I called Huper and there is no place in N.O. Closest is Bossier City and i'm not driving all the way there. I'm sure you'll get arguments over the best tint but my understanding is that a number of reputable tint providers make ceramic tint now. Formula 1 has a good rep and that's the place in Alexandria. The place in Baton Rouge with the best reputation is TNT (Tint n Trim) and they do a ceramic tint by SolarGuard and say they love their products. TNT does all BMW and Merc-Benz work in Baton Rouge. Cost around $350-400. When i spoke to the owner he sounded very proud of his work quality. My guess is all these are good quality given the advances in tint quality. As for the clear shield, i no nothing about the brands so are you saying VentureShield is considered high quality? How much should i pay for a full front end job?
