When I had devon's car done I just made an appointment and waited. Two hours would be about right as I remember. They did a great job.

jonmentzer is on a distinguished road
law enforcement is very touchy about side window tinting ,they cant see inside if its tinted to much. tinting can also cause you to fail state inspection. a good tint shop will know how much to do.

I guess I should have said "Most normal people do not tint thier windshields"

For a street driven car you need to have a few screws loose to tint the windshield.

Moe did my last 3 corvettes. He charges a little more for the vette, says the back window is tough. He has a tint thing on his wall. Whats legal, whats not. The last time I was in there, a young kid was in there getting his tint removed. He got a ticket in Newtown. My vette has an illegal tint and I never had a problem yet. You get the wrong cop, you know the rest. Windshield tint, Why. Your just looking for trouble.
