Re: The Dalai Lama Drives a WK2
Any armoring job worth anything will have the opaque armoring overlap the transparent armor. As such, there will be an inside border around the glass to account for the overlap. These vehicles don't show any such border. The USSS protects foreign dignitaries and wouldn't bother with a worthless Level II or below.
One key factor for armored vehicles is to blend in with the traffic, hence great pains are made to make the vehicle look stock. Upgraded springs, borders around the glass, tires/wheels, ride height....and sometimes glass color are signs of armoring.
