Default Window Tint in WA?

Does anyone know where a good window tint shop is in Washington? I'm in Tacoma and looking to tint my windows. If you have pics please post

May want to try the regional "Pacific" part of the forum and see if you get answers there

I will need to do a new set of pics since the fronts sides were changed to F1 Pinnacle 35 under the warranty. Seems to blend in visually against the rear better which normally looks darker because more light comes in from the front.

Llumar Air Blue 80 (with and without flash)




F1 Pinnacle 40 all-around (no flash)

I did mine at Northwest Auto salon in Lynnwood. They are kind of pricey but their work is awesome.

I've done all my tints through a shop in Bremerton. Does really good work and will do any tint you want for cash. Fair prices too. I haven't taken my Is350 there yet but I'm going to. I can send you some pics later if you want.

A family friend recommended that place to me for tint as well, although I just went there to have the 3M rock chip protection film put on.

I also had my car tinted there. Tiny shop but their work was flawless. If I remember right, it cost me about $175 for 35% tint (wanted to keep it legal.)

Accutint shoreline is awesome too. Had my IS tinted there twice. First time ceramic at 30% and the 2nd time with just carbon tint at 30% with 50% on the windshield. Greg gave me a great deal. They also did my clearbra too.

Custom Auto Tint
Tacoma Area
‎(253) 536-2284

He's done three of my cars and 3 of my friends. Clean shop, and superior work but charges a lot less than the shops up north. My Lexus was done 3 years ago with Sun Tek Carbon series film and it's in pristine condition.

I went with 25% all around.

With some sunlight


No flash....low light, old pic.
