Where to buy DARK tinted soft top windows?
 
Does anyone know where to buy dark tinted soft top windows? Im looking for something around 10% give or take... front full doors are 20%...
The plastics I have on there now I believe to be 30% but theyre a bit beat up and would like to have some darker ones to drive around town with...
I'd use the old ones to beat on when out on the trails...

I've been looking on a bunch of sites to buy these and I cant find any darker than 30%... heck I cant find anything at all other than clear and 30%...

Anyone know where to buy these??

Thanks a bunch in advance...

SOL. Companies only tend to sell things that are legal in most states.

Understand where you are headed-but that dark of tint in a "box" when driving at night is really bad. Speaking from experience my '94 hardtop had "limo" tint on all windows-windshield was not that dark but about 30-35% Couldn't see in the mirrors and dim headlights on other cars were non existent. I changed to a more usable tint after about a month. Yeah it looked great black on black on black-with windows blacked out-but wasn't a show vehicle I wanted to drive it SAFELY!

X3. Unlike glass windows, we can't apply a tint film after the fact - it needs to be manufactured into the vinyl. So we can't adjust tint levels for various states. Places like Nevada and Arizona prefer - and allow - a much darker tint than Washington and Maine.*

Ya i agree, thats why Im only looking to tint the back windown daeker... Front is staying 20%... N im not doing the windshield...
My last car had 3% all around and 10% on the windshield... To put that in perspective, limo is 5%... so im used to the dark dark windows...
Also, ill still have my original plastics incase i dont like it...
