    Possible Fraud?

    The fact that you didn’t get paperwork for it was done for cash isn’t necessarily suspicious . I’m a reputable Llumar dealer and I won’t give paperwork for a windshield tint as it’s legalities are questionable. I have only ever used AIR80 in a windshield because despite its questionable legalities, I’m all for helping customers with their skin issues with a tint that in no way is dangerous for visibility. With that being said, there should be no reason why the shop can not show you the tint with lot number in a “bonified” box for your piece of mind . If they cannot , I would go right to head office and confirm that they at least buy that particular product. If they do, the odds are you are ok. Also as a last resort , if you go to another Llumar tint shop who knows the film lines well, they can look at the job and should be able to tell you just by looking at it with a trained “Llumar eye” .

    I kept the scraper away from it all together and used a soft white scrubbie and cleaner just to loosen any contaminates and went right over the coating . No warranty due to stupidity of the manufacturer . Came out fine and customer was happy I didn’t take a blade to his window . Not debating if I should have or not ... just the customer and My mutual agreement in how I was going to proceed if he wanted it tinted at my shop or not . I wasn’t going to mess with that coating and potentially pay for new glass it ruin it . Too many cars lined up that doesn’t have “issues” to bother with the risk.

    I've never seen film shrunk so fast!

    It only takes me 2-3 min with dual heat guns for most bg’s and a more stable shrink

    Been through it , best thing I ever did was not work solo anymore. Now I can focus on sales , organization and tint as little or as much as I want now

    The Reach

    I don’t use it much but I wouldn’t say it’s useless . It works best if reversed for deep reach areas on certain cars. It’s not an everyday use tool
  8. I have 35% on 2 front doors , AIR80 on full windshield and 5% on rear windows. I’d like to have darker on my 2 front doors but it’s hard to promote legal tint when I myself haven’t set a good example for our province laws so it is what it is lol.
  9. Hi Toronto Tint . Try Kijiji, you have to keep an eye out for s good deal but they do happen in there. I’m about 2 hrs from you (assuming your in Toronto by your handle name) . I just picked up a spare plotter (Vinyl Express Q100 42” ) for $1100 Canadian and runs like a charm. I’d take a good used plotter over a new cheap one any day . Good luck in finding one , good luck with the part time business [emoji4][emoji106]

    I also just received a sample of it . Just waiting for the right vehicle to install it on before commenting on it
  11. 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

    Many different ways for different styles of tinting. My preferred way is to pop the top row of plugs and one screw where the handle is. Unfortunately they replaced one of the plugs with a one-way plug but that’s OK, you won’t break it and you can still get the seal in an out without popping that plug. It’s the same plug that’s in a cx5 . Really dumb design unfortunately

    The sedan patterns are good, the hatch didn’t scan right. Might be a few days off that one to get fixed they said

    They are now in the database, I will try them out after the next few days and if there’s any tweaking or peeking,ill make sure it happens [emoji4]

    The bottom sweeps pull out and reinstall without issue , bottom load and it’s easy . I personally pop 3 of the 4 top panel plugs to make it a bit easier but unfortunately, the plug on the most outer edge is the same as the cx5 which will most likely break if you try to pop it so leave it in tact.
