They are on Shelbyville Rd. in Middletown, beside the Autozone. It was $169 and I got 35% all around. It has a lifetime warranty and it came out pretty much flawless. I have a pic if you're interested in how it looks.

For all the tint discussion; 25% all around (no windshield) from Pro Tint on Poplar Level Road, Louisville. I think it was $139, but not sure. Lifetime warranty. Bad pics...

EDIT: 20%, not 25%. Price was $137

Hey Poytner!


Kirby, that tint looks nice, I was thinking of going 25% on the sides and back and 50% on the front. What do you think?

25% on the front doors is illegal in KY, but its done all the time. I don't like the look of different tint on the front and rear sideglass. If I ever get pulled over, I just roll the window all the way down before the LEO gets out of his vehicle. Only happened one time so far.

I think tinting the windshield is also illegal and would draw more unwanted attention because its rare. It would look good, but I would never risk it.

25% looks good on your car dkirby. I got 35% because I didnt want any hassle from the cops.

Thanks, I'm digging the 35% too. BTW, I pulled my paperwork to check the price at Pro Tint. It was $137 after tax, but I had the %age wrong. It's actually 20%, not 25%. I edited my earlier post accordingly.

I'm not sure what kind of tint I would want, but i guess I would maybe go 75% at the most on the windshield so it doesn't look off compared to the sides. I like your 119's va. Im starting to wonder if I could try to make mine Time Attack.

Can't remember the name. They had two choices, but only one came with a lifetime warranty. I went with that one.

Orly? I live in Buckner, Oldham County. Is that where your brother lives? Lot of cookie cutter neighborhoods these days.
