Lookin to get a tint? what do i look for?
what would i ask for, is there better film? i found a place that would do 35% for 60$ but i think i want to get 20% its like 80$ with a lifetime warrantty. its called lonestar truck accessories. the guy told me theyve done like 100 celicas before, and that have to stores in houston. so im assuming its a good deal. what do you guys think? does ne one know of a good place in houston north west area? (highway 6 and i10)

are you talking about just the tint without installation. Usually it runs about 100 up to 200 hundred. I'd go 15 percent if you want dark but legal. I'm goin 5 percent back and sides with a 5 inch strip in the front

"legal" depends on where you live, check local laws.

Wherever you get it done, make sure they have a lifetime warranty against cracking, peeling, bubbling, etc.
