After alot of checking and reassurance, today I had all my front side windows tinted with smoke film that had a fairly low absorption (less material heat retention) and rated at 35 light transmission...also went with a 13" limo band across the top of the windshield....factory tint is 9"...I figger an extra 4 " wont get me busted...probably could have gone deeper...I measured the window temp with an infra red meter with the film on along one that was still virgin next to it...the sun was out and hitting it....only 6-7 degrees difference...I dont think THAT small difference will cause a seal to fail or not...too soon to notice any difference yet, but Im SURE I wont feel like Im in a greenhouse as badly!!
