The glass gurus at Tucson Auto Tint repair, replace, and tint windows and windshields. Like the blue-filter version of Casablanca, the Standard Heat Buster tinting uses dyed film ($149+), covering windows in SunTek tint and bouncing 99% of harmful UVA and UVB rays out of the car's interior with ID checks at the doors. The process typically takes about 2.5 hours, so vehicles can be dropped off and picked up on the same day, or technicians can make window-darkening house calls. SUV and station-wagon tinting is available with a $20 upgrade, Corvettes and Volkswagen Beetles are an extra $30, and imaginary hovercrafts are tinted free of charge. The three-year warranty protects against bubbling, peeling, cracking, and being strafed by Canadian fighter pilots.

The skilled framers use museum-approved techniques and computer-aided mat cutting to protect family portraits, precious artwork, and 3-D items, such as a trophy or the family's ancestral garden gnomes.
