Here are a few pics of the Tint job I just had done. I also put the Shark Fin Antenna on today. There is also 1 pic of the Mazdaspeed decal minus the 6.

The tint is 30% all around.

Very nice. I like the shark fin and the tint job. I really need to get my car in for some tint... I was thinking a little lighter than 30%, that seems really dark! It looks amazing on a white car though.

The debadge of the "6" is sweet too.

Thanks. Yeah, it looks pretty dark in the pics. It is kinda dark, but not that bad :)

I see you from St Paul, so if you want to know who did mine, let me know. It's a guy in White Bear Lake and it's right around $200. He does an awesome job and has been doing it for 20 yrs.

Under the shark-fin, how much room did you have? I want to go get Sirius installed on my car and I want the antanea (sp) routed out that hole and covered up with the fin... that possible you think?

There isn't a ton of room cause the base of the antenna goes under there too. Show me a pic of that Sirius antenna and I'll let you know if I think it will fit. I think another guy (Chicago Kid) said he got his under there though.

I'll see if I can find one... all I know is that it is a little square that is the size of the base stock one. But I don't listen to FM at all, Indiana FM sucks. So I can get rid of that base all together.

If it's the same size as XM or similar, it would fit. Especially if you remove the base of the stock one. But I don't know how easy that would be.

fit my Sirius Ant. under it. It is the round one about 2 " diameter. It sits at the front of the shark fin.

Nice Ryan!. How hard was it to install the sharkfin? Do you have to remove the headliner?

Super easy, all external.

You just unscrew the stock antenna then stick this one on. It's double sided tape. Just clean really good first :)

Took 4 weeks to get the Sharkfin, so you might want to plan ahead on that one :)
