btw im pretty sure its illegal to have any tint on your front windows in California.[/b]
Driver windows are 70%, back 3 are anything goes.

I'm debating whether to just get tint on the front anyway...Do you guys think it's worth it to tint the front windows at the risk of getting pulled over and ticketed?

Heh, thanks. I spent a lot of time and effort on those rims, so it's always nice to hear compliments.

I also replaced the dome light with a blue LED.. I'll snap a picture later.

edit: blurry, cause my camera sucks at nighttime shooting.



It's actually alot brighter than it seems...

You can always get a note from your Optometrist for Tint. At least in Michigan if you have a note from your eye doc it's technically legal. I got a fix-it ticket from a MI State Cop and showed the ticket and scrip to one of the local cops and he just signed off on the ticket. No tint removal needed :)

"Hey i need a ticket for my tint or i'm going to have to pay to have something removed that i paid to have put on. Hook me up?"

And i picked it up the next day :p The guy's an old friend's dad so i had that going for me which was nice.
I had a friend have the same problem and his doc wouldn't write him a scrip so i told him to go to Sears and get an eye exam and a tint scrip there too. Worked just peachy haha.

However i just found THIS that says in CA, "State law does NOT allow medical exemptions that would allow you use special tint." :( Plus you guys have to have pretty regular vehicle inspections don't you? So they'd probably screw you over there. Though i have heard of people getting inspections and no one mentioned a thing. I guess it's just luck of the draw i guess...like when i showed the tint ticket i got from a state cop to the local cop he literally laughed because he thought it was stupid. Some cops just care others don't i guess...

Hmmm... Glossy, huh. I should try that when it comes time to repaint the rims. Thanks for the idea.

Yup, I'm in SoCal. I'm planning on an all around 35%.

I've seen better looking blacks, hydralover.
Have you waxed recently or not?[/b]
I waxed it just before taking these pics... what do you mean?
