am I reading this right? :thumb

I do believe you are reading it right. But that doesnt make it so. It's pure and unadulterated BS.

That is consumer fraud. Even though it's incumbent on the consumer to check local laws, advertising the fact that the services provided are legal, when in fact they are not, is fraudulent, and opens this jackass up to all kinds of litigation possibilities. And hopefully, ALOT of them will happen soon. If perchance you live in Cali, a call to the States Attorneys office MIGHT pique some interest. They can at the very least force him to remove the ad and print a retraction. ANYONE who got tint from them because of the ad can sue for damages. :beer:shock

Dude is advertising legal tint, and thats ok, but the WINDSHIELD part is gonna get him busted. He's not really saying it's legal, but the wording "ENTIRE CAR" would lead you to believe that it is. Misleading at best. Hopefully, someone will sue him for 65 million. :beer

I just reported this jackass to Craigslist, and at 9:00 Cali time, I'm calling the dude and the States Attorneys Office. (Sometimes, having way too much time on your hands is FUN!!) Here is a copy of the complaint filed with Craigslist:

PostingID: 361250633

This ad for window tint is fraudulent. No where in California law does it permit tinting of the windshield. This opens the potential customer to misdemeanor criminal prosecution,(Fines and possibly jail) and reflects negatively on the LEGITIMATE industry of window tinting. Those of us involved in this industry are very outspoken about the issue of Illegal films being applied to cars. It's not fair to mislead the consumer, and COULD result in further legislative restrictions being imposed on an already overly legislated/restricted industry. Please remove this ad. I am contacting you about this, and am also making a call to the States Attorneys' office in San Jose.

Thank You,

I could read that as he is charging $120 for just the windshield strip. Some call the back glass a windshield also, more of a Europe thing......

Didn't Cali change the law to allow 70% too?

I just wasnt sure what to make of this :thumb

I appreciate Key West taking action on all this, but I dont want this site getting in trouble because of it.

No way can this site be held liable for this, this guy posted it..it's fact and can be torn apart. Besides maybe he is using Huper and is operating under the law...I don't see what film he is using and we can't jump to conclusions :thumb
