    How dark is your gangster tint?

    Mine i guess is pretty dark. Its lighter in the 2 front doors, the back doors and rear window are way darker. Dont have any numbers, this is the best current pic i have. My guess is it looks even darker because the car is white (pearl).

    14 stops: 0 tickets.

    Re: How dark is your gangster tint?

    My winshield is Limo and the rest of my windows are double Limo. Its pretty dark but it does help with the heat on my leather seats.

    EDIT: Never been stopped on my tint and also never had anything said to me when I've been stopped for other infractions.

    wow, double limo sounds nice!

    I didn't know you were allowed to tint windshields. I would be stopped in an instant...

    I think mine only has the factory tints, if it came with factory tints, not sure. I want to go to 5% for all the rears and maybe 20% for the fronts

    Re: How dark is your gangster tint?

    My black 92 Fleetwood (sold) had 5% black all-around including the windshield.

    My white 90 DeVille (sold) had 5% chrome with 5% black behind it and the windshield was 50% chrome. You couldn't see through that from outside in the dead of night with all the interior lights on. It was fine for driving, but backing into parking spaces was a little tricky with the windows up.

    My green 95 DeVille Concours (sold) had 20% bronze all-around and 50% bronze on the windshield.

    My silver sand 02 Escalade has 50% black on the windshield, 20% black on front windows and the rest is factory tinted glass.

    My pearl 95 Eldorado ETC will be getting 20% black all-around in a couple weeks once the new engine is in.




    Edit:
    P.S. jcresciSTS, If you tint the entire windshield it is harder to tell than if you do a dark strip, also very difficult for police to prove as long as it is 20% or higher.

    I wish I could do that to my STS but here in Minneapolis it’s a guaranteed ticket.

    I dig it, and whenever I see a cop I just roll my windows down, it lets the light shine through my winsheild from the inside which makes it look ALOT lighter.
