its called Air80. Nobody will know it's really there but you and it will block just about the same amount of heat.
As far as the dots around the windshield, yes, you will end up with that silver spotty looking border because as the film dries, its not able to stick to glass in between dots. The only way to combat that is to A) Paint that border with some black enamel or B) Sand down the dots.
