However it played out, they cleaned up after themselves and the car interior was pristine. I know because I detailed the interior plastics as soon as I came home.

That photo was taken 8 hours after installation. It's some interplay with the defroster no doubt.

I went with 70% 3M Crystalline all around with 90% on the sunroof. In FL, you have to get a prescription and apply for a sate DOT waiver to do the windscreen to make it legal.

Does windshield clear tint affect HUD?

I'm considering 3m clear on windshield for heat reduction. After reading up on it here, I'm wondering if it's a bad idea as far as the HUD goes. Anyone done it?
