Sweet, Tim!! I was going to try to get an SC this Summer, but my plans got put on the backburner until next Summer 2014. Instead, the family and I will be taking our very First Caribbean Cruise this coming June. I guess it's a good trade-off for now...

Enjoy that beast!!

Yea its going to be dark...ive been boucing back and forth over 5% or 13%, those are the 2 offered. Ive always tinted all my cars 13% and wished it was a bit darker, but the camaro comes with 70% tint so that 13% would be like 8%......so i dont know. I think im just going to do it and go with 5%. During the summer i drive everywhere with the windows down and i rarely drive at night

Ive had 17 cars since ive gotten my license, and about 10 of those ive had the tint appointment made before i even had the car, for some reason i never tinted the camaro over the 2 years ive had it.!!

That is DARK! Is your sunroof done too? Your windshield looks dark, but I am guessing that's because of all the other windows are tinted.

The tint looks AWESOME!!! Wicked jealous of the work you had at JRE, the car is a real beast. Hey, so I won't have any issues if I get that level of tint on my car?
