3M has some great products. I looked into getting just my driver cabin done (including windshield) with a UV block (All NY legal according to installer).

The product is their 'crystaline' product. https://goo.gl/QwVGX2

I used ceramic prime xr on my trailer and so far I think it is working pretty good

I tinted the windows in my old Mirada. Fairly easy to do with the correct tools.

I wrote a short article on it.

Here is a write up from when I did mine.

Installed 5% Mirror Tint on my windows. WOW what a difference

I included a link to the product. We just did it while we were camping on a day we didn't have plans. Took us most of an afternoon, working slowly and having fun.

I actually have a guy giving me a quote on our FR3 tomorrow, I'll update with pricing for the 3M Crystaline product once he tells me.

Installer came by today and took a look. For the Crystaline (Top of the line 3M) he gave me a price of around $1300 for the Windshield and two driving cabin windows. $1400 to do the big bedroom window.

He also said there were cheaper products that could get me down around 700 or 900 but that they really didn't compare to the crystaline as far as heat blocking. He told me that he doesn't push any of the lines its up to the customer and wanted me to come in and see the demo they had setup at the shop to show the difference in products. It's a little more expensive than I had thought, and it could be cheaper to just go with a snap-on type cover product but the convenience of the film seems to be winning me over.

Don't come to Michigan with a tinted windshield (other than factory). You'll get a ticket.
