    What would you do ?

    I feel for you . I think most of us have been through that kind stuff. The good news is that you feel that its bad. If you dont like it then just find somewhere different. Knowing that your being forced to lie has to make your days long. Listen to me life is to short to be unhappy you need to do what is right .Dont ever let someone make you less then what you are . you are great and keep that in your heart . when you leave that guy youll see much more joy. I know for a fact that more work will come that you can take pride in.

    This guy asked some of the most annoying things. Where does the water go after you put it on? Could you keep the ignition off..it’ll kill the battery. Oh and at the end when i was done, That took a while, did you have trouble? Last one i looked at him like i wanted to punch him and he said its been a while since he got tint. Probably just get a shop next year before i beat someone!

    Seen plenty of Rayno failure photos including from a dealer in GA which is hot but far from the harshest around. Could be first generation stuff which has been improved or could be 1-2 particular lines. Either way too many red flags for me, but from what I hear Solar Free is having their fair share of failures. I would skip all of these newer cheap companies and go with someone that has a proven track record. SolarFX, Express, Global which are all priced right.

But seriously, would you say that to your mechanic or doctor?

    Quick story need advice

    @D34 you are a fickle person and you need to find your balls, you are overthinking the crap out of everything. I would hate to have you work for me. You need to not fear what you can't do and focus on what you can do and expand on it. You will never be anything with that wishy washy "i don't know what to do" bs. Find your sack, do your work, don't make so many excuses not to work and you might actually make some cash. That dude gave you a great opportunity and you quit after a week. You had a great opportunity to grow on someone else's dime. You need to be more sure of yourself and drop this lingering doubt bs that runs through every sentence of your post. My advice is, get into work, tint every car thrown at you, it may take you a long stretch to do it, you may get pissed and have to redo it, but you'll be no different than any other tinter who messes up and has to figure it out and learn something new. Are you waiting to tint every single car a dozen times before you feel good about yourself? But hey the choice is yours, McDonalds is hiring until you can figure out that you have to actually make an attempt at something to succeed. Go back to that job, take on every car and take the time to do it right and you'll never regret me calling you out on your wishy washy attitude. Good luck, i truly hope you succeed.

    Hi Ryker, Not sure if the Klingon range is available for Earth currently? Communication with the supplier can be tricky, especially when you don't have a gravitational energy photon receiver. The last time I ordered from the distributor the delivery crew was vaporized by an exploding dwarf star whilst in hyperspace. Their no refunds policy left me 3 standard di-luminum crystals out of pocket, and with no Klingon... Logistics can be an issue. The nearest stockist is 2-3 light years away. If you want it delivered Express via a tear in space time... That's going to cost you. Also, I picked up a interstellar communication from a tint shop in Gamma Zone section 12-B. Apparently Klingon are setting up exclusive territories. And our solar system has been allocated to Regon 6J. And we know those guys are just going to keep all of the Klingon for themselves... Or double the price. There are other good local Milky Way based options, but nothing beats Klingon... The stuff shrinks like butter! Cheers

    "but most of the time I either don't want to mess with the door panels too much or I tell myself to just do the way I know in order to save time." Get this mentality out of your head. You want to be really good at tint, learn other techniques. I tucked film for ten years before learning to bottom load. Now I'll pull a panel or sweep in a heartbeat. Guess what once you get comfortable with it you'll laugh at how fast you think you use to be. I will never understand why tinters get so caught up in one method and that's it. Cars are different so learn to be versatile. After learning I've taught two others this method one was a 20 year veteran the other 5 year, they both before refused to pull anything. Fast forward a year they both have either equal or faster times, and cleaner work. So it's on you, if you want to learn all techniques and be comfortable with tinting start practicing. Or just stay where you're at.

    Dealer tint comes as free add on???

    Spot on The other problem that has been created, in my opinion, is the "lifetime warranty" terminology. This should have been smashed years ago I hate that phrase and do my absolute best not to use. If someone (a customer) asks if I have a "lifetime warranty" , I tell them that my film will last 8-10 years and I stand behind my work and products.

    Only thing sad about this is the idiots that are selling our trade for less than $300. If your under that price for a car you should find a different career IMO. $900 is a bit excessive but it just shows that if you SELL something you can get more!

    Dealer tint comes as free add on???

    Guys. This is standard practice. Everything y'all are talking about is S.O.P. at every dealership in the nation. This is how it works and how they make money. People want everything package together in one big package with one price on all of it. This is how the dealers accomplish this and still make money. It's no big deal. Just keep doing cars for them and make sure you are making money. Let them do what they want with it after you are done. If they up the price and get it, fine. You aren't going to be able to "get over on them" because they double your price after they get the car from you. edit = Also, make sure you get paid from the dealership. This is usually the biggest issue. Get a P.O. # and keep on them for a check.

    Just spent 5 minuets explaining to this douchebag on why he can’t drive his damn Hyundai Kona in my bay himself, talking about he’s the only person authorized to drive the car. It’s a freaking Hyundai asshole, I drive it in or you don’t get it tinted

    Highplains ... in regard to your mentioning in the last-1-2-post thread; that 4runner reflective coated glass is deposited on the surface. The brake light area may have been left clear so as not to have issue with NHTSA regulations of brake light brightness. I remember doing a Ford years ago with similar glass. It was old at the time and had a decal inside on the reflective coated glass surface. When I removed the sticker the glass was clear in that spot. Apparently the adhesive destroyed the coated over the years it was applied to the glass.

    Stinky dirty cars!

    Moms cars have a ton of food all around, one car the floor was covered with massive amounts of Fruit Loops, Cheerios, GoldFish and Q-tips (odd amount of Q-tips, i didn't ask). If she got lost in a storm she could survive for a month on the cereal everywhere and french fries between her seat.

    Which film for windshield

    Solargard Ultra Performance Plus 80? That is a nano-Ceramic window film...it is not a Carbon and has no metal in it. It is very similar to Llumar AIR 80. Also no such thing as "polarized" window tint...it is vidrios polarizados in Spanish.
