2008 tint

I want a darker window tint on my freedom top windows. Does anybody know the the dark tint number used at the factory? Also, any ideas on the best after market place to have it done?

Google window tinting in your area. A decent shop will have a light meter and be able to tell you the tint level. Not sure you'll get anyone to tint over them tho' since the factory tint is the legal limit in most states.

Can soft top windows be tinted by a shop? I thought you had to buy the tinted ones.

30% on factory. We tint 30% on all our stock units. I put 15% on all my own vehicles. The soft tops can be tinted just fine the only problem I had is I dont have templates and the ones I hand cut left some gap around the edges. I didnt like it so I stripped the tint.

Tint on the soft windows looks like any other window. I've been tinting for 5 years.

Wow, thanks, I had no idea. I know someone who does window glass who has a tinter he works with. I never thought to ask him because I just figured you couldn't tint the plastic windows. I'm definitely going to speak to him now.

Everyone says they cant do it cause the longevity isn't as good as glass. I've tinted a spare soft top window and left it in the sun for two weeks. Folded the window, roughed it up, done everything I could to make it mess up and I couldnt. It was dirty because it was an old window but no bubbles or peeling. I even put some tint strip on it and stripped it off like a regular glass window and it came off perfectly fine.
