first off you can't mount neon lights inside above the window line, as for percentage to still shine through probably 35%

If your talking about the visibility of footwell neons then go with 35% on the front forsure, you can't see my white through the back at 5%

Yeah it all depends upon how the cops are around the area as to which a person lives, I being in Wisconsin, never really had much problems and don't with my tinted windows. But again its all about the area.

Don't go below 35% or you'll get a ticket faster then you can flip your neons on and off. At least thats how it is around here.
