Re: who has gone down to 5% tint?

I know EZY (Paul) has done really dark tint also Brad 08Hemi they have added layers as well ... the rear factory being 18% I would stick with 20% upfront to even it out and make it flow just my thought

Re: who has gone down to 5% tint?

I laid 20% on all side windows (even the rear ones already tinted) and 5% over top the factory tint on the back glass. It's a little dark, but I love the privacy.

Re: who has gone down to 5% tint?

I went with 5% over the factory (it’s dark) and 20% on the front windows going to get the windshield done with 35% in the near future, had 20% on my f150 all the way around including the windshield and it was pretty dark.

Re: who has gone down to 5% tint?

I have 5% all around and love it, ultimate privacy! As others mentioned night driving is more of a task now lol but its a tradeoff I was willing to deal w/ for the privacy/safety!

Re: who has gone down to 5% tint?

I have 20% in the front and thinking about going down to 15%. I have another 20% Tint layed over the rear windows on my WK. Like said, it's a bit harder to reverse until I get those HID Reverse Tails!
