well, a good job is a job with no bubbles or white spots around the window (though it does happen a lot of times)
depending on what is the legal tint in your state, i'd suggest getting a warranty that if the cop pulls you over and you have to remove the tint, they'll replace it for free, or if it becomes purple or bubbles appear, they will replace that for free too.... so w/e you gonna get, i highly suggest getting it from a place with lifetime warranty

Legal for GA is 32 percent. I wouldn't go lower than that anyway because you'll feel like you're sitting inside of a grave.

As for a good tint shop ... hm, can't help you there.

32% is kinda weak. If you really want to keep in line with the law then you wouldnt speed. I'd recomend 20% at your own risk. It looks good and is still easy to see out at night. Do this at your own risk as you may get a fix-it ticket.

I think I would have to disagree with the 35% tint grave comment. I had 35% on my last truck, and it wasn't even worth having. I couldn't even tell that it had been tinted.

I have 5% in the back and 15% in the fronts and I love it. It is really dark, but if you went with 15% all around, or maybe one shade lighter it wouldn't be that bad at all.

I have 5% all around and GA statey pulled me over after nearly running over 4 cars to get to me. J*rk! Its a $95 fine in GA FYI. Your right about 35% not even worth it I might risk 20% alla around, cops ya gotta love em.
