Window Tint....?

Thinking about smoking the windows on my 45 with 5% tint. I think it will look good with the black hull, dash and accents. Anyone done this? Not to concerned about the darkness as I rarely ride at night, and if so I sit on the bolster and view above the windshield. Post pics if ya have em...

Thanks....

There have been a couple threads on here. It has been done, I like the way it looks. It is harder to see stuff in the water though day or night. A friend of mine put tint on his and he hated it. It came off after a couple trips to the lake. There was even a guy that painted his black

I have done it to all of my X boats, I really like the look and the glare reduction. However 5% is way to low, IMO that would look a bit 80's. Mine have been 35%.

don't do 5%! Go with like 30% or 35% I did it on my X1 and it was ok, but not going to pay to have it done on my Xstar.

Looks good duck...

Here's my VERY POOR attempt at photoshopping... 5% may be too much, 15% may be better...

35% is the way to fly my friend, especially on a classy 45 like yours
