Which GC plates did you get? Pics of said washer?

Dropped off the car to get the windows tinted with Llumar CTX ceramic tint, 35 front, 30 rear. It came out looking a little darker than I was expecting (I think it's the black interior) but I can feel the difference.

Street plates. There are 3 washers that fit on the cradle studs but don't know where they want you to put them. On top of the indicator plate under the strut tower or on top of the strut tower under the nuts.

The washers should go on top of the strut tower under the nuts. But if you have the factory strut brace and they are using the OE nuts, you don't need the washers because those nuts are flange nuts (and they won't fit because of the extension on the bottom of the nuts).


If you have another strut brace, you might need the washers.

New Battery, new SMG pump and accumulator, and took all my trim pieces to the body shop to get painted.

Dropped off the car to get the windows tinted with Llumar CTX ceramic tint. 70% front, 65% rear. It came out looking a little darker than I was expecting (I think it's the black interior) but I can feel the difference.

Yeah that doesn't look like 70. I also have Llumar and didn't see 70 listed for their CTX line; only the Air line. So I got Llumar Air 80 and love it; looks like there's no tint.

You're right, it's CTX 30 and CTX 35. I was thinking the amount of light it blocked.

Perfect thanks. Forgot about some of our cars not having the strut brace.
