Tint Strip Help
I currently have my Front Windows at 30% tint. I do not currently have a tint strip yet on the windshield. I was looking in to getting one put on. If i put a 5% strip at about 6" will it make it windows darker in the front and help block out sun so it looks darker? Thanks
Please respond fast i want to try to get it done soon.

Re: Tint Strip Help
I had a 5% browl put on when I did my tint. It didn't make the front windows any darker. But then again i have 14% all around lol. There's still a lot of room for light to poor in under the strip. The main reason I got one is to block out the mid day sun. And i can report it does exactly that. I love that i never have to put my visors down. To make things a bit darker, u could tint the whole windshield. But thats a big no no with cops, at least here in MO it is.

Go for it. I have it. It's perfect for midday. Your windows will not appear darker.

Re: Tint Strip Help
My windshield has the black rain sensor on the inside. Can i put the tint around the box or will the liquid ruin the box and the electrical inside if the liquid from the tint is around it? I cant take it off but i want the strip so can i just cut it around the box and put it on or will it ruin it?

Re: Tint Strip Help
Thanks for the help but nevermind I guess. I just talked to my tint guy that I go to and he said he doesnt feel comfortable putting the tint on around the box because he doesnt want to risk damaging the electrical on the inside. He said one drop of water in it could hurt it a lot so I guess Im not getting it.

Get a new tint guy. My WK2 SRT8 w/s is tinted without issues and the rain sensor and all was left in place. Only took the rear view mirror off to tint.
