Removing tint from a rear defroster element is not an easy job. Based on their workmanship in applying the tint, I would have zero faith in them not damaging the defroster.

Dealer Mark-Up Gone Wild

Spotted this Z/28 at my local dealer. Over 65% dealer mark-up! Sorry, I can't figure out how to rotate the pic.

I'm not saying this car had a fatality, but would anyone else be hesitant to purchase parts from a car that had one? I'd be a little creeped out.

I noticed the local LEOs follow me a lot more often when driving the Camaro compared to my other vehicles -- as if they're waiting for me to do something illegal. I was never pulled over, though.
