Had the windows retinted - LIMO baby!!

My tint was peeling off in one spot on my drivers side front window. I took it back to the tint shop and they warrantied the tint for me (4 years later). I had 20% (medium) on the front two windows and 20% over the top of the factory tinted glass on the rear two doors and back slider. I loved how dark the back doors were. So when I took it in to get the drivers window redone, I ended up going to 5% (limo) on the front two doors and a 5% eyebrow across the top of the front windshield. Looks much better!!!

Re: Had the windows retinted - LIMO baby!!

When I bought my truck, the front windows were tinted dark. Could not deal with it. Had to remove it from the front windows.

Re: Had the windows retinted - LIMO baby!!

i love dark windows. i have limo over the factory on the rear and 15% on the front with a 5% brow thats 10'' down. I want to go darker but its hard enough to get an inspection sticker as it is.
