    hello all,

    I use the covercraft for my Tundra, I bought the daughter one for her 2015 Camry but she has a disability in her arm so it’s kinda heavy and awkward for her!

    Any recommendations on a quality lighter and easy for her brand! I see a lot of cheap ones on Amazon but am skeptical!

    Thanks all, have a great day!

    I had my entire windshield tinted for $100 at a shop here in GA. No more hassle with a sunshade!

    I have the cheap ones like you ordered. They fold up and fit underneath my passenger seat and they work great.

    I've heard the ceramic tint is awesome and they have clear for the windshield and it helps greatly. I'm looking into doing it eventually in my truck

    I have 60% which is a 40% VLT (visible light transmission). Considering the overall size the Tundra windshield I wanted to go darker but that’s the darkest the guy would apply to a windshield and needless to say since it is illegal in GA he does not give receipts. My wife’s Camaro, having a smaller windshield, looks much darker than mine. But for $100 I’m happy

    Here’s the difference in Camaro and Tundra windshields with same tint.

    I just picked up a cheap accordion folding one at Walmart for like 4 bucks. I was surprised with how well it worked.
