the thing that stands out to me, is the fact she could even make a statement.... There have been less violent wrecks with 5 dead people inside.

limousine got T-boned this week in jersey, 4 women died, and it didn't look that violent

edit:
oops, New York, not New Jersey

I've seen cars get their tops cut off at the point where the windows start by going under HGVs. Driver and passenger duck and are still alive.

came outta Tulsa one day and saw a truck rear-ended a sedan, the front bumper of the truck sitting about where the sedan's windshield wipers were.
3 fatalities, attributed to sun glare.

Good news - I cocked up putting that lexen film on a couple of windows. It peels right off with no problem! Yay! Now I can redo it - properly.

Guys, apologies to resurrect somewhat of an older thread, but as i understand it, lower percentage numbers for the tint = darker tones? is that correct?

So, will a 5% be "almost blackout" vs a 35% or higher being almost transparent?
What about heat shielding? would any tint do?

i was looking at this > Robot Check but since i want a very dark tint all around the bus (minus windshield, of course...), i should go with a 20% or lower.
Correct?

You are correct in your assumption. The lower the number the less light is able to pass the film... Just be sure to check into your state/county/city's laws about window tint. Its an easy ticket for them to write you so make sure you CYA.
