All Around Window Tint

I have a 04 OB first thing I did was get the drivers and passengers windows tinted at 50% sides at 5 or 10% and back glass at 20%. Have done all my cars like this or to this degree helps in summertime and people cannot look in and see your stuff. No problems backing up or looking out the back window only problem is when guys in lifted trucks with 1 million candlepower lights gets in your rear view mirror at night but it's well worth it be careful as some install shops will really stick you for the priviledge of tinting your windows but it's nice looking and helpful

1st thing I did when I got my 02 was tint the windows. I hate feeling like a fish bowl and everyone seeing into the car.

Not sure % but I went with what the lady behind the counter called limo tint behind the front doors all the way around. The two front windows are 50% I think.

First thing I did after having the car for 2 weeks was 35% tint on the front windows and 20% on the rest, it feels so much better on those hot sunny days.

I did 5 coats of plasti-dip and three coats of krylon fusion, which is what i used to paint the gold cladding.
