    Some Photos also added some white LED's to the side vent and connected them to the turn signals looks sick at night! The only reason I do a lot of light mods is because im practically an electrical engineer and have so many LED strips just laying around... and currently I cant afford any decent perf. mods or anything.

    Do you have any profile shots to illustrate how light/dark the front 50% tints are compared to the rears? I'm on the fence about getting 45 or 50%

    I do not. but the 50% is very light... during the day you can see through it pretty clearly, at night with the interior lights dimed you can only see the outline/motions of the people inside as long as there aren't like a bunch of streetlights. I went with the legal limit so I could get the tint warrantee and because Ive gotten 2 too many tickets <_<

    Made a video of me doing some things after hurricane sandy. Went down a couple of dirt roads, messed up trying to get sideways, and got a video of my custom turn signals in the side vent!
