Getting Windows done

I'm getting them tinted (finally) on Thursday.......anything I should be wary of? I did verify that the guy warrants his work (I assume at least as long as he's in business). Suggestions please gentlemen

Aslong as he puts a warranty on his work, you wont have much to worry about.. Make sure you post pics when the tinting is done!!

important stuff, make sure you DO NOT roll down the windows for at least a few days, but if he's slightly competent, he will tell you that. I did mine right before I went out of town so I didn't have to deal with it.

Another, what % are you getting? Most places do warranty their work, but only on legal percentages. Make sure that the % you get will have a warranty on it.

CRAP... that means I have to use my air conditioner. I usually just drive with the windows down. Luckily I'm leaving Friday in the "other" car for the weekend so I won't accidentally role them down... I'm getting them tinted as dark as legally possible. Thanks

Yeeeeouch!

Wearing shorts in my car is a VERY PAINFULL experience. I didn't really want the leather seats... just the V8 Manual.

There is a 6" or so strip across the top. Blocks the sun well where the visors don't but appearance wise I'm not sure about it.
