private inspection in NJ

Anyone recommend a private inspection shop that would not look at my tinted (very light 50%) roll down windows and pass me with a new 2 year sticker? PM me. Thanks.

All I can suggest is to go to the smallest shop that'll do inspections and try them out. Some of them just want the business. Around where I grew up, South Jersey, there were a few you could go in and pay with a $50, and just get the sticker. I don't know about those around me anymore though, or anything around you. Good Luck.

Try going in on a nice day, with your windows down. Pull the fuse, and your in business...

Yeah I was about to say.....If they did try to put the windows up and they didn't work, they'd prolly check and replace the fuse and find it anyway. Then they'd be like "Wtf you trying to pull?!"

Power windows don't have to work in PA, and PA is strict.

"..all factory installed safety equipment must be present and functioning..."

I couldn't find anything about power windows. The only parts I could find about the doors was that they need to be present, have a drivers side rear facing mirror and can be opened from the inside.

Thanks guys, a buddy a work knows somebody he's going to take it in i have no idea where the shop is nor do i really care as long as it has a valid sticker.
And i tried the windows down once on a warm summer day, of course the guy hit the up button and showed me how to exit before the inspection was finished "take care of that and come back" he said.
Never thought of pulling the fuse i would think if they weren't able to see/ inspect the roll dwn glass you may fail

Thats funny stuff I used to have the windows of my s-10 tinted with 35% and never had anything said to me about it. I also went in with all my emergency lights (which where illegal for the amount I had) with no permit and the girl in the inspection lanes played with them and said they where pretty cool.

But now onto making the tint LEGAL. If you have a doctor that will give you a doctors note for a medical condition allowing tinted windows you can have up to 35% all the way around. I have that not all it takes is a form from the state and doctor to sign it.
