    And you totally lost me on that last post But don't mind me.
    the rear defrost does nothing to it. Ive had mine done since I got the car 3years ago. still looks good. You just got to have a someone with the experience to do it. I had my buddy do it and he has been doing it for a real long time. He is a mobil tinter and has done plenty of f-bodies in DFW.

    Yeah the cops are dicks about it here too. I've been pulled over three times and fined twice for mine, and its only 35%. The passenger window got messed up a little, so that would have been a good reason to remove it I guess. So instead I made an appointment today to retint both sides... Darker! I guess we'll see how they like it now!!! When I was at the tinting shop, the guy showed me a Trailblazer they did yesterday at 5%. He said "that's a little dark, but this guy will probably get away with it, cuz he's a cop." Ain't that a bunch of shit?

    ya well no one complains when the guy working at jack in the box gets free french fries. so why is this any different. Tinted windows do pose a threat to police officers. how would you feel if you walked up to a window you couldnt see into and then BANG, you got shot. never saw it coming. There is a reason there is a law. Now most cops wont give you shit about your tint unless you are being a complete jackass. if you are then you deserve the $10 fix it ticket.

    He said "that's a little dark, but this guy will probably get away with it, cuz he's a cop."

    That is a very true statement....which is why I keep my windows tinted

    "ya well no one complains when the guy working at jack in the box gets free french fries. so why is this any different.

    Badass2000ss is also right....most cops wont give you shit about your tint unless you are an ass!! However, with me, if you are an ass/shithead, then I will give you a moving violation so that you have to show up in court to prove that it has been removed. If a you are iffy, then I will write a violation notice where you could then pay the $25 fine and later choose to keep of remove tint and of you just cool and appear to be just a regular taxpayer with a cool car and tint...then I write a contact card

    I know where you guys are coming from, as far as safety goes. But I live in a town with very few people, where everybody knows everybody. Our local police have nothing better to do. If they see window tint, they pop you. I just think they're going a little overboard on the small things.

    They are just passing time or getting revenue.

    Well I am not a bad ass nor do I cause a lot of trouble but I still deserve what I get, just because I know the law yet I continue to break it with my tent Kind of like speeding. I had been pulled over 3 times yet I don't complain because the cops here could give you a razor and take it off right away. instead all I got was a $68 fine each time I love my tent and spent $200 per window and don't want to remove it I don't have my front done and the tent on the rear (with Defrost) is a legal tent but my sides are double tented it fades from red to black but at single tent it looks pink so I had a silver tent put on behind it

    I finally took my wifes car in last summer to tint the back window as dark as possible to match the sides (this is an old subject it seems)

    They mentioned at the tint shop, that our side windows were too dark (it's been done for years) and asked if I wanted it removed.

    I said nope. Never been pulled over for it and don't care. I don't worry about it. I'd rather pay a fine.
    They showed me the legal tint allowed on the sides,,,and it was rediculous, don't even see how that would keep out the Arizona sun, which for us is the reason for the tint in the first place.

    That looks good bro.

    Would be totally unique if the rear had the fade too.
