You'll get em. Right now I'm sorting out getting the dash painted and getting some replacement parts. Well, hrm, lemme go out and see if I can take some in the garage without the flash messing them up.

I'm still in the middle of my splurging, so expect a lot more razz

Btw, who is it that I've seen around here with the Riviera logo on the under-hood insulation painted? I'd love to experiment with that and different colors

PostSubject: Tint?   Mon Mar 24, 2008 10:52 pm

My dad wants to get his car tinted and thinks we can get a deal from this place if we do both our cars at once , Its a place ive gone to several times with great results and i trust their work completely. They offer a lifetime warranty tint as well.
Any opinions good or bad are welcome.

Also not where i live. Its florida... it gets really really hot.

Get it done... Its better for your eyes and car anyway. I think it protects your interior somewhat from the effects of the sun.. What % are you getting.

I would go at least the legal limit.
The upside: Cooler interior, less sunfade on interior pieces, better 'protection' from prying eyes if you leave/have anything valuable in your car.
The downside: these cars aren't the best for blind spots.. If you go dark, it makes it that much tougher to see out of at night...

I say go for it. was one of the best things I did. Cooler (california) and UV protection.
Downside is I got pulled over for it and have to go to court to prove it's legal. Here we can get a note from a doctor/optometrist to clear it.

I've never noticed any difficulty seeing at night. Then again, I've never driven a car at night that didn't have very dark tint. Definately tint it though.

I'd think the interior rearview mirror would have a hard time adjusting through darker tint.

Eh, I don't think it works with the tint anymore but I don't really care the tint makes up for it. I'm not sure how well the thing even worked without tint in the first place.

Mine works great with no tint. Of course, if your tint is dark enough, brights in the rearview won't be much problem.

Well thats what the dimmer on the mirror is for. I'd just like to keep the car cooler in the summer.

I've got really dark tint on my Riv and haven't gotten any trouble about it (knock on wood). Not sure the percentage but it's probably down around 10% or so. I hate non-tinted windows, I don't want everyone looking into my car and seeing what I'm doing since as a general rule most people who would look into my car aren't cops.
