35% all around minus windshield. I figured I'll keep it legal this time. I usually go with. 20%

My 13' Fucus

20%, All around... Case Closed!





I'm thinking about Night Shading my tail lights, reflectors, and my side mirror lenses.

You'll need titanium headlights too. Or mod those to be black housing.

Finally getting to the stage where i'm thinking about doing tints on my focus. NJ law is Nothing on the Windshield or the front windows but I can do any percentage on the back windows and rear window. Originally I thought I would do 5% on the back windows, the rear window and the sunroof but I feel like that might be too dark. I also was thinking about doing something on the front even though it's illegal. Maybe 50% since that seems to be OK from most people.

Would 5% be too dark? Even though I can do it should I go for something like 20%?

IMO 5% is excessive and I like to be able to see out my windows at night and I have 20% all around and it works for me. I do recommend doing 15% on the sunroof since that will allow you to have the shade pulled back for light but really cuts the heat to near zero.

The best way to cut the heat down is, tinting the windshield.

Hey! It's another Calvin, and you spell it like me! Your taillights look almost like GTO covers. Slick.
