Question Clear Bra/Tint Shops Chicagoland Area

Looking to get a clear bra done on the front bumper, fenders, mirrors, and maybe the hood (might be too noticeable). Also wanna get tint done.
Not sure if I should tint the fronts because I drive around the city a lot. Would be nice to have everything done in one place. Any recommended shops?


Thanks!

No one in the Chicago land area had tints or clear bra done?

these kind of questions come up a lot....do a search and you will probably find your information a lot quicker. I just did a search for clear bra in the Chicago forum and there are about 4 threads relating...good luck...here is a recent one Geroge posted up about tints

On the IS300 I had the bumper / hood / mirror kit.
In addition I had a 20mm film put on the my fog lights / head lights / door cups (to prevent scratches from finger nails / rings)






On the TC I have the bumper / hood / mirror kit.
In addition I also did the headlights.











Is it worth it?
Absolutely.

Thanks for the pics! My car is silver as well so it gives me an idea of what it is going to look like. I am thinking of doing only bumper and mirrors because it seems that the hood piece is very noticeable.

What tint did you end up getting? I am hesitant to tint the front windows because I drive around Chicago a lot and they give mucho tix for tints. Then again tinting just the rears might not look so great.

Vik, in another thread aliti19 said that he had a good hookup and a few others went there and were pleased.

Perhaps we can go at the same time? I need my 35 all around again like I had on the 330.

Sorry I got back to you so late. I forgot to check this forum. Yea, let me know when you are going. Did you have a lot of trouble with 35 all around?

You guys are always just talking about the darkness of the tint. Have you guys ever tried the tints that are supposed to block out the heat and keep the car cool in the winter? I'm interested in getting my IS tinted this weekend, and am not sure what brand of the actual tint is good. But I know I definitely want a type that keeps the car cooler on the hot summer days.

Do these tint shops usually carry a variety of different brands? thanks
