    Good evening guys,

    BLUF: looking for pictures of your tinted charger

    Tomorrow I'm going to get some tinting done, but having a hard time choosing how dark. My old charger had 5% all around and my Jeep Wrangler has 5% on top of the factory tint and 20 on the front. The wife isn't the biggest fan of the 5% due to backing up but we have back up cam now. I think 5% would look good with the yellow on the back and either 15 or 20 on the front.

    tint.jpg Ended up going with 20% in the front two and 5% on the rest. I was going to go with all 5% but on my last charger I had gotten a ticket because he "could not see me." Doesn't look too bad but they didn't put tint all the way up the back glass, stopped at the dots. Which is kinda annoying.

    Your car looks great with the dark windows!!

    I had the same thing done. My tint guy explained that he had to stop at the dots because the tint film wouldn't stick to the dots properly due to the dots being metallic. He stopped at the edge of the dots, but to be honest, you can't tell by looking at my car. I did 20% all the way around and it looks sharp.

    47670B70-B0BB-4990-8649-0941B054266B.jpg I put 20 on the side and rear windows. I've had a few looks from the popo but should be ok as long as I behave!

    Wish I would have came here first. I was scared of police so did 30 in front and 20 in back so it wouldn't be 2 time. Also what percentage would u guys suggest on the taillights. Stripes coming next wednesday.

    Here's my baby after I got her windows tinted. 20% on all four doors and the back window. It's technically less-than-legal, but I can't resist how sharp it looks!!
