Peeling the liner from film

hi new to the forum and a total newbie to window tint film, basically watched all the videos on you tube, got myself some film, cleaned the windows, sprayed the solution on ,layed the film on cut round the glass no probs then when i went to peel the liner apart from the film a couldnt get it :( tryed with the knife ended up with loads of nail marks in the film, so tryed tape either side got that to work after a few goes but when a pull the tape off it leaves marks in the film ? how do you guys do it ? do u peel it apart abit before it goes near the cars and spray with some solution, ? it looks so simple but how do you realise the clear liner without damaging the film ?

using your teeth is a good way to get started but can ruin teeth after a while but it is the easiest for a new tinter to do.

If you are biting film hard enough to ruin your teeth, you are doing something wrong.

I use the tip of my knife, and have since I started with no problems. It doesn't leave any marks in the film/adhesive, so how is it bad advice?

so you pick at it with the end of your blade and it leaves no marks? if it works for you I didnt mean it to be an insult personally I think its a bad habit if another way works just as easy. theres always more then one way to get it done, dosnt mean there all right.

well when your working on 100,000 dollar cars it just does not look professional to be nawing on the end of the tint with your teeth in my opinion

I agree that why I use my fingers. I just dont get the knife thing but like I said if it works for you... how exactly do you do it? im open to learn something new

edit- thats funny I checked out your cool myspace page. not one 100,000 car on there so how do you peel the liner on <100,000 cars?

lol ,, no kidding!


I think it looks goofy when someone uses there teeth,, but whatever works I guess, right.... we all have our own cool way to seperate the film and release liner.

all you do is take your olfa and turn it so the blade is parallel to the glass, and slide the tip between the liner and the film. You don't "pick" at it, you slide it between the two layers. Like you were trying to cut the film between the liner and film itself, it it was possible.

Thump the corner a few times and peel with my fingernail :thumb

When your ready to peel the liner, spray some solution on one of the windows or a peel board, STICK the cornor you want to peel....Liner comes right off with your finger nail on the STUCK cornor.. Hope that makes sense

I squeegee the tint to the window and then pick a corner and rub my thumb across it while spraying it at the same time. If it's wet, it makes it easier to pull the liner.

I rub my new magic whale pen!s leather gloves (thanks Leo!! ) on the liner side and the liner practically falls of into the trash all by itself. Then I frankie the back glass into place and rub my new magic whale pen!s leather gloves on the film and it locks down reaallly nice.

And if you don't see that I'm just messing with ya you need to pay more attention...

Thats exactly how I do it. Once I get in between, I twist the blade a little so the sharp blade side goes away from the film side and lifts the liner up.
