Tinted Windows *pics*

Yay, finally got it done! 15% all the way around, Madico film, lifetime warranty. Going back in 3 weeks to get 'touch ups', ie: press the film down securely after it cures.

After:

that looks GOOD! Did they touch the windshield?

Would a lighter tint be 10%, and would darker be 20%?

thnks.

Thanks man! No they didn't touch the windshield. The % is a measurement of how much light goes through the tint. So, 35% would be lighter, 15% would be darker, 5% would be as dark as a limo.

No, its the other way around. !0% would be darker and 20% would be lighter.

Thanks slawek and blahman, 10% is darker, 20% lighter. That always confused me.

Yup, the lower the %, the less light getting thru! In Ontario, we dont have any % values for legal limits, it's up to the officers discretion. It's not bad during the day, like you can see that there is a person there wearing a seatbelt.. But at night, good luck :P 35% seems to be the standard for "legal" around here.. most places wont do below that on the front windows, but if you tell them you're aware of the risks, they'll do it.

It's a little bit of a learning curve seeing out the back. It's not bad though. I can see myself getting used to it quickly. Right now it's more of a challenge, but really not bad.

I paid $220 CDN, taxes included. There are cheaper places out there, but they dont use Madico film.

i think the % on the tint is what percent of the light from the inside escapes through the outside. like if its 35% than 35% of the visible light can escape through the tinting, if its 5% than 5% of the light can escape and so on...

The snow photograph looks from last winter to me, not yet this year.

Tint looks like a nice way to start
Though as normal, the Ontario front windows law is vague.. some cops might harass you on it. As for getting used to the driving, been through nighttime in the rain yet? Fun times at first
