Tinted Finally!

Today I finally took my truck and got the windows tinted. I've had a gift certificate since Christmas, but just haven't done it. I also polished my wheels a couple days ago and painted the drums and hubs black.

Only did 20% because it was gonna cost an extra $50 for anything else.

Haven't cleaned the tires yet but at least the rims aren't pitted anymore.

Tint looks good! They were going to charge you extra for darker? Never heard that one before and I've had oodles tinted before. Anyway, it looks much better. Congrats!

Never heard of that either. Tint is usually the same price for 20% or 5%. I know there is a price difference in the quality of tints (the cheap crap always turns purple over time). Well even for 20% it looks better over nothing. A good modification to every vehicle IMO.

Thanks everyone. I think it helps complete the look. The only things left I want to do to the truck are line-x bedliner, tan leather seats, and a new headliner.

Just Blue Magic Polish with a Harbor Freight polishing wheel on my cordless drill. This stuff is the best.
