      Evening all.....I purchased a 1993 Explorer XLT about 2 months ago, and I am looking to tint my driver/passenger windows. Would someone be able to tell me where or who I could talk to in order to find out the color or percentage of tint on the rear windows?
      Thanks!:exp:

      Does yours have the "mirrory" looking tint?

      The best match I found is from Autozone, it's called "Gila Xtreme Gunmetal Mirror Tint," it's 35% light emitting and 20% light reflective. Seriously had a friend of mine who is a professional Automotive/Residential window tinter try for an entire day using a hundred different combos to match the rear, only to have a $15 roll of tint from Autozone match it perfectly.. ugh. I suggest getting it professionally installed though so it actually comes out right.. you'd be surprised at the difference between a contaminated tint job.

      The only thing wrong with it is from the inside, the Gila tint is smoked colored whereas the factory tint has that gold/amber hue to it. But I don't mind it, very rarely do I look out the rear windows anyways...


      Good luck!

      Welcome to this forum! There should be a code number some where on the glass. Go to an auto glass shop such as Safelite.
