Like Mark said, this place must have pulled a tint meter. They did the inspection in there big repair garage and I didn't see whether they surely did or not.

It's looking like I might have to rip it off. Mostly because this shop still did the full inspection and logged it all in the system. Might look shady if one shop failed me for tint and then a day or so later, another shop passed me... although it's really no different than if I rip my tint off today, get it inspected, then have tint reinstalled.
The system sucks.

I understand that, and I may end up doing that. Just sucks to rip off my tint and pay $200+ to have it redone. (Obviously I'd have it redone a legal 35%)
