I'm getting the windows tinted on my BA ute and the owners manual says that you should not use metallic tint on the aerial which is stuck on the glass. So which window is it, I'm guessing that its the 2 small windows behind the seats are the one or ones. Please advise what others have done to overcome this problem, and which window is it?

Yeah the aerials on the ba's are built into the windscreen, so you dont have crappy aerials sticking out from everywhere, so it looks sprty etc. Have a look at the rear windscreen and you will see it, (i think it is on sedans, well i have been told it is) around the edges etc.
Someone correct me coz i tend to be wrong all the time, but i am willing to learn.

oldest car I've owned with concealed arial was a 65 Pontiac Parisienne went around the rear window glass, daughters 95 volvo wagon has it in the left rear fixed window , 91 soarer in the rear window and television arial in right fixed window. a very old idea but works extremely well, beats me why all vehicles dont have the same set up
