Question Window Tint

Anyone know of any good places to get Window Tint done?
I want to get 35% all around. (The MA Legal Limit)

There's a guy named Ernie who's shop is in West Bridgewater and he does fantastic work. I forget the name of his shop, but he is at the same place as Bill's tire barn, so you could probably call them and ask them for his number.

He is on Rt 106 in West Bridgewater about 2 minutes off of Rt 24

I just moved to MA and I had my car approved with 20% tint at the inspection station last week.

Oh well, guess I've got one more year till it gets removed.

Yeah, I'm sure it looks great but don't be surprised if you get pulled over for it, I was pulled over twice for tint in my last car and it was the legal percentage- at the very least it gives them a reason.

LOL I drove my car to a dealer last night, just to check out other deals, and when I came in he said "You sure that tint on your car is legal??!" I laughed.

When I had my daily driver '01 Monte Carlo SS, I had like 20% on the back window, 20% on the little windows behind the doors and the doors' windows where just at "passing" level. If the inspection people can't check the window with the densitometer, then you're good to go.
The dude that does my tint is AWESOME!! (I know, I know. EVERYONE says that about the people they use but, this guy does the MA State Police cars and their personal vehicles.) SO, that's saying something.
GOOD LUCK!!

Colonial Auto Glass in Auburn has a Independent guy come in every Thursday as long as he had appointments. I have a 2006 Monte Carlo SS that he did about 3 yrs ago, great job no mess to clean up and it still looks great.

New York legal Window Tint.

Does anyone know what the legal % of window tint is in NY..........?

Has anyone done the tint themself if so, any tips ?
The rear window has very little room to work.
Thanks for any input.

OK this is NY tint law......ALL Side windows need to let in MORE than 70% of light................So, with the factory tint which is App. 80+% You could only put on a VERY VERY LIGHT tint.......... NOT WORTH IT !!!
I was going to use a 50% tint (which is LIGHT) That would be WAY DARKER than what is legal in NY.
REAR WINDOW has no restrictions.........
So, with my black interior It doesn't look to bad.....and thats the way it will stay.

Tint Master on Rt 5 in East Windsor, Ct. I got 35% (I believe it was 35) he said it is illegal but I don't care. Just roll the windows down when you get stopped. As long as you aren't doing anything wrong they are not going to bother you.

They have less then 35 as well and do a great job. I will see if the wife can post pictures tomorrow.

Anybody have problems with tinting the back window due to the cyclops light back there? Did they have to take apart your car to get the tint applied correctly?

Your lucky! They messed up my car and didn't take responsibility.
TintKing is a shady business IMO. Not even a work order or any paperwork.
Shady business.
