It was BS man. Im the first person to admit, hey you know what, you caught me, but this guy was the biggest ahole ive ever had to deal with. He literally pulled his gun on me while I was reaching for my registration. Im 28 years old. In a collard shirt and khakis coming from work... Not some young thug. Dude is going the opposite direction, busts an illegal uturn and floors it to probably 130mph to get up on my bumper. Im doing the speed limit, with my seat belt on, all while people are passing me doing 15mph over the limit and he pulls me over for tint. Then i simply ask "sir i believe tint is a secondary offense, are you allowed to pull me over for this?". His response... "son, i have a badge, i can pull you over for whatever the hell i want". Sorry to rant, just extremely pissed off. These bs laws are nothing but revenue generators for the state.

... Anyway like i said. Ill be up by 6am tomorrow for work, so if you need any help, ill have my phone on me bro.

Why not just remove the tint? I'm sure you have nothing to hide.

of course I have nothing to hide... It looks good, and helps keep the car cool in 105 degree weather..
But anyway.... Here is the install guide for the CC plates OP. This will help guide you through removing the front strut assembly as well.
http://www.americanmuscle.com/mm-cas...1-install.html

Here is another great walk through. This will help with removing the front and rear springs.
http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/...g-Installation

Again, im up and already bored at work, so if you need help just lemme know.

Keep in mind all that money you saved from not having paying someone too man. Plus the sense of accomplishment, and experienced gained.
