When I see kids in my neighborhood driving hot rods, modified to the 9's, louder than jet aircraft... I never really worry about mods on my truck like tinted visors below the legal line. For me... it all comes down to this.
I have window tint all around, Magnaflow muffler, tinted visor... if I ever get pulled over for speeding (not likely) ...I'll say Yes Officer!, No Sir Officer, What seems to be the problem Officer...and hope for the best.... Best of luck to you.

I agree with you, I should go back and talk them into it. However, I can see both sides.

On one hand, I know the appearance I want.

On the other hand, I know that no tint can be installed that reaches below the AS-1 line on the windshield.

I want to stay as close to legal as possible, but I also don't think I can stand my brow as it is installed right now. It simply looks terrible!

Do you think I will pass safety inspections and not get harassed by authorities for crossing the AS-1? Is this like tint percentages where you get a leeway?

Now this is what I'm talking about! My eyebrow is fixed and just the way I wanted it to begin with.

The shop manager told me his guys would be at the shop ready for me at 6pm. I get there and the place is locked up, no one around. I call the manager but get voice mail. About 20 minutes later, one of the techs I met last Friday pulls up. He and I chat while we wait for someone to come and let us in.

The tech, Robert, tells me that Michael (the owner/manager) does this to him all the time.. tells Robert to do a job legal, even though Michael knows it is not what the customer requested. So, Robert and I go over my Ram and discuss exactly what I originally told Michael that I wanted. (Why Michael would tell his techs to install the eyebrow legally after they had just installed illegal tint on the front windows is beyond me LOL!) Robert does say it looked odd to him when he was installing it last Friday (where it cut through the logo) but did it that way because he was told to. He said he was glad to see me come in and have it fixed.

Apparently, Robert works at one of the dealerships in town installing tint and does work at this shop on the side. Let me say he is very knowledgeable and got right to it. He spent a little over an hour applying the new eyebrow.. measuring more than most others probably would. The result? Pure awesomeness!

These pics suck as the shop has horrible lighting for taking pictures. I know how much we all like pics though, so I did my best. I snapped the last picture at the gas station.. somewhat better lighting. I'm driving to Cheyenne tomorrow so it may be a day or two before I get better day shots up but these should give an idea of how it looks now.

Looks good, Kai. Glad you got it fixed right and done the way you wanted it.

It didn't really bother me with the first tint (I see how it could bother some people though) but the second tint definitely looks wayy better!!
