hey guys,

just had to replace my windshield which had a 5% strip across the top to match the rest of the truck, thinkin of just doin the whole windshield in 35-40% this time? so my questions. 1-how do yall think thatll look?
and 2.-do you think itll cut down on the sunlight thats let in as much as the 5% did simply because it covers more surface area or not? my eyes are light sensitive ever since lasik and i hate alwasys havin to wear sunglasses lol

thanks

ive always thought about doing 35 or 50 on the whole thing then do a 5% brow so its not obvious to the laws

Definitely illegal but 40% you can't notice to much especially with that strip. Depends how strict your police are though

40% isn't really noticeable. But it does make the rest of your tint darker as less light gets in.
All depends on your local cops.
I have a handful of buddies with this on their vehicles. Some with 40's and others with 50's
But the 5% brow will hide that You have a tinted windshield.

I am not sure about other states, but in florida you can get a "prescription" for window tint on the windshield. People with certain eye issues and people with skin cancer get it. As far as just doing it, I have thought about risking it. But i do easily notice if other cars have the window tint. I say go for it.
Also I do know they make a clear tint that blocks 100% uv rays and you could had the 5% .strip at the top

I have the clear uv protection and inferred film at 80%. It really cuts down on the glare in the day time and at night. The 5% strip up top also helps, here in Texas if you have a prescription from your doctor and take it to the DMV, they will let you have tint on your windshield. If not that's where the clear film comes in, I would check with your doctor to see if you could get a prescription. Google your state on laws for tinting your vehicle!!

Wouldnt that bit a bit of a hassle seeing at night with a tinted windshield? It would be great during the day though. When I had a motorcycle it was great with a tinted faceshield during the day, but sucked balls at night.

my friend has 35% on his wind shield and you can tell its tinted no matter if you have the eyebrow or not if your going face to face with a cop your windshield just looks black and they may mess with you just deoends weather or not the cops in your area care about tint
