Problems tinting windshield?

I’m in Texas too. How does the state sticker affect the windshield tint. I’m concerned about removing old sticker and damaging the tint? 

We use a clear vinyl static rectangle and stick the registration sticker to that then stick it to the windshield.  That way you can pull it off without damaging the film. We only do 80% clear UV film.

Be careful tinting your windows!! Some will say nothing below the "AS1" Line, some say 4 inches some say 6 inches etc... What may be legal in your state may not be legal in another. By that I mean if it's legal in your state and you drive into another state "They CAN get you!!! Most states do not allow much other than factory tint on driver and passenger side windows but its OK to tint back and rear side windows completely black. I know of many folks whos tint had to be removed "ON-SITE" before being allowed to continue!!

This probably isn’t true.. if this were the case, you could get pulled over and ticketed for not having a front plate in states that require 2 plates.

By the way I am a former officer on a state level. All operators of motor vehicles must comply with vehicle requirements (Private or Commercial) in the state in which they are operating a vehicle. Plates and Window tint are separate issues!

This is totally true. If the police officer wants to enforce his state law on window tint. He has every right too. Most don’t because they see you have a different license plate. But they can. My sister lived in Nebraska. Drove over to Iowa and got pulled over for her tint because there front window laws are different.

You are correct when you say "Most Don't" BUT they can!!
