    Wow... these pics really make me want an Aurora when my lease is up. Think I might still be able to find one?

    Depends when your lease is up. To be honest, one of the reasons I purchased an Aurora was the fact that they were so rare.

    I'm not sure if I remember right, but I think my local Chevy Dealer back in Clarkston, Mi had Trail Blazers and S-10s with clear glass all the way around. It looked sooo plain. I'm not sure why they only sold those. This was around 2001-02

    Great pics! It's amazing how similar the Buicks of today are so similar in appearance to this car. Beautiful ride man.

    Hey I like the upsidedown logo, her nickname is Velma, (with a V) afterall. No one would know the difference except true Olds fans anyway.

    I did on my Silverado, about the same time TaHoe did the Aurora and it looks good, but I'm getting worried now because the guy said give it 3 days before rolling down the windows. Well that was Saturday, it's now Wednesday (4 days) and there's still bubbles all over and it looks crappy. He's done 2 of my other cars, 3 of my buddie's and they were great. This one was the first one I had him do in the winter though. It's been warm the last few days, but we didn't get any sun until today. Hopefully today they work themselves out. I know he'll redo them for me, but it's a bit of a hassle.

    TaHoe, the 'A' looks all weird, man. Otherwise, it looks good. I loved the tint on my Saturn though. 5% in the rear and 20% all of the rest of the way around. A Detroit cop yelled at me for it once (and all the other retarded stuff I happened to do at that moment) but no tickets

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    Very nice pics, the tint makes the car look really slick! The upsidedown "A" emblem was the first thing I noticed on it. So your car is named Velma? Are we a Scoobie Doo fan?

    Indeed I am. I owned a GMC Safari van, whos nickname was "Mystery Machine", of course I am a Scoobie Doo fan!

    After much debate, I will be making the logo NORMAL...not too sure about how to go about it, any suggestions?

    Well, I got it done when it was about 17 degrees, it's starting to look better and it has almost been a week now. The guy that installed them told me to wait 7 Days. Give it some time, then go back to the guy.

    Ya, I'll give it some time. Like I said, I've seen his work on 5 other cars, so I know he's good. All of the others were done in warmer temps though. I think the same thing happened to my friend's Sierra that he did and it eventually worked itself out after a week or so, if I remember correctly. I thought you got it done last weekend, or is that just when I first read the other thread Maybe that's it.

    It was either Wednesday or Thursday, I think Thursday. I had a wake to go to that day, that's why I remember. Unfortunate day for my GF, she lost her Grandmother and her Dog within two days of eachother...So it will be a week tomorrow. But I am still nervous about lowering the window at all.
