I'll have to keep checking in with you guys to see what you have going on in NE. I am in Lincoln and Omaha quite a bit for work and my Camaro will be my daily driver. I should get it back from LPE next week. I wouldn't mind hitting some get togethers.

Grand Island Cruise night

If anyone is looking for a place to bring your new rides, GI is having a cruise night with a car show & shine at the South Locust Sonic and surrounding area from 5-8 and the cruise after that. Not as big as Kearney but seems to be gaining steam each year. Starts tomorrow night Friday 7/24.

I'm not 100% positive on the inspection part of it but i dont think nebraska is to hard to please you should be okay..

And for the front plate, i dont plan on putting one on myself probably just stick it in the trunk and if i get pulled over the worst you'll get is a fix-it ticket

I run an Y pipe without cats, so i doubt you'd have a problem.

The worst you can get is a ticket, if the cop is nice you get a fix it ticket. The ticket is about 100 bucks with court fees, I asked the state trooper that pulled me over for it.

It just depends where you live, if you live in Omaha, a cop is hardly ever gonna get the chance to turn around and grab you. But if you live in Norfolk, Fremont, Columbus or anywhere smaller, they will have no problem taking time out of their day to pull you over...ask me how i know.

I never have been stopped in Omaha for anything, EVER. Every time i go to a smaller town, I get harassed, it's ridiculous.

Shouldn't be a problem with the straight pipes, (loud mouth, muffler delete) under normal driving conditions. They do require an inspection if you buy and title a car from out of state, but just moving here I don't think they do anything special.
I'm running rear plate only, so far no issues in town. But what I've been told it's the State Patrol that will bust you for it. That's who ticketed my Kid for his :(
I'll eventually get a retractable bracket, but for now I'll wait till I get a fix-it ticket.

NE Tint Laws

$300 does sound high though.

I paid just under $200 for 35% on the doors, and 20% on the rear three windows, the legal limit. My cousin, with OPD, loves pulling people over for illegal tint.

When I brought my 280Z from CA (15+ years ago) all they really did was check to make sure the numbers matched, and it had working seat blets. Of course it was all stock, (no loud exhaust, etc) so you may want to wait if you are planning major upgrades.

Mike's glass tinting in GI should be below $200 and does a great job. He just finished up my wife's new Impala and did the side windows on my Avalanche. I'm planning on having him do the Maro when it arrives.

There's a place in Lincoln that does it. You can find him as a sponsor on starcityracing.com.

There prices aren't bad. I don't know where you live though.

You can choose which quality of tint you want, better costs more obviously. I was going to get their best tint, which if I remember right has the liftetime warranty, not to fade, tear, etc. I haven't gotten it done yet though, so i can't speak for them personally.



Nothing worse than paying 200 dollars for a tint job, get a 2 year warranty, and fades after 2 years. That happened at that place in Columbus by the old, Wal-mart, Zeibart. Shitty tint.

However, If the guy is good and he does a good job with a lifetime warranty, you get what you pay for. If money isn't an issue, maybe you should just get it done there.

I got mine done in Omaha. Place is called auto glass tint. They've done my cars, my brother's cars, and his fiance's. I got their best tint, ceramic based, lifetime warranty, and legal limit for < $200.

The company that I'm considering right now is Pro-Tint by a guy named tony.. He told me that he's stationed all throughout NE I dont know if anyones heard of him, But he's the one that quoted me 299 Just for the Camaro specifically because of its uniquely smaller shaped windows.. Like i mentioned previously its also going to take him 4 hours to complete..

I'm in North Platte z28 I'd probably be willing to travel to Grand Island at the farthest, I dont wanna spend the same amount in Gas as am getting it tinted just to get it cheaper.

You think it would be cheaper because he is using less tint film. I guess if it's a life-time warranty, it might not be a bad choice, and less gas spent. It's up to you.

Most shops charge by the window, not the size of the window.

I've been quoted 180 before on my camaro, it's 3 windows, it's supposed to be easy.

Thats what my first thought was.. The majority of the cost might be labor time?? His time must be precious.
