Thats what I was trying to say, its starts clear at the bottom and works its way to the top of the cab, usually only the first 2 inches are gradient then the rest to the top of the cab is dark. Thanks for the help in explaining, these meds are killing me

Here something like this, where you dont see the cutoff at the bottom.

I haven't talked with my local tint shop about prices yet (what should an eyebrow run anyhoo?) but I think I have decided that I like and prefer the curved brow over the straight strip. Although both would achieve my ultimate goal, I think the curved would flow better with the rest of the truck. My quote was $90 OTD for my front windows tinted to state law.. how much have the rest of you paid for the brow tint strip so I have an idea of what ballpark to expect?

I had the eyebrow on the wife's van and on my truck and both front windows tinted on my truck for 115 on Friday I think it was 65 for the windows and 25 a piece for the eyebrows. I'll say this both the van and the truck look great with the tint work done.

KA1OTE, sounds like our prices are pretty close down here in Louisiana. I got a couple of quotes from $100-$120 for both front doors and eyebrow. So i would say no more than $30 for an eyebrow.

Ive had my tint strip on the front added and had my two side windows re tinted to 5% all for $175. So the strip probably only cost $35 or so Ive have had my "eyebrow" for a year. No issues or bubbles.

I have two quotes now for..
35% on the front two windows & an eyebrow strip

#1 Up north and about a 2.5 hour drive one way - $95 cash

#2 Local shop - $110.50 (+ $10 if I want 5% for the eyebrow)

Obviously it is worth it to shop local on this one.. thus saving the gas for a 5 hour round trip drive (plus any future trips should I have any problems with bubbles, etc).

Now.. I am thinking 5% for the eyebrow will be too dark. Will 20% be OK? I don't think there is anything between 5 and 20 so those are my darkest of options. Just not sure if the 5% is worth the extra $10..?

I was going to post a pic of mine. But the gallery is not working for me right now. I love the tint strip.
