I have used two methods to simulate tinted passenger car windows. The first is to use a thin plastic overlay that I got at a stage lighting co. in my city. they are called jells. A 20x20 sheet sells for about $8.00. Ther are about 30 differnt shades to choose from. The second method is to put a small drop of window tinting color between two pieces of microscope slip cover glasses. The tint material was purchased at an art supply store. Good luck.
