    Solar FX buyer beware.

    That's how I see it. By and large, people here have positive things to say. There's always going to be that one person. And I do have to stay neutral, especially if they are a sponsor here, it wouldn't be ethical of me to delete bad reviews.

    Solar FX buyer beware.

    Short story, there was not a film failure. IRFX Series Nano-Ceramic Film was installed last week 10/7/2019. He was not happy with the installation. 5% all around the vehicle on a 2005 Scion XB. Said it was a poor install. Bubbles in the film, 1 week later. Says that this is a SolarFX Warranty issue. Wants us to refund him. Told him this is not a manufacturers defect to go back to dealer.

    What should I do? I can't only allow positive statements about a film.

    Flat glass question.

    Depends on the type of door, but generally speaking it is not worth it to pull those unless you are doing safety/security film. Some of the older style can be removed rather easy by pulling the small gasket around the perimeter and the stops will basically fall out. There are some that are much more difficult to remove, requiring you to beat on them with a mallet or flatbar just right to pop the stops loose. Either way most all of them require using a mallet to pound the stops back in place. Also have to deal with the glass being completely loose and wanting to fall inward. I use a suction cup on the outside with a board that goes through the handle and too the frame. Think in most cases it really doesn't make sense to pull them, but if it's the floppy gaskets that are the problem try bumping with a hard card tucking them back into the frame.

    The thing is,,, he's allowed to have an opinion, and voice it. Even if it's not to our liking.

    Blue Label Olfa Blades are back!!

    Okay guys, I just got off the phone with 1010Tools (Dragon Distributing) and somehow they have acquired a stock of the Blue Label Olfa blades that we all love so much. I specifically remember a conversation on here about how the Olfa blades had changed and were dulling quicker, and someone mention that the older ones with the blue label were the good ones. Well 1010Tools has them. So give them a call and get you some before they disappear again. You're Welcome.

    Bad tint job?

    If the Tinter did it, it would be more than 1 window.

    Llumar films are always lighter out of the box than the shade listed. For example, 35 out of the box will be closer to 39 for Llumar films. We also carry 3M which tends to hit dead on the shade listed on the box. 3M CS 20 can easily hit 13 once applied on the glass...Crystalline roughly the same. So we always have to take that into consideration when selling the films. 35% is our legal option (GA can hit as low as 29 to be legal), but I have seen 3M CS 35 hit as low as 28 on certain vehicles.

    Not the most hated but I did not enjoy this job back in the 80's, despite its notoriety. No wheels.

    Heat lamp versus the sun - Same IR?

    Infrared bulbs emit 95% infrared energy whereby the sun only emits 48.xx %. Same bulb, visible light 5% and the sun 48.xx% Both visible and infrared energy will convert to heat once absorbed by any surface, infrared is simply 'felt' sooner because it penetrates deeper into the skin causing tissue moisture near nerve receptors to heat up. Water is the best absorber of infrared. The display you speak of is not misleading since both films mentioned work best in the infrared. Misleading would be to compare one of the two films mentioned to a dye-metal or straight dyed film. Edit: If you want to compare differing film structure performance, a Halogen bulb is the closest to resembling the sun's energy; publicly available.

    Work light

    Milwaukee Tool is making various 12V and 18V LED work lights that are so bright they hurt your eyes to look at without film in between. Some with magnetic bases, and all with fully rechargable batteries, the same as their tools.
