    Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I finished "murdering" out my V yesterday so today was time for a wash and some new pictures. I also de-badged it. I got tired of snagging my microfiber towels on them. Thinking of tinting next but want to make sure I pass state inspection.

    I'm no photographer, but here are a few shots.

    Looks great but you should definitely tint the windows and black out the fog light bezels.

    Seen this car on two forums today, yea tinting the windows with the car being black is the ticket.

    It's on 4 actually Carl

    I want to have the windows tinted and the window trim wrapped with vinyl. The Plastidip works well but I'm not 100% happy with the window trim. I'm just worried about passing inspection with the tint. No one can seem to tell me how much is legal in PA. Even my brother who is a cop said the officer needs to see in from 3' away. That leaves a lot of room for interpretation. I guess I'll speak with the guys at my inspection station.

    No one can tell you the law because you can read the PA law several ways, it's different at night vs. day time, if you wear glasses i.e. eye problem you can get a cert in PA (each car) to have aftermarket tint, see your doctor Many inspection places are fine with aftermarket tint, just check with them first so there is no question

    Re: Murdered 2011 Sedan FInished

    I want my car blacked out! problem is, its silver. should I just have the whole car dipped in a vat of black paint and be done with it? lol seriously, i've been toying with the idea of a wrap but then I have to deal with all the chrome either being plasti dipped or trim taped. From a painters perspective, will it just be easier to take it apart and paint everything black?

    Efin sweet or bad ass? I can't decide.

    I would defiantly do the fog light bezels.

    When you get the 30% tint, have them do the front and rear emblems with light tint also.

    If after your inspection and you tint, then get written up for them (fix it ticket), you can just go to a lighter tint on the front windows.

    I cant think of anything else exterior wise. Maybe adding bat wings :-)
