    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 😂

    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.

    I’ll go out on a limb and say it was more likely a shotty job from the get go and your now just noticing a bad line up job of the tinter. If the other side even remotely resembles a similar gap. You’ve got your answer as it’s highly unlikely both windows started to shift at the exact time
