PM me for info. I have a guy in Logan Square that did mine & my sis's car for $120 each last year. Sorry, my hand was a little shaky on my first shot.
The last pic was from earlier this summer.
35% up the sides and 20% on rear.

UPDATE: He charges $140 now, which is still a good deal.

nice aliti!

damn, $120? not bad.

i'm thinking about getting 30-35% tints. do you like the 35% you've got or do you wish you went a little darker? also, do you like the overall quality of the tints?

anyway, clean ride and thanks for pics/reply

No, i'm VERY happy with the 35%. It has a nice smoke color during the day and it looks dark as hell when it's dark or cloudy. Plus, the cops don't bother you as much with the 35% b/c they can see in the car easier.
Quality is top notch. I've had it for 13 months now, & it still looks great.

shaded days, lake bluff. Little pricey, but awesome work. Use LLumar ATR, lifetime warranty against fade. $275

That's who i used for my 2 Maximas before I found this guy in the city. Shaded Days did a great job as well, but it's too expensive.

Was it still $120?

Did you have to drop off the car or were you able to wait?

yup, got it for $120

you can wait there if you want. i wouldn't recommend waiting though. the tinting took 2 hrs. i went with my boy, and we were pretty bored 'cause there's really nothing in the area besides a philly's best. Take an extra car with you..lol
