Just keep in mind that tint percentages are more of an approximation than an exact science. You can take 2 rolls of the same film from the same manufacturer and end up with them being different by a percentage point or two just from variables in the dyeing process. The same can be said for the actual glass. I always use 70% as the number for clear glass. It's usually +/- a few percentage points of 70. Even different meters can read the tint differently. I've had a car metered by 3 different cops, all on the same tint job, within weeks of each other and ended up with 3 different readings.
