Bad decisions make great stories.

Accutint is the only one I can think of. But they look like they might be pricey.

Why the hell do you want to get your windows tinted here? There's no damn sun.

Best thing to do is just call every place and see how much it is, and look up reviews online. Just got my front two done in Silverdale for 48 bucks.

I just got mine done last week and could not be happier. Found this place near me (Eastside) and had a ton of good reviews. Called for app't and went in - good clean and professional install. I have an access cab so only the two front windows needed to be done. A friend of mine (2011 Tacoma Sport) will get his done his next days off. (No pics that are presentable of the tint yet).

Thanks! I'll look into this. BTW, what brand of tint and how dark did you go with your tint? Lots of discussion about going between 15% and 20%, although I believe WA state law is 24%-35% depending on brand of tint and vehicle...

He was very helpful - the law in the State of Washington is 35% but to match the front to back (to look "even") it took a 20% - but he warned me this was illegal. I chose to go for the 20% - yes, for looks - and it turned out great. So - the choice would be legal and look just a little lighter or go "criminal" and have a better look, IMHO.
