Default Window Tint

Dose anyone in the club know or have a friend who dose window tint ?
I'm looking to have the LS400 done in 5% (I know it's illegal) but I also need the current film removed. I've removed b4 but would rather avoid the task. B&T Bedliners already gave me a quote. And he also said that the tint guys use a steam gun to remove the old tint.

Dose anyone have a steam gun I could borrow ?

Most places will go 5% without providing a receipt... so they can't be nailed by authorities. In Florida where I grew up, it was pretty standard to go dark, just as long as you knew they wouldn't own up and change it out when you get busted.

FWIW, I ran 5% in my 40 and another car for a while and the ability to see at night is a real drawback, I took it off both vehicles (fronts windows only) just to be able to see better at night. The 40 had especially bad reflections with the windows that dark. Just a heads up. I loved the dark stuff when I lived in Texas as the 40 stayed noticeably cooler!
