Window Tint, Exhaust, Wax and Help?

Got a 20% done on the front two windows and a dumped Flowmaster 40 Seris exhaust
Spent awhile washing and got a full coat of wax on it, looks much different dirty than clean!

and awhile ago i clipped my gate backing out...any one know how much a shop will want to re-paint this?? Im getting a bed liner friday and considering just getting the bumper done. Ive only seen this on FX4Wannabe's truck and while it looks good on his, i think the DWB helps him pull it off easier? Suggestions?

Looks good. Do you have a shot from the side straight through both front windows?
The shop here uses 20%, and I've always used 13% on mine. I want to get my F150 tinted so I'm curious how that 20% shows through. Looks lighter than I was hoping for...

I think the bedlinder on your bumper would look fine, just make sure you do front and back.... and ask them to install those little corner poles for you so you know where the edge of your truck is...

yours probably just popped right out or they got jacked. they're sometimes cheap and sometimes expensive. they just snap into the wheel. i think you might be able to run mustang caps too.

How much did the 20% tint run you if u don't mind me asking?

Get some Westley's for the lettering on your tires it will help bring the letters back to white

The tint looks awesome to man.

Yes i do, its way beyond the legal limit here but lighter than this is no good

Only 50 bucks (the back came stock 18%) so i only needed to get the front two done...they are close to the same tint hard to tell the differance.
I have some tire stuff, just didnt use it this time cause the drive way was so muddy!
