    Huge Shoutout and Thanks

    Just wanted to say thanks @OverLord for his huge HUGE help on a 1995 C4 Corvette back hatch yesterday. Burned up a couple pieces of (ceramic) film on my own and became super frustrated. Car has been sitting in my shop for a week while I mentally cooled down and debated how much more film I wanted to trash. David was nice enough to stop by the shop and lend me a hand. When I say lend I mean he drove well over an hour each way to school me on how to tint a 'Vette. I've not been doing this as long as a lot of you but days like yesterday give me hope. This truly is an industry of sharing knowledge and helping your fellow tinter. Hopefully I can put in as many successful years as some of the guys here. Appreciate the help man, more than you can imagine. Tell Ann thanks too for being patient with us. My fiancé gets antsy when its "guy time" because she knows the clock almost seems to stop. Next time we will have to catch up for something less work related, maybe when @jh812 is back in this neck of the woods.

    Is it time to move on?

    Efficiency is one thing, quality is another. You say work more efficiently ?? I say worry more about quality and quit being greedy and have some respect for the industry and not just make money slinging piss poor work. If you won’t accept an application from a quality tinter that can produce work without comebacks only to be looking for how many he can push out, it seems to me you are more worried about the wrong side of things. A quality tinter who produces work that doesn’t come back, will be better than a 14 car a day inexperienced film slapper who only knows how to do one type of car. Probably can’t hand cut a sliding rear window to save his life.

    Contamination issue

    It never hurts to try new tools so you can go right back to what you were using before 😂

    Contamination issue

    Just to show what I'm talking about, this is a '16 Sierra with just under 40k miles on it. It's been detailed and is considered "front line ready" for a dealership. At first glance it looks "clean" (I see a greasy, silicone armour all coated nightmare but that's a conversation for another day) This is what the seals/channels look like... After a quick wipe with a damp microfiber. This makes a world of difference in keeping your install clean. When I first got started I was trained to flush the sides and pass a hard card/bondo card/tri-edge down the seals while flushing and call it good. I fought contamination on the sides for months until I started wiping the seals as my first step when pulling a vehicle in. Hopefully you or someone else will find this helpful.

    I think my feature wall is coming along really well. The youngest stepdaughter still has to outline the letters but it is pretty much done. I had to build(make) all of the " T's " and the " i " but all in all it came out nice.

    2016 Dodge Charger Rear Window mess

    @jh812 is correct. there is “one” thing you can do to fix it you can razor blade all the defroster lines down, then the film will lay in smooth. Defroster won’t work ever again, but it will look great.

    Woohoo Here we go. Landlord said they would work with us the best way they can so we can move. Worst case would be a two month buy out. :thank you Time to start packing up and getting the remodel started. Less than two months and I'll be back in the old location

    I’ve been tinting for about 24 years. I’ve used every sort of light there is(aside from the tubelights I’ve seen on here). I’ve finally found one that does the trick. It’s like a second sun when you turn it on. The base allows you to position it to shine up, down or level with the floor. Angling it up makes cutting around windshield mirrors/electronics much easier.

    'evening all.... Took a last min ride over to Philly today. Was bored... wanted to ride someplace new. A couple buddies were going over, but they ride somewhat on the wild (ie illegal) side, and I just wanted to chill. So I went solo... rode around a bunch of places. Took a few pics. Went down by the river but too many people to try and ride 'off the path' to get good pics. Maybe at like sunrise when no one is out... Anyway... here are a couple that came out decently.

    I do not need diet cherry vanilla chocolate Coke Zero with lemon. Please stop making new flavors of coke. Either put the cocain back in it or leave it alone.
