window tint?

I'm planning on getting a tint for the windows in autozone. Did anyone here did it him/herself? is that hard to do? How dark do you guys think a tint should be, and what color would be good with a silver celica?

I had a perfessional do mine, but I have 30% on the front and 20% on the back. Its supposed to be metallic, but it really isnt its more of a grey/silver..looks good and matches the car perfectly in person.

read this topic for a better understanding

also please don't buy tint from autozone or pepboys ... it's low quality tint that will whind up turning purple and start to bubble in a year. You need to use a high quality metallized film for a long-lasting tint. This type of tint will hold it's color, not bubble and reflect more UV rays.

These types of tint come with a limited lifetime warrenty against fading, cracking, and bubbling. Use a professional, you'll be happier with your tint job. thumbsup

20% is the best. Apply the tint is easy. but you have to cut them nice though

Like what I say apply the tint is easy. I did my integra w/o any bubble but to cut it nice around the windows is a bit hard. yeah, the tint is cheap, I got mine for $20.
