I just did mine:Tex's Ridge said:What is your opinion about tinting glass / windows? Pro/Con?
Tex's Ridge said:Well, I went and done it!! Called Mr Tint up the road from me, asked when he can do me (my RL I mean), he said to come on over right now, will have it done in 30..zoomed right on over..now I have premium 13% for lifetime guarantee at $65! Would be 50 for the 1 year guarantee. He said this was a match for the back windows, so that means the factory's are 13% too! He also said that the tint would meter out to 10!! No where close to legal. Ticket would be 250 per window!! BING!! BARA BOOM!! OUCH!!!!
I believe in CA tinting the front windows is a No-No...any amount of tinting. BUT...this is a big BUT, most have been able to escape tickets with "lighter" tints. I don't think there is an absolute percentage that is okay...you risk getting a ticket in CA if you have your front windows tinted.DWdrums said:In CA I believe the law is 18% on the sides. Lemmie look real quick....
Darn, can't find it right.
methodtim said:Welcome aboard! Enjoy your time here at the ROC. Um, sorry, can't answer your tinting questions since I don't plan on getting my RL tinted any time soon. I had my Accord windows (front and rear) tinted to an insanely illegal degree and I don't want to suffer the karmic whiplash by doing the same to my RL (well, not yet anyways ).
This is good to know! I would go darker on my front driver and passenger windows if I could but even with the company I work for, CHP would take great pleasure in screwing me over!dsowell said:Our local Pro-Tint store has 2 tints that are legal. One is clear Ultraviolet filtering only. The other is a very light tint which I will probably do on my side front door windows. They give you the documentation showing it is legal so you can show the police if they pull you over.

Thanks for the info Baja!! I have always hated it when they pull the door panels off. I always feel they are going to screw something up that they can't fix which would really piss me off.Baja said:I had all windows including the back done, no removal neccessary.
Moon Shadow here in big D did it and it comes with a life time warranty.
By the time they did mine they had allready done 60 Ridgelines for various dealers in the area and they never remove any panels.
