Default Any recomendations?

Hey i was just wondering if anyone would recomend a good (and by good i mean their quality of work is outstanding) tint shop. Im looking to get my 2IS 35% all windows cept the front windshield. Im pretty sure the leagal limit is 35% in Hawaii but I will double check that. Anyone know what can be done to the front windshield? Thanks

TNT Tinting is who Servco Lexus uses. I am going to have them tint the two front windowns on my RX350 soon. Hawaii law states:

Windshield Non-reflective tint is allowed on the top 4 inches of the windshield.
Front Side Windows Must allow more than 35% of light in.
Back Side Windows Must allow more than 35% of light in.
Rear Window Must allow more than 35% of light in.

Hope that helps.

Chuck

for the windows, there is a 7% leeway, so technically, you could go as low as 29%

I recommend Special-T Tinting, Al's Tinting, and Midnight Tinting. I've had good experiences with all three.

TNT is a major rip. Al's used to be good but their prices are getting a bit high, however their workmanship seems to be top notch. Midnight is a classmate of mine and I've heard good things about them too.

I have been taking all my cars to Al's. I recently took my Sc430 to him and he did excellent work.
