    I'm re -tinting my truck this week because the installer did a horrible job. He used solar guard hp supreme on the front with 16% and it looks more like a charcoal green instead of a black film. Anyways, anyone used 3m color guard or have 3m color guard on there trucks? Im considering 3m because of the black film to match the rear. Please help me out and post pics and include what percent you have on. Thank you for your help.

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    I had 20 % put on and it seemed to match the rear windows from the outside but was darker from the inside. So I had them take it off and use 35% and I like it much more. 3m is a dark gray/black but the privacy glass actually has a brownish hue to it. At least mine does.
