    If you are working for a dealer in their building and have no skin in the game..as far as expenses go. All you are is a laborer. Same as a car detailer. Your pay will likely be in line with what people in your area make to roll paint onto walls, mow grass, vacuume carpets or wash cars.

    I agree with the opinions...However, this is a loyal frequent return customer..I really didn't know how to handle this one I have to admit.. If this had been a one time customer, then I would have been less likely to have done anything about it, but given the strange circumstance I simply did what I thought necessary. Already had a referral from them that almost covered the windshield cost so eventually I will make up the expense.

    Not tucking film anymore

    Im getting to the point where I rarely tuck. I’ll pull the seal and/or panel if the sides stick out, bottom seal is tight, and if its a removal or the felt is deteriorating. I also do it for ease if I can do it fast. Most all vehicles now fall in these categories, so Im to the point of just never tucking. The few times i do now it just irritates me, especially since I dont do it as much and lose my edge doing it.

    First Cracked Window in over 25 years !!!

    This is a 2019 Tesla Model 3. I was not aggressive with heat did not even squeegee to hard. The film had even been on the car for over 30 min before that crack appeared. As I finished hanging all the film I came back with a microfiber to clean everything up and literally watched it appear from the inside. The contractor I was doing this for just about had a heart attack when I had to call and tell him what had happened ( understandably so ). Lucky for us all the customer was about the coolest guy you could ever meet. Long story short everything worked out ok in the end. The customer is cool contractor is cool and I live to tint another day.

    bruh.....I had the weirdest estimate today. I don't even wanna start to describe all the details because it would turn into a rambling post, but the main takeaway was dude had a straight up life size "female doll" tucked in on his couch with pillow, blanket, sleep mask and all.....definitely thinking some kind of mental illness. Really worried I'm gonna get that job.

    I do a little dealer work, but only for salesman that want quality. And I tell them to pass my number on to their customer. So it keeps it strictly retail. Even used car lots I won’t budge on my price. They keep sending me work. It’s not a lot, but it’s recurring. Screw net 30. Screw having to set aside a $300 job for a $100 job. Screw pushy salesman that don’t even know what they’re selling. I’m lucky in that I don’t need to push dealer work, retail keeps me busy enough.

    This is the reason I wont tint the bg on the 3 anymore. I also wont tint the windshield on any of them. I hear many thinking this company will fold soon. The glass on these is defective by design. Google it and you’ll see.
