Default Recommend tint shop

Anyone know which tint shop I can go to besides TNT tinting? Last time I bought my GS there, they didn't know how to take the back light off so they ended up cutting a hole in the back window around the light.

I've been off the islands for a while but, since i came back, seen so much new stuff/shops. Where do you guys go for aftermarket stuffs? Eurosports is not the same anymore...they don't have much stuff now.

chikken, about tint... usually there a thread in ForumsHawaii about tint, i goto MD Tinting in kailua and unfortunately they charge an arm n a leg... 350 for my car BUT im very satisfied with the quality of their work, even thou i know its a ripoff... i still go

As for shops, check out Samson at Revision Audio for VIP stuffs, its who i goto and he doesnt rip you off.

I've taken my G35, IS300 and GS430 at Protint in Kalihi. Prices are reasonable for quality work.

I refer all my friends and my family there. I had three of my cars done there and they take good car of them. Art's shop is in Halawa. Just call Art and ask for a quote. Let him know Derrick referred you. Oh by the way, he can go dark too.

btw: since your safety check is good for 2yrs, that means you got a new car, do share what you got?
