MA Tint Shops

Can anyone suggest a reputable tint shop somewhere in the North Shore (Beverly, Salem, Lynn) Area? Moved to the area a few months back and I honestly have no clue where to start looking. Anything I should be looking out for in terms of getting decent quality? Lastly, what are the legal limits for MA? I'm looking at 35% up front and 10-20% for the rear, would I be able to get away with this? I know the Si has mild tints as stock, so what would I need to add to make up those percentages?

Cheers

I just said give me the legal limit. SO he did 35% all around. Haven't been hassled once, and it looks really clean. I don't know what kind of tint he used, but he assured me that they don't have the stuff that will ruin your radio reception or anything like that. I highly recommend Tint King. Theres a nice pub or something across the street if you wanna have a few beers while you wait.

Just be careful with tints man, i had 35% all around on my Mazda and never once was i hassled by police, BUT when it came time for inspection i failed because my tints were too dark. I even stood there when they scanned my tints, i had like 27-30% the tint meter was reading. Thats cuz of the natural tint in the glass threw the tint off by a couple numbers and they refused to pass me...In the end I took it else where and passed but wow it was a nightmare.

35% is nice because like I said never once was I hassled with police but damn that inspection....Now I got 20% and in another state

This guy is decently close.

Solar Solutions Tinting - Automotive

He uses plotter cut films so no worries about scratches in the glass. He offers Suntek Carbon and Madico Charcool both will give decent heat rejection and no AM reception loss.
