    Question Window Tint Recommendation in Philly Area

    Yes, I know it is the wrong time of year to ask. But, I want to get my windows tinted mostly for my privacy. Is there a place that does a good job here in Philly, S. Jersey, or in the suburbs? I want to go with 28% tint (front windows), 15% on all others, which is legal in Florida (my car has Florida plates - and I take a few trips to my condo every year). I think PA allows 35%.

    A guy I work with has a friend with a tint shop. He says he can do just about any window in one piece. (no lines)

    I'll get some contact info later.

    Thanks.. I would like to see an example of the work as well beforehand, if possible.

    A little PA window tinting info I found a while back and saved in my favorites. It's kinda interesting.

    On a side note, I have 20% all around on my integra and have never had any issues, in case that was a concern for you. I guess it'll vary by area though

    Had my STI done by a place on rte 73 just over the river in NJ. They are fantastic. Arizona signs and tinting. Glasstint specialists. Outstanding job. All one piece, no seems. Pm me if you want the particulars, because he has really good pricing now since it is off season. He also does great clearbra work. SFRinNJ

    Looks good! What are those swirl marks on the paint? Did you buff the car with an orbital waxer?

    I really don't know, I've been meaning to see if I could get that out, somehow. Not sure, and of course, it has to be winter so I won't be able to get anything done now.
