legal tint

hey guys im looking to get tint on my 02 v6 mustang. i live in Louisiana, so does anyone know what the legal tint would be here? i wanna do the sides, rear, and strip on top of the winshield. does anyone have pics of their stang with legal tint? or is everyone just doing the 5% and 10%? also, my car is silver. it has 18*9 saleen replicas, gt side scoops and a hood scoop. im gonna add a chin spoiler, grille delete, and that black vinyl decal to go on the hood in front of the scoop. how would all of this look? and are there any other small things that you guys think i should do to make my car look nicer from the outside?

Re: legal tint

50% front, 30% rear quarters, and 20% rear window....

50% front is a waste of time and money...I had it on my 2000 GT as it was tinted here in LA and they would only do legal limits. It only looks tinted at night, any light and you can see straight through both front windows.

Re: legal tint

50% is ridiculous. It's 32% here and even that sucks. I had 20% of my last V6 and it was about right.

Re: legal tint

LA 40% 25% 12% AS1 NET is not totally accurate, but it is a good starting point. The shop I went to would only go to the limits, which were 50, 30, 20....

Re: legal tint

FWIW when the state trooper read my side glass, it only showed 15% and i had 5% on the glass, if you ever get checked, open the door, it reads lower than if the door is closed.i had 5% all around with a 8" strip and 50% on the windshield, he never noticed the front glass or expired inspection sticker

when he said "your window is 15%, limit is 45%" i was like "hell yeah!!!" $450 in tickets for the tint and 80 in a 55

btw: local guys, i have a good friend that will go as dark as you want..if needed.

Re: legal tint

PA was 70 or something ridiculous. i had 35 and 25 - only 1 ticket and it was from a state trooper who was giving me a speeding ticket within 6 years.

im near dc now and just got a new car - i havent looked into getting tint for it yet, but if i did, i would get illegal/dark tint. it seems that everyone and their mother has tinted out windows here.
