I say make it all match... I have 15% so that's my vote... plenty of privacy IMO

Just dropped it off, I'm worried!
They want 140 for the tint, and 20 to strip the old tint off. Its a good price, and I've heard they do awesome work, some of my friends have had their windows done there.

And they use llumar brand tint

I got it back!

Its not QUITE as dark as I was hoping for... I guess I will see what it looks like in the dark. Besides, once I get my headache rack on, it might look alot better since that will cut down on almost all the light that comes in the rear window

I like it.

And I am jealous of the headache rack, only because I want on. Not like that, though.

Looks good! We can legally go 20% on the front 2 and I think as dark as we want on the rears here in texas.

I have 5% on the back 3 windows and it SUCKS backing up at night. In town its sucks but its not that bad but, I live in the country so when im not in town I cant see jack. I added reverse lights and now I can kinda sorta see a little bit.

Yep that was sort of my concern.. For example, on the weekends when we go fishing, unless we do it the night before, I usually hook the boat up at like 4am. It would be impossible to do that.

I live in the country too. I did notice it being a little harder to see, but soo far I like it. I want to add reverse lights too, but I want to make it a clean, almost.. hidden, install.
