Tint

I'm going tomorrow to set up an appointment to get my windows tinted...how should i get them done?
I was thinking fade it...legal on the doors than fade to limo in the back...or should i just get the same percentage all the way around?

Hey Jess,Don't do reflective tint! It looks horrible on Celicas. thumbsdown Faded tint looks weird, but on some cars its alright.

I'd go limo, with 5% in the back and back windows and 30% on the side windows. Just ask for "state legal tinting" so cops can't roll you for driving violations. grin

I'm checking out this mobile tint place called Solarguard tinting. The guy finally gave me a call back today after 3 days. spineyes
BTW, make sure the tinting has a lifetime warrany or you are owned
