ProTint's technicians armor automotive windows with Color Stable window tints that reduce heat and protect car interiors from UV rays and prying eyes. Using expert installation techniques, they cover windows in light or medium tints to ensure drivers aren't blinded by solar glares, or apply limo blackout shades to ensure GPS navigators aren't hassled by star-struck cartographers. ProTint's films never disrupt cell-phone or satellite-radio frequencies, and every tint job is backed by a nationwide lifetime global warranty on materials and labor, as well as a manufacture guarantee that protects against purple discoloration over time.
Manned by ASE-certified technicians, the River City Brakes garage treats vehicles of all makes and models to maintenance and repair services.

Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop—just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
