i think you should leave the fender flares the color they are and it would be perfect. or spray them with with a clear coat. imo i dont like the flat black. and did you photoshop this yourself?

Oh, didn't know that. There's people around here running with their full windshield tinted at 25% (Not legal, but Florida is lax on a lot of "modifications" done to cars).

EDIT: took the visor off ^^^

Photoshop is a great program, Oh5Edge is really good with it. You should tint the front windows the same as the back, you'd have to find a way around inspections though.

Yeah, it's a good way to kill time. I'm photoshopping while I'm taking a driving class online for my ticket I just got in my "speed racer" of a monster-mini truck. Man I hate how these things are timed (I KNOW MY LAWS!!! ha ha). Here's with no steps.

Passing inspection is easy roll the driver and passenger side window down.

I did that and they never said a thing

Keith. Think you better check. A 4" strip at the top of the windshield is OK I think. But I'm sure you ARE NOT allowed to tint the front door windows of any vehicle in Calif. I know lots of guys do it. But I'm sure it's against the law and if you get cited for it the judge can order you to take it off.

California Tint Law Enacted: 1999
HOW DARK CAN WINDOW TINT BE IN CALIFORNIA?

Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In California, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.
Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 70% of light in.
Back Side Windows Any darkness can be used.
Rear Window Any darkness can be used.

HOW REFLECTIVE CAN THE TINT BE IN CALIFORNIA?

Similar to sunglass lenses, some tinting film contain metallic elements that help in reflecting incoming light and reducing the glare and heat generated by visible light.
Front Side Windows Must not be more reflective than a standard window.
Back Side Windows Must not be more reflective than a standard window.

OTHER CALIFORNIA RULES AND REGULATIONS
Restricted Colors The tint color(s) of RED AMBER BLUE are not legal by state law.
Side Mirrors Dual side mirrors are required if back window is tinted.
Certificate Requirements Manufacturers of film do NOT need to certify the film they sell in the state.
Sticker Requirements No sticker to identify legal tinting is required.
Medical Exemption State law does NOT allow medical exemptions that would allow you use special tint.
