Factory window tint

Thinkin bout tinting my windows again and going darker. The guy before me tinted the front two only and didn't do a good job at matching. My question is what are the back windows 20%? And what do I need to tint them to match 5% which is what I plan on tinting the front two



Thanks

Re: Factory window tint

I put 15% on my front to match the factory back. Really close match. Sorry can't help with the rest.

Re: Factory window tint

I did 20% over everything on my old rig. looked good. I think like 18% is a dead match for the rear... not real sure how dark to match 5%. my 20% over the factory was decently close to 5%

Re: Factory window tint

If you're looking to go 5% in the front and want it to match, go 20% over the factory tint. Damn near perfect.

Re: Factory window tint

Very nice! I also did 20% over the factory tint on my topper. Had to make sure that matched too.

Re: Factory window tint

i did 20% over everything the front is lighter but i it makes it WAY easier to see the trailer at night, i used to have 5% on my f150 and had a hard time backing the trailer in at night.yeah the topper is on my list to i was thinking of doing hurricane film on the topper glass. cause of the large glass size and the truck does see some narrow jeep and hunting trail and i keep a bunch of tools and crap in the back and its only a matter of time before i bash a handle or somethin into it.
