tint questions

Ok, so in my stupid state, the limit for tints is 35% and the cops here are bastards so they stop you for the tints. First, does anyone have pics of their car with 35%s?
Other question, how are the kits they sell on ebay or what would you guys/girls do for tints or what have you done?

My 'Balt, Camryn, is my baby. She's a black '09 LT 2.2L with the performance appearance package. I believe that if you take care of your car your car will take care of you.
Currently: Predator Pedals, GM logos gone, blacked out bowties, green interior neons, green LEDGlow, 2x 12" Kicker L7's subwoofer, kicker speakers, Pioneer avic f700bt, Konig Unkown's (17's), Tints

theres are the laws in my state, as found online:
Connecticut Tint Law Enacted: 1994
HOW DARK CAN WINDOW TINT BE IN CONNECTICUT?

Darkness of tint is measured by Visible Light Transmission percentage (VLT%). In Connecticut, this percentage refers to percentage of visible light allowed in through the combination of film and the window.
Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed along the top of the windshield above the manufacturer's AS-1 line.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 35% of light in.
Back Side Windows Must allow more than 35% of light in.
Rear Window Any darkness can be used.

haven't yet. I'm waiting til im down in vancouver cause it costs about double here. I'm thinking I'm gonna go 20 in the back and 50 in the front just so its a bit darker but cops shouldn't care. if you go 35 all the way around you'll probably be pretty happy with it. thats what was on my civic

I like my tint a lot.

Get a custom shop to do it IMO that way its legit.

I too live in a state where fronts can only be 75% (don't bother), but anything you want on back windows. I had a shop do the back 3 windows @ 20%. It cost $100 with lifetime warranty. Worth every penny not to have to mess with it and have it look good.
