i did have 20% all round but the cops in this town suck balls. now the rear screen is 20% and the side windows are 35%. all the cops have to do now is use their light transmittance thing and if it's too dark. CANARY

no. because you could put on a fake stamp saying it's 35% when it's really 20%. the cop will just test it if they are iffy on what it is

The thing with tints is, what a pissweak excuse to get a canary! I got done for airhorns once upon a time cause they plods put them down as compressed air whistle, (which they aint - it's a pump not a compressor) but still had to front pits and the rest was not good! :evil: :evil: , so now i stick to legal as to get done for tint would really piss me orf! :evil:

would the tester be accurate enough to pick up the difference between 30 and 35 ?

According to RTA rego rules, anything august 1994 onward must only have 35%, but can not be rejected unless less than 30% ( this is for light trasmitter callibration error )
Anything before august 94 can be as low as 20%. How ever as we know, what is a rego pass or rejection, is always very different when it comes to a defect.
