so you've never driven over the speed limit either?.....

OMG I've seen this thread so many times.... the privacy glass from Ford is approx. 18%... it doesn't matter what the legal limit is because legal limits apply to the front 2 windows and the windshield. I did 15% up front 'cause I wanted to match as close as possible without having to re-tint the rear windows. A lot of people prefer to stay within legal parameters which is 35% for most states. A lot of people like them really dark and don't care about the law... it's all personal preference.

I live in St.Catharines, and asked a cop friend(Hes like lieutenant or whatever..hes high up) and I said "I have a truck, whats the legal tint limit?" He said: Anything in the BACK can be as BLACK as it can be. Here, look at my car *looks* My back windows are extra heavy dark limo tint. My front are tinted at..whatever the limit is. Basically, heres what you can do..hold your licsense plate up on the inside, sit in the drivers seat car next to you, if you can read it, its legal. We need to make out who you are, thats it. The back we could careless about, the front we care about"

Now, he didn't give me a precentage..but he gave me his word and good test to do. Most tint places around me have samples up, so..bring your license plate in and test it!

18% is factory, 20% matches beautifully. I do all my own tinting, have for years, I don't recommend it as it is very hard to get right, but if you trust yourself, you can pick up pre-cut tint for $25 for the fronts.

Default Re: OEM Window tint

hey guys just wondering if I get my windows tinted over the oem tint(which is 30%) to 20% would that mean that it would be extremely darker then if I just tinted 20% over untited OEM glass or would it be the same?
