    Front windshield tint

    Has anyone tinted their front windshield just the top part? I believe my 2007 Denali,had some kind of factory tint just on the top and went down a few inches. My Escalade,has no tint on top and I was wondering how far to take it down maybe to the AS1 line I think it's called. I don't want it down to where it blocks my view. I have 4% tint all the way around my vehicle so should I do 5% on the front ban or do maybe 20 a little lighter? Any pics also would be great.
    Thanks

    legally, in S.C. you can only go to the AS1 line. that's about where it will start to get in the vision of traffic lights anyways. Having 5% on your vehicle I know your not worried about the legalities though.

    I bought a sun strip from eBay for $10, 5% and it comes about an inch below the as1 line. Helps a greatmdeal! A bit of a cutting to install to go around the mirror and the other black sensor box, and ez pass, but not too bad! I really like it! Will post pics soon!

    I have 60% wincos across my whole windshield. From the inside you won't even know its tinted and barely from the outside but it's heat blocking properties are excellent. I'm a firm believer in wincos tint. Had my front two windows done in 20% and was impressed by it, decided to get the whole car done in 20% over factory and 60 on the windshield. Really wanted 45 or30 for looks but decided it wasn't worth the hassle of getting pulled over more frequently. So far so good. No issues with police, and the car is very cool even on these 90 degree days we've been having in the south.

    ^I would like to fully tint my windshield too... just as the above fella did, but yearly inspection stickers and county sickers would mean yearly tinting. I suppose you could leave a few square inches untinted, but would have to find a COOL shop to inspect as thats a NO NO in Virginia.

    Just not a fan of the banner look.... But I wish I could tint mine darker, but everyone I know that has gone darker than 60 has gotten a ticket or pulled over before. But honestly the wincos is rediculously good at blocking heat. Its not just for looks.

    If you tint 80% it's going to be really hard to tell and you get the benefits of heat rejection and that slight what is different about the truck looks.

    that's wincos 20 all around and wincos 60 on the windshield.

    It's over cast that day, so everything is really lighter in person, and the windshield doesn't even look tinted...

    I see that you are in lousiana as well. I opted not to get a brake tag and risk the fix it ticket.

    What are your plans after the brake tag expires?

    Gritty does it impair your visibility at night at all? Also what did they charge to tint your windshield . Was it hard for them and how long did it take? I like the look
