Thanks. I would like to get my '67 windows tinted the light green color that resembles 1960's factory window tint.

Dont understand the IL line but the law here is screwed up..

If you have NO factory tint at all on any windows, you can have 35% on drivers/passenger front door, back doors and back window..

If you DO have factory tint on any windows, you can only go 50%..

Now here is the screwed up part..... If you have a van or SUV with rear only factory tints, you can only go 50% on front windows.... Really? but NO factory tint at all you can go 35%?

Windshields only the top 5-6".

Back in 1987, a friend of mine ran black limo tint on his '67 Chevelle in Oklahoma, and had no problems. Times have changed, though, I guess.

Illinois laws use to be anything older than 1984 or 1987 (can't remember which) you could have tinted any windows dark as you wanted except windshield.

#1. Every windshield has a small line with "AS1" written below it - so those states that have AS1 listed for windshield can only tint down to the AS1 line on the windshield.

#3. Where are you seeing FB and BB? Didn't see that anywhere in the .PDF..

Sorry, F-side and B-side. And "ANY" under % of light transmitted means what? That you can do limo tint black and it's ok?

I think that refers to the front and back seat side windows on 4 door vehicles.
