    So i want to tint all of my windows, the thing is that the backs already have a light factory tint. So do i remove that start fresh or no? Oh yea i was thinking 20 in the back and 40 up front. I had 5 all the way around on my charger but i got really paranoid at night. Anyways any and all comments welcome.

    Be careful drivin down State St with those windows! i got popped there once. fortunately it was before i started hittin the bars :D

    Back to your post, i dont think the rear is actually "tinted" with film.. i think the glass is colored or something

    Like the last guy said, go to a tint shop and have them match the front. thats what i did it looks good. I know a good shop in thousand oaks if you dont know where to go.

    Oh, well the guys there are pretty chill and definitely know what they're doing. Newbury is huge i wouldn't doubt there are some crazy spots to mob it. Im in Westlake village so you really have to know where to look if you wanna off road :rolleyes:

    I went there for a quote a while back and they weren't too friendly at the time maybe it was just a bad day. they were also more expensive than solar tint

    Well im sure your truck will be fine, just dont do anything out there you are unsure of. If you want you could always ride down with me instead of driving.
