Front window tint recomendations?

hey guys, i want to tint my two front windows either 5 % or 20% im not sure yet . but i want to do it my self, do to money cost. I saw pre cut kits like this one on ebay. eBay Motors: Ford F250 F-250 Crew Cab 99-07 Front Window Tint Kit (item 220290488794 end time Apr-06-09 17:30:00 PDT) . i remember buying a cheap tint from pepboys and it looks purple, it was not good. i friend of mine says you got buy the 3m stuff the pros use. but idk were to buy it? do you think the plane rolls they sell on ebay are the crappy purple looking tint? also 5% or 20% that is the question!?

most of the tint you just buy at places will turn purple after a while, ive heard to go with the 3m stuff as well, but i dont know where to get it, did you check 3m's website? and the 20% i think will be a lighter than the back, and the 5% should match pretty close, could be a little bit darker, depending on what tint you use.

My 97 OBS has 5% on both sides and rear as well as an eyebrow which is 5%...I really like it in the daytime but for nighttime its a good idea to roll the sidewindows down to see if anybody's coming...Since I bought it in Missouri and I live in Kansas it had to get inspected before it got tagged. I was surprised that the the cop didn't say anything about it since 35% is the legal limit in KS.

Oh and just FYI in case you didnt know the reason window tint turns purple is from washing the windows with a cleaner that contains ammonia
