    I am trying to decide weather or not to Tint my windows on my 78 Newport. I'm trying to keep it mostly stock yet still want to upgrade a little. My sports car has limo tinted windows but I am not looking to go that dark. Anyone have tint on their car? Just trying to get an idea of what it would look like on my HUGE car.

    Here's what a "68" Imperial looks like tinted. This car came out of Arizona and the tint really saved the interior.

    tint always looks sharp. it just depends on what you can get away with in your state. i was pulled over by the highway patrol once and they scraped the tint right off my windows as he said the car didn't come with tint for that year and was not legal in his state

    Hmmm, I probably would have taken a beating but I'd think that's destruction of property. Might be considered illegal but it's still your proerty..

    I don't think so, they seize drugs, take alcohol and fireworks out of a car If you yell thief I don't think anyone will be listening.

    True Rapid. Yet here in Idaho if it is too dark they give you a fix-it ticket.

    I dont really care for tint on old cars, I dont actually care for dark tint period. 35% is the darkest I like which is the legal limit in CT. Heres a list by state.

    http://www.tintdude.com/laws.html

    Ive learned most police officers dont know the actual laws regarding tint.

    in Ct its 35% on the side windows (SUVs can be darker behind the passengers) 35% to the AS1 line on the windshield and anything goes on the rear window.

    Remember if your trying to keep heat and UV out its not just % that matters, Do your home work on tint brands, some are much better then other but you will pay for it.

    We use Suntek and Hooperoptik and our prices start at $290 a car
