Very good question. I was actually looking to post this same question as I am scheduled to have my car tinted this weekend.Sorry, VLT = Visible Light Transmission
I am looking to tint my ride and my state law has a VLT threshold that is a combination of the film and window's VLT. I figured the factory glass has some tint to it so I was curious if anyone knew.
A good read. Thanks. I suppose it's optional for a manufacturer to list the VLT or tint. I definitely saw the Chevy (or was it a Ford lol) have 50% clearly on the glass.
I've never tinted windows before, can you post about the job and how hard it is? The local guys are charging $499 to do my car. (All windows with ceramic tint)I found this thread:
Which indicates the stock factory "solar" glass has 74% VLT. So when I put it with this:
I should get 74% x 35% = 25.9% Net VLT
Texas law states:
"Front Side windows: Must allow more than 25% of light in."
