Lancaster area

First off, hello to all fellow PA'ers. I am in the Lancaster area ( East Pete). I just had my windows tinted factory match and now I am concerned about inspection. Any of you fellas know an inspection station that would be friendly. And if ya see a white cc around, please wave.

If you get up near Pottstown the Ford dealer I go to for inspection hasn't said anything about mine the past two years and mine are pretty dark (too dark for my liking though they do look nice). That's a bit of a hike just for inspection though, unless you work up this way. Couldn't hurt to drive up to a place and just flat out ask them if they inspect it with the windows. My Grand Prix has tinted front windows and I never had inspection issues with that either.

If they are just a match you will probably not have an issue. look for a tint shop locally and ask for a referal if you have questions or ask the station before they do the inspection.

I'm from lancaster county too, just above the Mason-Dixon. Anyone know of a place around to have tint removed. Mine has some really dark tint when I bought it and can't see out the dang thing at night. I would do it myself but i'm afraid that I am going to get the glue stuck in the track.

I live near philly and every car I own is tinted. You will be fine with tint on a pick-up truck. The guys around here that get harassed drive tuner cars (Hondas..etc). I have never had a inspection issue with tinted windows, no one cares....you'll be good.
