    Window tinting.. 35% vs. 20%

    Does anyone have pics of 35% and 20% tint?? Maybe even on a Black Supra??

    I'm thinking of tinting the windows on my Black on Tan F-150.

    Thanks

    I must have 100% tint then because I can't see jack shit from the outside!



    playin. actually I have no idea the tint % on my car. (previous owner) but it's pretty damn dark and an unfortunate shade of purple looks ok though.

    ...LOL! I suppose I'm dislexic when it comes to buying the right car with the right transmission, huh?

    the lower the % the darker it is..it's measured by % light coming thru...
    your 100% means no tint
    20% is just slightly darker than 35% depending on your interier...I had 35% in one of my cars and you can see everything inside from the outside and i had dark interior!
    so if you have tan interior i would suggest the 20%

    looks like 5% or 2 1/2%. i only say 2 1/2% becuase i know that most that dark is a violet color, instead of black/grey. however, 2 1/2% makes it damn near impossable to see outside, even during the day... i know im having trouble seeing with the 5% i just put on.
    This is my signature, There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My signature is my e-penis, it isn't my life. I must master it as I must master my wildest dreams. My signature without me is useless. Without my signature, I am just fine.

    am i the only one that has a full tinted windshield. ?? most people dont even know that it is tinted. so far cops havent bothered me due to the whole glass is done instead of a 1/3 or 1/2 the front like most do.when the whole glass is done it is hard to tell if it is tinted. there is a slight glare that keeps from seeing in but doesnt give away that it is tinted..im just curious to know how many others have this done also.

    My winshield is tinted too. I'm not sure the darkness though. All the side used to be tinted 5%, but now just the rear and to little back windows are 5%. The drivers and passengers are now 20%. I have gotten hasseled about the tints before, but not the for the winshield, they dont seem to notice it. Heres a picture, sorry for the quality, I just snapped it with my phone here at work.

    I think HyBoost has his front windsheild tinted as well. Looks sick.

    Zylo, have considered bronze tint for a tan interior? I think that goes better with a tan interior then your traditional black tint.

    Might want to check with local regulations before you tint your windows.I think most places are 30%
    is legal anything lower is not. 35% is ok but I think 20% is going to look too dark because the color of the truck.
    just my .02 cents

    I'm going to go with the 35% tint to match the factory rear tinting.

    I found someone local that had 35% all around, and it looked great Thanks all!

    You people are crazy to tint your front windshield. I know the F-16 fighter pilot canopy look may look cool, but come on now, it's not going to look that great when its smacked against the tree or curb you won't be able to see. You may as well drive with a patch over one eye and sunglasses at midnight, hell that will look cool too..
