WA State Tint Laws

You may tint your vehicle to 24% VLT for the front doors of any SUV. The back half can be any darkness you prefer. As for passenger vehicles, you may tint up to 24% on all windows except the windshield. All windshield tinting can only be tinted to a max of 6″ from the top or the as1 mark. The article below is from the Washington State Patrol as of 2009. With this in mind, we do offer an assortment of window film options, and can help guide you to a film that fits your indvidual needs.

  • 3M Protection

    3M Paint Protection

    3M Scotchgard™ Paint Protection Film, also known as clear bra, maintains the beauty and integrity of your vehicle’s finish. Paint Protection Film can be used on any exterior painted surfaces that are vulnerable to road debris such as hoods, bumpers and fenders. Paint Protection Film is also perfect for those “wear and tear” areas such as the top of the rear bumper near the trunk, rocker panels, front & rear wheel openings, door edges, and door handle cups.

    This rugged urethane film helps protect against rock chips, scratches, bug damage, abrasion and weathering. 3M Scotchgard™ Paint Protection Film is transparent and nearly invisible, and it does not alter vehicle appearance.
