Window Tinting

Sorry if this is in the wrong catagory for this thread.

What can I expect to pay for a window tint job on a minivan EXCLUDING the drivers and front passenger windows and obviously the windshield?

Next question: Is after-market window tint 1-way or 2-way?

Last question: I am a very, very good difficult is it to tint my own minivan?

tinting with out wrinkles is mostly a matter of using lots of soapy water and carefull squeegeeing to pull the wrinkles. don't go with limo tint, it will cut your night vision tremendously and in my opinion should be illegal for that reason.

the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.

Expanding a little on Speedwrench; check laws in your state first and make sure whoever does the job abides by the maximum tinting allowed. Could avoid being stopped by law enforcement regularly if it is illegally dark.

After tinting go to local Law Enforcement and have the tint tested, around here they will put a sticker on it saying it is ok, helps alot in a traffic stop.

New Jersey state law regarding tinting:

Windshield: - No tint is allowed on the windshield.

[B]Front Side Windows:[/B-] No tint can be applied legally to
this window.

Back Side Windows - Any darkness can be used.

Rear Window- Any darkness can be used.

As for price, I can get all my windows (except windshield) done here for about $200-250.

Does anyone know if the aftermarket tint is 2-way or 1-way?

Just semi-tint, not the black stuff.........exactly like OEM tint.

If its just a grey or green type tint, then its going to have the same effect, looking in or looking out.

Mirror tint is different.
