    I can't believe I waited 3 years to get my windows tinted! I guess it took me that long to save up for it [​IMG] Chickens bring home their food and not my car mods. [​IMG]

    after, I know, I clipped the front end. Ironically its been rainy as crazy over the past few days.... and through the foreseable future too...

    I don't see how anyone can ride around in a car without window tint. I was in my sisters car the other day I about died. But then again I live in the sunshine state! The heat was terrible and the sun was so bright and I don't wear sunglasses. We just tinted the front windows of our house and we used the 70% heat reflective tint boy did it make a difference in the living room. It must have lowered the temp. by 20% even the a/c is running better.

    Yeah, I hear that tinting windows to houses is very efficient in sunny places... Our ac is set for 75 but it only turns its self on for maybe 30-50 days a year... I got the tint for the car for the two months of sun! Just gotta get some of it to test it out to see what difference it will make. It's summer so I'll probably only have to wait for a week or so for a good sun clearing. I think I would die if I had to live in a sunny state! I hear FL is hot and humid!

    Nice tint [​IMG] May I see a driver license, registration, and proof of insurance [​IMG]

    Yea, it should be much cooler in your car during those 10 days that it is hot in western WA. But more so, people won't be able to scope out your car so well when they are prowling vehicles.

    Nice tint! I had mine done a few years ago - a friend of my hubby did it for us - should have done WAY before that!

    Nice job... I think the hardest part is don't roll down the windows for a few days...
    I used to have all my windows tinted on my truck.It made a big difference, mine had the dark limo tint, while I was working as a P.I. Since I got out of that I had to by law remove the tint off of the windshield & doors. [​IMG] oh well it was good while it lasted.
    Love those chickens in the pic too.
