What factory tint is there on new Mustangs the top of windshield?

I though only vans, SUV's get any factory tint and those are only on rear seat sides and back.

Are you tinting it yourself or taking it to a tint shop?

If you are taking it to a tint shop they will take care of making sure it is legal. They have all the info on what tint to put on what cars.

If you have factory tint it should have that info in the bottom corner of your window where it says ford and it will have a % there.

(I have owned a few non Mustang cars over the years as well, but always try to have a Mustang with it or come quickly back to a Mustang!)

If your car has tint, they will peel it off and apply the new tint.
If you are talking about the glass haveing a slight tint that built into the glass, no they dont take that into account. If you buy 35% you will end up with ~30% on a handheld meter. (like what the police use.)

Actually, reputable tint shops do measure the glass prior to applying tint and after applying tint to ensure compliance with local laws. I even got a certificate from the shop.

That was exactly my experience. I had 40% installed on my '14 GT and ended up with a 32% reading on the Nevada Highway Patrol tint meter.
