If you're going to tint cars, you really should invest in a tint meter.

I meter every roll and mark it on the box.

Then meter the clean glass and do the math.

It's usually within, + or - 3%.

Some GM trucks will meter below legal when tinted with 35%.

Try stocking some 40% to cover yourself.

To answer your original question, somewhere between 75ish and

80%, respectively.

Assuming, your tint laws are at minimum 32% net.

every film company is different on the actual VLT

I have had Johnson 35% meter 29.5% out of the box

LLumar ATR 35% meters higher so it is closer to the published VLT when it is applied to the glass

get a VLT meter :shock

every glass is different and every film is different

even from the same box

I concur :spit

on clear glass in general it has 83-71% already.

say you put 50% film on there it would get close to 30-35%

say ou put 70% film its gonna look like 50%

say you put 35% film its gonna look like 20%-25%

say you pout 20% film on there its gonna match all the factory tinted windows in the back :spit
