Alright, here's the official request.

No windshield.
35% on the front windows.
5% on all other windows.

Staying legal for once.

But in order for it to be legal don't all the windows need to be 35%? And I think you're only allowed 15% on the rear windows IF the front aren't tinted.

I'm waiting to hear from Greg about scheduling a tint day for the guys on the list, otherwise you can call and schedule an appointment in any of his open slots.

He had originally said he wanted everyone to get there by the end of this month, but I don't know that we can accomplish that given that we already pushed everything back several weeks.

Definitely still interested. I was going to ask if we can call and make our own appointments, but that defeats the purpose of the group buy.

Whats the popularity of tinting the windshield on cars?

Until Greg gets back to me about a blocked off tint day for us, I don't see any harm in calling to make individual appointments. Just be sure to let him know you are part of the TCG Group Buy to get the discounted price.

Yeah, he was fine with fitting me into a week day that he had open time. It's probably easier to contact Greg directly (when he is able to answer the phone). He is quite busy at his shop, so you may have to be a bit patient. For me, the results and the price were worth being a bit flexible with the time involved.

Greg is a pretty cool dude and definitely looks like he did an awesome job.

Greg hasn't gotten back to me yet about any group dates. I'll call him this week for an update. I would say just go ahead and schedule individually until we get a date set. Just let him know you are part of the TCG group buy.

There was actually a girl there at the desk answering calls while my Focus got tinted. You can try texting him as well. That main number is a cell phone.

I cleaned my back window the other day, and noticed some significant smudges/streaks that didn't clear up. It seems like there may have been some streaks on the glass when it was tinted. I'll be touching base with Greg to see how he will handle this, since it bothers me looking in the rearview mirror and seeing the streaks. They can't be seen from outside the car at least. The rest of the tint looks great now after a few weeks. It sucks that it's on the back glass, as I'm sure that's going to be a pain to pull the tint off the defrosters and from the third brake light. I'll report back as to how he handles it.

I'm going to stop by there on Friday for him to take a look at it. I tried with glass cleaner and a microfiber towel, and it didn't rub off, so we'll see how it goes...

I was able to get it off with a wet Absorber and good amount of pressure while rubbing. No issues now...
