I was just reading the vehicle portfolio. Its like a breakdown of everything in the vehicle. It can be seen here:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17032

Anyway there is something in there that peaked my interest: (page 12)
Quote:
WINDOW INDEXING
To provide a tight seal, the window will automatically open slightly when the door is
opened and then automatically close when the door is closed.
If battery power is disconnected, follow the Owner Manual procedure for initializing the indexing feature.
Now if what is being said above is true then that would mean that before you go and get your window tinted all you need to do is disconnect the battery for like 5 mins and then the index feature wont work until you reinitialize it through whatever steps its says in the manual.

Tell me that isn't the best news today...

I just had my windows tinted today at a reputable shop and they know about the window indexing and it wasn't a problem. I didn't see how they did it but the tint looks great.

I posted some pictures in the media gallery.

Nice pics Catdaddy. What percentage is that? Also, are the small side windows already tinted from the factory or did you have to get them done as well. Nice car.

There is no reason to tint the front. It will only cause visual problems as well as legal if you were pulled over. Im doing 5% on back and sides or 5% in back and 15% on the sides. It was said before that doing 5% on the back will make the rest a lil darker and this is true. Doing 5 on back and sides makes it darker from the front as well but is a pain to back up at night. My buddy has to role down his window sometimes to back up because its so dark at night.

Go to the eye Doctor and get a letter from him you get migran headaches. That works for me.

I have been tinting windows for about 15 years, the mustang has had windows that do the same thing as the camaro and the corvette. The way to get around this little problem is very easy. You don't have to unhook the battery, all you have to do is take a flat head screwdriver and open the door and lock the mechanism in the door which will trick the car into thinking the door is shut and it will roll the window all the way up. When you are done tinting the window all you have to do is really heat up the bottom of the film with a heat gun and then just open the door by the outside handle and the inside mechanism will open and you can just shut the door. No need for all that work with the battery.
