I thought I made it clear. They didn't use any kind of window tint at all. They just replaced the window glass with opaque aluminum panels. It would have been more cosmetically pleasing to use glass with commercially available automobile window tinting film.

The cockpit has been stripped and the seat removed. Not sure why. Photos of the control panels were declassified years ago along with detailed drawings from the flight manual.

The engines and exhaust ducts were also removed, along with the ceramic tiles on the trailing edge of the exhaust hot deck.
