Donít go green tint.
I donít know anything about Pilkington glass.
Mine was different brand. And they would grind the edging corners too much. Think wind noise and leaks.
I called them and they sent me glass without corners ground too much for free.
I like tinting on glass but not GREEN for your paint color.

I went with Auto City gray internal tint glass and they did a nice job. Lead times are a bit longer than normal, so plan ahead if they don't have it on the shelf.

Thumbs up Pilkington Thumbs UP

I have used Pilkington on two builds. Great guys to work with, excellent quality glass, finished nicely on all edges. They will even work with you and put all the original OE logos for LOF and the other stuff if your doing a full blown restoration. I have been super happy with all my interactions with them.

I went with Pilkington and am very happy with it. More importantly the glass installer was very happy with it. I'm car buddies one of the auto glass place in town. He sold it me at cost and charged me a couple hundred to install. Gray tint.
