Kevin,
It's one of those deals here in the lovely state of PA that is vague. I'm a licensed PA mechanic but just for hobby. Wife was pulled over 10 years ago for tint on her car but that's it. We paid the fine... I have had tint on every car I've owned for the past 10+ years but there's always a risk of getting cited.

With that said, wifes car is being tinted Wednesday lol! PM me if you have any questions. You drive almost right by out house. :-P

Not sure if this worked. I have 20% on my windows and then a sun strip accross the top of the windshield, I love it. I also had the clear bra done as well. Sorry bout the car not being clean, she just got home from the dealership, 20 miles down a big infested highway.

Came through perfect and looks really good. You'll have to update with some more pics later from back and sides.

Sadly, it's not vague at all. Our tint laws mirror the Federal Regs.

Hey general question for everyone. I've never gotten my windows tinted before and as I understand it the tint can be cloudy for a few days afterwards and that I need a chamois and foam to clean them after like 5 days. How well does the cloudiness clean up? 100% ?

I think I'm going to go with Formula1 ceramic, 30% all around when I finally get my ride. There is a shop here in woodbridge that gets good reviews and they gave me a $350 quote.

Looks fantastic. You have my color combination too so it's awesome to see what the final product will look like when I get my car.

I have had about 6 cars tinted in Texas and have never seen it be "cloudy" for a few minutes let alone a few days nor had to clean them with a chamoi and foam. paper towel and a non-alcohol cleaner.

Here are some pictures after getting my windows tinted. 35% front and 20% back. My focus, so far, was the first one that this person had done. I think he did a good job...we'll see how it looks after it cures.
