Exclamation Picture of Red camaro with 35% tint PLEASE!!

Getting tint done in a few hours! Can't decide on 35% or 50%.

50% is legal here but if 35% doesn't look to dark im going with that. So please! If you have a red camaro with 35% tint post pictures!

And make sure it's a side view

I don't have any pics but I hope this helps:

If you're worried about the 35% tint not being dark enough and if the 50% is legal, why not just get the 50%? Also, pics may be a little deceiving depending on the intensity and angle of sunlight on the car. If sunlight is coming directly through the windshield then the tint may appear lighter/more translucent in a photo. If dark is your goal, go for the darkest legal.

I just don't want to spend my cash and then not like the way it turns out :/ any idea of that percentage the tint would be if I put 50% on since the factory tint is already 70%?

So it would be 50% tint over 70%...what would that equal?

I had a Subaru SVX with the darker tint. Was great during the day, but at night, I couldn't see anything when backing up. I almost hit about a million things trying to back up at night. Actually hit 1 pole, but many close calls.

Well, my Camaro is currently at the shop and I went with 50% :/ after talking with the Tint guys about what you can get away with and the fact that I already had 70% tint stock they said my odds of being pulled over where I live is very high especially when your driving a red Camaro. Oh well. I hope it turns out good.

So to recap. I'm getting 50% on the sides and 5% on the 1/4 window and the rear window. I will get my windshield tinted later.

Thanks for all the pictures. You guys have some REALLY nice Camaros.

I had the person tinting mine show me the difference between the two. 50% wasn't really dark at all for me. I went 35% all around except the windshield.
