Windows dipped?

Any Canadians or North/South Dakotans (or anyone really) know any good places to get windows dipped? Tint wise... the only way to beat the law, is to have "factory" tinted windows... so if GM doesn't do it (which they won't, and haven't for awhile) i need some place that will dip the windows to tint them!
Any and all help/comments is appreciated!

Normally only the glass makers do that as far as I know.

Is there a total ban where you live or what is the limit?

Limit is factory on the windows directly left and right of the driver (which is the only ones i need dipped). Behind the driver, any level is legal.

Ive never heard of that before. How would that even make it legal? I can just see them towing your car.

The Camaro does have factory tint on all the windows except the windshield. I don't know what the rating is though.

Last time I looked, factory tint was built into the glass when it is made, not just dipped and covered on the outside of the glass??

Yea I know about that site and local laws. I am allergic to getting pulled over so would not have illegal tint myself. Also there is the factor of your own view...

dipped is just that, they remove the glass and dip it into a tinting liquid that covers the window. or they can spray the tint on as well. like the tinting at the top of the windshield on nearly every car out there.

regular tinting is a plastic film that is glued to the window.

Dipped? Still doesn't sound like that would all of a sudden make it legal since it is still not "factory" tint...

well, some vehicles come factory with side window tinting. I dont know of many off the top of my head. but the fact that its dipped in a factory style application (and if the cop doesnt know any better), you can claim it as "factory tinting" unless its like 5% or something.

I think you're still taking a risk of getting tickets with the dipping. Especially when more Camaros come out. They'll see that's it's not something from the factory.
You could get out of it if you had a medical reason for needing tinted windows: http://public.findlaw.com/traffic-ti...ws-basics.html

I just have one question for you...Are you seriously going to dismantle the interior and doors to take all 4 side windows and the rear window out of a brand new car, get them dipped, and then put it all back together well enough that none of the seals leak?

Best of luck to you!
