    This was built from a bunch of old watch parts in my spare time... I'm taking offers for it on ebay if anyone is interested. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273574844684

    Back window package tray

    Likely the reasoning on that one is because of a black rubber piece that sits right at the bottom. Lower the seats down and you'll find a few black plastic rivots that hold the deck in. Remove those, then pull the carpeted deck towards you. This will get that piece off the glass and give you enough room to work. Once done just push it straight back and reinstall clips.

    First non paying non family job

    Any vehicle that has felt, and not plain rubber, needs tape to contain the felt particles that will fly off during install. Edit — this needs to be done before any water EVER hits the vehicle. This is important.

    This is another one of our printed projects we have done in the past few weeks. It's Binary print that relates to the company's services. We printed and installed about 1800 SF of it on their conference rooms and offices.

    19 Lexus ES350 changes

    Lexus really changed it up. First off, you cant trim rubber on rear 1/4s. Front door panels are just 3 screws still, but one isnt under the small piece of carpet material, its right above it on the side of the panel under a plastic trim piece. The door panel gaskets come off the panel now, so no more struggling to get panel back on. I tucked the rears and dropped the fronts.

    Yeah, I could do the joe dirt car from a kit no problem, that might be fun. The watch parts thing is new to me. The way the motorcycle is coming together it wanted to be built, not sure I'd be able to do a whole car though and have it be identifiable. Check this out, I just have a couple of springs to put on the forks and I think it's done.... Edit: It's for sale on Ebay now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/273567260449

    You can forget all those big brand names...they are not sold online and dealers are prohibited from selling the film to non-dealers. So your best bet is to check out Express Films which is quality stuff with good pricing.

    All, I wouldn't worry too much about him sending in the patterns. About a month ago I sent in the 2018 Nissan Titan Windshield with the sensor in it, 2019 Chevy Silverado windshield, and a "repair" pattern for the current Ram 1500 windshield that has never ever fit and is like 2" too long on the sides from the middle to the top corners .....sent that to Terrance at FVD. Called him now twice.. and no update to the patterns database....for any of them. Guy acts like I have caught him in the middle of watching a football game every time I call. Esoterik, it will be forever before it makes it out if at all and probably be past the time it will really serve you. Just sayin.

    Math not possible?

    All of this only gets WORSE when they start wanting to match the color of the rear factory glass. Outside in is one thing, but inside out always makes them complain. (Toyota yellow glass on the front doors is my biggest headache in this department ) juss sayin

    Suntek's new 72" rolls

    Wow, a little sensitive Supreme. No coffee today? It's been a while since I posted on tintdude, and this is exactly why! I was not firing any shots. I have been in this industry for 18+ years and know all senior managers at all of the major players. I'd like to say I get along with all of them, and I am not here to disparage anyone. I never have. I was only posting for installers out there not to expect too much right out of the gate. From us, or ANY manufacturer, because the raw TPU will be very hard to make. Nothing more, nothing less.
