How exactly do you do the inspection sticker??? I am wanting to put 50% on the shield will you be able to tell that its tinted??? I dont want it to be really visible cuz I dont want the popos on my case! My plan is to put 15% on the sides to match the factory on the back then put tint the windshield 50% and on top of that a 15% brow!!

Tint right over the sticker. Do a 5% brow and then the 50% and it wont hardly be noticable that the whole thing is tinted. I did 5 and 35 on mine last week. I'll take pics tomorrow.

It actually would be better to put the 50% down first so you dont have the line of where the brow and whole shield tint meet. Kinda like a air bubble but all the way across your windshield...understand?

50% isnt noticeable enough to get busted IMO

Most places will also cut around your inspection sticker so you would have a chance at getting it inspected.

Yeah I would put the 50 down first then put the brow on it! I think I would be fine as long as it was cut perfect to my sticker! I have a buddy that works at a shop where I can get it inspected! I think I'm gunna go to the eye doctor and get a prescription for window tint!

If you do the 50% or 35% whatever you choose first, then you cant hardly see the darker tint of the brow through it. I've tried it both ways. It looks a lot better with doing the brow first. You can't hardly see the line on my windshield between the tint.

Word I love oklahoma no inspection. I have to say tho if i was an eye doctor and someone wanted a note to say they needed the windows tinted cause the sun gave them headaches. My first responce wouldn't be give the note and say have the windsheild tinted. It would be go to walmart and buy some damn sunglasses. But I want mine done also. I just can't believe eye doctors are falling for this and giving notes out.

I have my inspection sticker on first with the tint laid over it. It would be too obvious imo if the 35% tint was under the sticker.
If you're only doing 50% then get it tinted first and then put the sticker on. I wouldn't even cut around it. The inspection people won't even notice with it being only 50%. They will notice if there is a peice cut out when they go to put the new one on. Get what I'm saying?

Here's mine.

How'bout you take it off yourself prior to inspection.
