    Hey guys I searched and I just find a lot of random posts about this so I thought I would start a Thread for all SoCal's tint places. Ok so I went to Audio Matrix in Carson, CA to get my speakers installed. They did a fairly good job on that so my friend wanted to get her windows tinted and they did it there so she went. F'N awful... They had bubbles everywhere. So I told them something and they did it 3 times. The 3rd time they cut sooo damn uneven and as I looked closer to it they cut the chrome and weather seal around the window frame of her brand new 2011 Camry. My friend was livid. I took it to Toyota and Audio Matrix paid for all the repairs after arguing that it wasnt their fault!:mad: D!cks!

    So anyway...... Post some names of some places that you have went to that did an awesome job in SoCal with the Name and the Location. Possibly phone numbers and pics of your trucks.

    Jimmy Anz... Really cool guy and does an amazing job. He tints for most of the audio stores around East County and will redo anything that you dont feel is perfect (I've never heard of anyone complaining though). His number is 619 709 4462 tell him Mike with the blue Tacoma sent you. Located at 1120 Greenfield Drive in El Cajon. Call first though because he travels all over. Here's a pic of my tint:

    I have since had him tint all round the back but I dont have pictures yet. A++ work for sure

    In my experience ALL car stereo shops are full of crooks.

    I don't have any places to recommend.

    great work, great customer service. prices are fair, I paid 165 all around, thats with a firefighter discount.

    they do the same work as shops that charge hundreds more. say Collin with the white tacoma told you to check them out.

    Ha I was actually looking at a precut kit on ebay for tacomas cause I want mine darker...I could order two and we could do your windows if you want. I'll do mine first though to test it out. One of my friends said the pre cuts are a perfect fit so we'll see.
