Dolphin Window Tint

2007 Dolphin Lx

I just tinted the drivers and passengers windows with tint 35%. I also had the entry door tinted to match the rest of the coach. The main reason I tinted is to cut down on the heat and I like the look. My windows are double pain.

Take a short loop in the dark before you take your next trip to check your visibility.
I did ours and discovered I couldn't see anything out the side windows with the tint we had installed. We were in a strange city when we made the discovery which made it even more fun!
We redid everything with different stuff to solve the problem.

Don't come to NY state, that will cost you about $120 per window in fines and surcharges,

Better check other states too

Driver and passenger not legal in CA. Had them done on my Yukon, got stopped by CHP on the 40 outside Barstow. Had to remove the tinting, no fine.

Well, you got some negative feedback on your project, TCHB. Good luck with the results. I was told not to tint double pane windows because the extra heat absorbed can make one or both panels break.
