Full Windsheild 35% with 5% strip?

Recommended Posts

If you are going to do a windshield with a front strip, first - tint the whole windshield, then do the front strip as you normally would, after the whole windshield is tinted.  

 

35% is not recommended for windshields as it is too dark at night and during the rain.   This is not fact, just the overwhelming opinion of most respectable tinters.  50% is the limit for most tinters that care about the industry.  :twocents

Customer wants full windsheild 35% plus a 5% sun strip. Is that possible?

After educating the customer on the film specs of a lighter film, I can usually talk them out of it. Same goes for customers wanting 5% film, which I rarely do.

I have found that most requests made for Dark tint on windshield are made by those who are:

1) Young;

2) Male;

3) think that the most serious consequence possible is a fix-it ticket

4) likely don't have any assets of consequence to lose if the reductionist thinking illustrated by belief #3 turns out to be wrong.

5) and would throw the tint shop owner under the bus in a heartbeat despite their claim they don't need a receipt if they thought it would save their own ass.

Couldn't have said it better. 

#4 also applies to tinter that applies the dark tint on w/s
