Where to tint front windshield in GTA area?

I'm looking to get my front windshield tinted 50%. I know this is illegal and many reputable tinters/tint companies won't do it.

Anyone know of a good tinter/tint company that will tint the front windshield? Feel free to PM me the details if you don't want to share publicly. I'm not looking for a kijiji special where they do a hack job...

That's a brilliant idea.

Should we keep an eye on the news?

Liang, it's a really bad idea. It's like always driving around with sunglasses on. Even at night. There's a reason why it's illegal to do so...

If u get the minimum tint it hardly affects the night driving, but provides a lot more privacy. Id recommend my tint guy, buy he passed away at 42 a couple of months ago. I'm gonna need to find somebody myself for the next car. If u find a good place pls let me know!

That's old school.

The way i did it is to get a negative polarized screen put on the windshield essentially a clear dot matrix. Add relay, capacitor and switch, some wiring involved. Once activated the positive charge changes the appearance of glass to a mirror effect. Chrome if you like.
Kinda pricey just parts alone but works great.
I should post up a DIY

Ask your insurance company, they will do it for free.

Yes
You can shut it off also and it looks like normal.
I'm going to tap in a gain knob so it is adjustable.
