    If it means anything, I understood your poll. And I am one of the ones who had their order updated from Autographed to Non-Auto. I'd rather save the extra cash, and get it signed in person on a cooler looking window. It'll make the autograph that much more meaningful too. I don't anticipate his autograph being super difficult to obtain after his retirement. He has always been one to always sign for fans.

      I think what had happened is that when these were sent out for the drivers to sign during the initial uncertainty, that the blank ones is what HMS approved. Then after they had been signed, HMS approved the black bordered ones. At least that was what I thought I had heard. So going forward after this season, I would think the black bordered ones will be done, but the windshields for this year, which apparently were all done and signed early and sent to the factories to be installed in cars this year, there's nothing that can be done. Aside from paying drivers to sign again, send the windshields to China, delay production for months, that's it. So while I agree these don't look good at all, there's not much within reason they can be expected to do at this point.
      thank you for your clarification..I can understand your point about Lionel's hands being tied..I read several posts about this and thought a poll might allow the issue to be better gauged without everyone making basically the same comment repeatedly..I do think that it would be wonderful if they would waive the cancellation fee for those that choose to cancel due to this issue..personally $30 won't make me keep a car that I don't want in my display but the gesture would be appreciated I'm sure..based on the autos selling out I doubt that many people cancel anyway so this will basically become a non issue..

          Ah-Ha moment indeed. Man the layers of approval strike again LOL

            Well it sounds like we are stuck now :-( When I got my Chase Elliott Hooters I was like what on earth is this!

              I think they did post in the forum a while back in the ask thread that the HMS cars would be like this, but yeah, I agree, I think it should have been maybe advertised in the descriptions at pre order that way everyone knows. I think the renders all had the black at the point preorders started, which led to more confusion. I am sure it was unintentional on their part, but I understand why folks are upset. I don't like it either. If if wasn't for the black roof on these, I would probably cancel too, but I think it won't look as bad with the black roof. You could try calling the call center. Maybe they'd waive the cancellation fees. Plus, they won't have any trouble selling what people cancel I don't think.

Folks THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE MONSTER BANNER, this is about the black paint missing around the entire windsheild. This makes it look very cheap and unfinished. I do not see why the lack of the banner caused the entire windsheild to not have the black trim put around it at all. This also is on Chase Elliott cars so look out.

                  I would have ordered every finish in auto if they had the borders. Still had my 3Q discount to use too. I just ordered the standard non-auto elite and used my survey code $10 off coupon and called it good. I still have 3 other auto'd elites on order and I will determine whether or not I keep them once they arrive. Funny how all those Last Ride "made to order" cars sold out in 2 days though. Hopefully they blew through all those signed blanks and they are all gone, and also hopefully they make a raced Homestead version with some new, properly bordered autographed windows.

                        I think they said all the 1/64s are gonna be like that from now on. Not sure if that included the boxed releases or just authentics.
