What percentage tint and product are best for the windshield?
Can't speak to HUD, but, did all windows including windshield in Llumar "AirBlue 80". Was done in late spring before it got warm here. Took a full day for the tint to cure because of low temps, so there was some distortion (like tearing eyes") until the next morning. Suggestion would be to get first appointment on hot day and pick up just before closing to avoid this. Others have commented before on how well this keeps interior cooler and I'll have info after New Years as to if it helped prevent skin lesions from UV due to meds (70% chance of at least 1 in first year). There hasn't been any I've noticed so far.
