I had a car that got broke into, they busted out the rear passenger window. I had 5%. I took it back to my buddy who worked at a car place and would do cars on the side. He was out of 5%, so he did 2 layers of 20% and it matched the 5% perferctly from the outside.

What was really cool, is you could see out of that window, better than the others.

I just called the shop here in town the other day to see what it would cost for my front door windows, and they said 75 bucks, but the person that does the tint is on vacation, so if I bring it in next week, they will give me 10% off.

The said 20% was about what the factory back was, so I'm going with 20% for the doors.

My girlfriend had 5% on her 07 Mustang, and got 2 tickets, but never had to remove the tint.

I had my front windows tinted and just asked the guy to match the rear sides and rear. He did a perfect match and quality was the best I've seen on a tint with no bubbles.

I'm in Ottawa and had them done by Capital Window tinting 613-286-6615

I waited while he did them and it was under an hour start to finish.

I got mine done about month and a half ago, tinted my front 2 windows to match the back factory tint. The guy said its all up to the cops if they want to be a dick here in ontario. but I got what looks to be factory tint all around. So I will just tell the cops "it came that way"

Reading this post it appears Ford factory is 18%, is that the rating on the door glass or the rear and super cab privacy glass? The Ohio law says the front side glass must allow more than 50% of the light in.

If the front side glass is 18% from the factory then could I add 20% film to the front side glass and still be legal, does that make sense?

Thanks
