MW Tinting

So I got my windows tinted today. Sorry for the garage pics, but we had rain most of the day. I had the shop use ceramic tint, and I opted for 5% (I know this isn't for everyone):

Thanks. You know I've had 5-10% on my last 6-7 vehicles, and I just prefer it super dark.

As for the garage, my girl wasn't home with her 128, and I typically keep things tidy haha.

You can do 5% on the front windows in AK? That's legal there?

Looks awesome! I bet you have to roll your Windows down at night to see anything though haha. The place I got mine done at just got a new 2% 'super-limo' tint...I can't imagine what that's like!

Yep.

As for night driving, I've had 5-10% on several vehicles now, and I don't have many problems at night. Occasionally I'll roll down a window if I'm going to be parallel parking near a curb, but that is about the extent of it. Of course having the backup camera makes reversing easy as well.

The way things work in Arkansas, you must pay cash and you get no receipt on any work that includes tint darker than 30% on the front windows (legal limit). With that being said, the shop will keep a record of your purchase in case you need to have anything redone due to bubbling, cracking, etc.
