Laughing One step at a time. Seats and cluster are next, woodgrain will probably be my winter project.

Don't I know it. Thats the next thing I need to save up for. Already plan on 35% on the front windows and 20% the rest of the way around.

Nah, that's too dark. 20% is good. I love it on my cars. And I can still see at night. Smile

I like 35% all around, that way your ok with the tint Nazis for the front two, and it looks even.

Stop being a pansy and weld sheet metal over all the windows. Then put the hearse plates on it and call it the "panel van of death"

Inside it should have shag carpeting on the ceiling and a small bar to serve drinks named after dead people

Only way I'll be able to pull the car thru inspection with 35/20 is I can flash my funeral directors license and they'll let it pass. It may eventually have a stretcher in the back so I wanna make it as dark as I reasonably can.

I like it. On a similar note, if I ever get my "dream" hearse, a '62 S&S Combo car, I want to get a vanity plate that reads "LSTRDE" (Last Ride)

Yeah, 35 isn't nearly dark enough. Looks barely darker than factory tint when all the windows are that way.

Exactly. My buddy just did 35 front/20 rears on his Forester and 20 is just right imo.

I agree. These are all 20/35/50... (rears/rear door/front door)























This one has the light behind the car.


So yeah, I like 20/35 split. I'd go 20 all the way if the state would let me. Smile

My 35% all around does not look bad. It was 3M tint with lifetime warranty.

I can't wait, and with my fancy projector headlamps ill be able to see fine at night with tint on my windshield. What a Face

With my tint now you cant see in it at night but during the day its pointless. I like the tint on my 88 but unfortunately it wont blend in as well on my Caprice. You cannot see in this car day or night and Ive never once been pulled over for it or had it mentioned when I got pulled over for other things.

Already had the conversation with a Statey about the 5%
THEY DONT LIKE IT. $250/window if they write you up.
Coupled with blacked out tails, it screams HAVIN A BAD DAY?...PULL ME OVER
Every time I see one now I drop the windows.
5% coming off due to winter cuz I cant drop the windows then.
PLUS it sucks at night. Tricky when backing up with windows up
Sucz tho cuz it looks really good blacked out

Now that I know the %#'s I need to see it again to decide on what I'm gonna do.

Once you get into it, there's no going back. Shocked
Make sure its your opinion. scratch
Much as I like the clean look the wood has something going for it.
Hope that helps Suspect Razz

I say keep the wood, too. Much cooler to have a cool, fast woody than a plain-sided car. Wink

Right now it boils down to whether I end up using the wagon for work as it looks like I might be. If it stays a cruiser/daily driver, the wood will stay. If it starts going to work, wood will come off. And if I really want it to go back on, there is a company in CA that specializes in wagon woodgrain kits. It'll "only" set me back $600 Rolling Eyes affraid
