Also, does anyone sell some nice celica mats. somethin that might say Celica on them or toyota or something sweet like that?

When tinting, make sure you go slow and be precise. Ebay, may be your best bet for some nice floor mats.

i paid to have the tinting done... too much of a pain in the ass to do it yourself IMO

The side windows aren't too bad, but the back window will be a P.I.T.A.

As for floor mats, I picked up some very plush black ones from Checker for $30. Very nice, pretty darn cheap.

Yea.. I kinda want floor mats that say Celica .. or Toyota.. somethin like that..

As for the window tinting. I failed.. I noticed the tint wasn't dark enough, nor was it silver enough.. I got silver tint btw.. Sterling Silver.. just wasn't right so I ended up ripping it off.. So I failed.. but it wasn't that big of a deal, wasn't happy with it anyway. I will search the nut probably to find a better tint. I may inquire to the cost of getting it professionally done.. The shit I was using was a 50% tint.. I'm looking for more of a 65 or 70%.. and more of a silver color to match the paint..

Just so you know, smaller numbers on tint let less light through. It sounds like you're under the idea that the larger the number, the less light through.

I said 50% because on the package it says it lets 50% light through.. so it's a 50% tint.. I am aware of the smaller number deal.. like 5% is limo tint.. nothing gets in... and when i said 65-70% i ment how much light is blocked.
