another trick is opening up the front window opposite the side of the cop.
Example, if hes on your drivers side, roll down passenger side.

2nd time I got it tinted, lmao I rolled the passengers side halfway down by accident. I was about to flip. Saw bubbles and all that but after 2 days. She was fine.
2-3 days to make sure the film adheres to the glass.

Get it done @ speedworld. Down @ queens boulevard. Great service and they tint your windows all the way to the edge! Plus you can chat it up with the owner, he owns a SRT8 (hennessy).

I'm thinking of getting the windshield done. An idea from a fellow member (nifty) was to tint it 50% and have a 5% windshield strip over it. So it has sort of an illusion that you just have a dark stock windshield. I plan on doing this come fall. 140$ though.. haha

Re: Stock rear tint %?

Winshield tinting is a bit tricky. I did want to do it but the rain sensors and high beam video are a thing i dont want to get wet. A good tint place wont do it because of the electronics.

Also, I did mention this in a previous thread but i found a great tint place in suffolk LI that does tints and custom Lamin-X tails and headlights:

Underground Tinting and customs

1566 Ocean Ave # 1
Bohemia, NY 11716
(631) 244-8468

Owners name is Rich. Great guy, tell him you know me. hes done all of our Subarus (i owned a WRX before the jeep). well worth the trip.

Re: Stock rear tint %?

I have spray tint painted tails by Daniel.


But it also depends on the grade of tint film. Sometimes the titanium coated tint has a silver undertone to it.

I must visit this magical tintint place you speak of. LOL I used to live in Bohemia but I think that would be ronkonkoma on that side of Lakeland on ocean ave. I got my tint from Savage on Rte 112 in medford. They do a great job and have done all my cars in the past.
