You just have to be careful not to get paint on the seats.
I know a guy who actually did that on his old 80's GM pickup.

Are you having any problems seeing at night when backing up going 5% in the back?

The back can go all the way to 0%, as long as it's non-reflective.

I was thinking maybe doing
50% Driver/Passenger
20% Rear and back seats

What do you guys think?
15% all around then, 35% on the windshield.

Pictures can be found here.

I have 5% on the back of my focus and if there are not any street lights it is nearly impossible to see out the back at night.

I painted the sunroof in the Talon... Have to do something until I can source a new roof skin.

You're also not legally obligated to have windows past the front two seats if, you have to side mounted rear view mirrors. So, there is no reason that painting them is wrong.

It's not horrible. But I have to take my shades off when in a parking garage. I always open my door when backing up. Can't tell where the bumper ends. I have done a slow back into a co workers Maurano. No damage! Thinking maybe a back up camera or sensors.
