    No need to even remove that for a sunstrip in the 2015 and newer. You just do a split sunstrip to the left and right of the mirror where the black is and comes out great.
  2. Garage Tinting and the Customer

    I built a small waiting room in my shop was a window that I can choose to keep open or closed so the customer can watch but they’re out of my way. It’s not realistic to send a customer away when they’re just getting a set of doors done compared to doing a whole vehicle
  3. It was many years ago I made this and thought it was worth mentioning again to those tinters looking for a clean portable solution for tinting glass out of frame : I also have a specially designed portable bench that works awesome for such cases. Step 1: Suction cup with customized metal holder. I also welded some nuts to the back of the suction cup so the cup wouldn’t spin when I insert it into the metal holder I made : 2: Place bar in folding Fat Max bench: 3: finished portable product . Able to tint any auto window . Will hold without worry and solution runs down and away without “pooling” and no dust collecting. Best thing I ever came up with 20 yrs ago for tinting glass out of frame
  4. Old car advice?

    I have a similar process as Shady but it like to cut a uniform perimeter around the inside which cuts out a lot of dirt and also allows you to cut the tint in such a way as to not have a light gap. I’m comfortable with doing it as I’ve done hundreds back in the day but don’t do it if your not comfortable cutting straight, thin and even .
  5. I will offer both Suntek and Llumar in automotive with little cost difference between the 2 choices . I just charge the difference of cost on my end and all customers go for it when I tell them how long I’ve been offering Llumar for ( decades) . My other installer use to use Suntek and can’t believe the difference of how much more Suntek used to scratch compared to Llumar. It’s a better choice in the long run between the 2 (in my opinion )just knowing the history and what I’ve personally seen and experienced between the 2 brands as a professional full time installer
  6. 2018 Mazda 6 rear headrests

    Figured it out. You pull out a piece on the one side , then depress the inside with a screwdriver
  7. 2018 Mazda 6 rear headrests

    Does anyone know how these things come out? The panels are easy enough however redesigned, the windows are all identical to the previous models 2014 and up however for the life of me I cannot figure out how the rear headrest come out. The centre head rest is no problem, but the left and right only one of the two buttons release from what I can tell

    The key is not not let your mind race . If your into outer body experiences , dimensional astral projection, etc. It's a great tool. If not, it's a long time to kill in a pod with your thoughts lol
  11. Milwaukee Heat Gun - Battery

    Good review, I would have wrote it identical with my experience with one exception , I would use me $10 butane torch with the same results as this gun for any mobile "touch ups"and slips back in my pocket when done so it didn't even have the value as a mobile touch up for me

  14. Looking for Winter Tips and Tricks

    It depends on what you mean by "colder climates " if your talking near the freezing mark of 32 degrees, I don't consider that cold. If your talking " the moisture from your breath crystallizes when it leaves your body cold, then yes , I do that here in Canada [emoji1063] when it's -30 F Feel free to pm me your number and I can give you some tips to endure endure any temperatures you'll ever come across and have no comebacks.
  15. Bulldozer - best if any way to fix ?

    I've never had a problem when I'm the only one using the tools, they last me for years. I find if you just make sure you keep them wet with every stroke, you'll never have an issue but he forgets to do that and has burned out a bulldozer in three months
