    I already tried searching the forum but have failed, I will be getting tints done in the next week or two; I would get them done now but I want to see what the tints look like on the black tacos and not 100% sure what percent I want to go with, I was thinking limo... suggestions and pictures would be great!

    That's pushing it a little don't you think? For one that's far from being legal and you'll probably get cited for it. Secondly, you wouldn't be able to see some obstacles and potentially a pedestrian in dark clothing when driving at night. I strongly recommend against it.

    That's not a good justification. You can't be driving around town with a bunch of lights blinding the rest of the traffic. Use your common sense a little bit;) There are enough incompetent/crazy drivers out there, you don't need to be added to "careless" ones.

    hay man i have a sheet of 5% and 20% on front and rear doors and on the back glass. a strip of 5% on the top windsheild and 35% from the strip down. the reason i went so dark is becouse even on a sunny day you still cant see in. as for the windsheild lookin out you cant even tell its on there. even in the dark and raining.
