Finally Got Tint

It took 6 years, and 130,xxx miles since my wife bought her cobalt but we finally got tint.

I have no idea why we waited so long, I've always tinted my cars. Better late
than never.

Car's dirty....

18% Suntek Carbon all the way around with a 5% Suntek Carbon strip on the front. This is my 4th vehicle with this exact tint, all 18% and all suntek carbon. I've always loved it aside from wishing I went 15%, Next time maybe.







Some before/after. The sun was out before but not after, so the afters look a little dull...

$220 cash since it's not legal.... But the price varies GREATLY so you can't take that
and compare it really... Plus this guy was the best in my mid state area and this is the 4th car Ive had him do. I was willing to pay extra for him to do it over some other shop for half that....

I couldn't talk her into aftermarket wheels much less coilovers.... lol
I did the bixenon retrofit and now tint, I might be able to talk her into wheels and lowering springs over time... she refuses even an 8" sub install. It's her car, I don't care.

Well after just one day she says she wishes we went darker to 15%. Lol

Maybe now I can start working in wheels and a drop.

so whats the easiest tint to get away with in ny lol?
the law in ny is 70% transparency but looking at that tint it seems pointless... would i be able to get away with less?

Looks very nice but...really sticks out on the black car (i.e. LEO tint magnet). Hope your wife can "work" her way out of ticket...=;^)

Great job tho...I'm waiting to replace my daughter's windshield and then we'll tint to NE law. She'd freak if a cop even gets behind her for no reason.
