New to Socal, Need some Recs

Hi all, I moved to Burbank last summer from the east coast and I'm looking to get a couple of things done now that the tax return finally came in. I'd love some recommendations for places to get some of the stuff below done if you guys can recommend me any ideally that are close, do a good job and are reasonably priced. Also if you have ballpark estimates of the cost of some of this below that would be helpful for me too, i have a general idea.

1) Tint windows
2) Tint back lights
3) Detailing - got some swirls and some paint chips amongst other things
4) good shop to eventually replace the front bumper.


Thanks!!

depends on if you mind driving.

Direct Tints
8504 Telegraph Rd
Downey, CA 90240
Phone number (562) 896-3820

This place does good work, they have done all my cars and all the windows on my house, they are also mobile but the price is a bit higher.

I like them because he used quality 3m tint, not cheap crap, and he guaranty's his product and work.

Owners name is Sal.

First Priority Mobile Detail:
Luis 951-454-9248

He is a mobile detailer and has a small body shop.. He's been doing my vehicles for about 10 years, comes to my house twice a month and does all my cars, used to come to my office but I changed jobs and the new job doesn't allow it..

I trust Luis, he pays very close attention to detail, is fairly priced and is a car guy so he knows how to treat your vehicle.

He has done body work and detailing for a couple of my neighbors, they all seem to have been pleased with his work.

he color sanded all the orange peel out of my Camaro as well.

Check local laws. Window tint isn't legal here. Though that doesn't stop people from doing it. I'm not sure if the taillight blackouts are legal.

I only use Extreme tint in Cerritos, a little drive but they do awesome work with great prices. Also a forum sponsor, as for tint you can do that and the detail yourself to save some money

Welcome to the 818 brother...for tints go to Sunshield (should run you about 120 for all windows and they have a lifetime warranty on their work)...for any body/paint work rich and famous auto is definitely up there

for light blackouts hit up sticker city across from sunshield

Taillight blackouts are illegal. Sort of like window tinting, though, it's mostly used by cops as a "reason" to pull you over, and tase you if they are having a bad day.

I understand, I suppose I was wondering what the difference would be between a camaro with Taillight tint and a Mustang that already comes that way.

Yes it is! I left new Jersey at the right time let me tell you haha. They have had the worst winter in a long time over there. Polar vortex, snow storm upon snow storm, not exactly ideal driving weather for a camaro let me tell you.

Darkness lol, I used nite shades to tint mine when I had it. Spray it then wet sand it to get a good gloss out of it. I wouldn't do it again because it wasn't worth all the effort

only difference there is that the Camaro looks better than the mustang..
..just don't over do it.. I have yet to hear about someone getting pulled over for this but it is indeed illegal..
check out this site they have different tint levels and pretty easy to just install yourself..

Oh, yea! I've been seeing that on the news ! It's been bad with snow over there! I Feel bad for ppl with camaros! No need to worry about police when it comes to your tint Especially, on these cars! as far as taillights the police won't know the difference.
