  1. This technique will require 2 people. I would have a 1/2 gallon of super super hot water on standby. I would think you would tack the back of the hood 5-6 inches, from Left to right. Pour the super hot water all over the hood really quick. One person needs to pull down the middle towards the Lexus emblem in the front. squeegee it from the back of the hood towards the front while the film is stretched over the front edge of the hood. Then you can work on the left and right sides of the hood. Good luck.
  2. $35 a month!

    Great for PPF and tint slip solutions. Coffee to keep you going through out the day. Great deal !!
  3. cb15u (red tip) with a Clean Cut Blades 45 degree blade. Order a 60 degree too. Let me know how it works.
  4. Bulldozer fix when the blade falls off

    I just buy another one. Tint tools are cheep.
  5. Nick might know a thing or two about squeegees and hard cards. I think the person starting this thread is looking for a hard card while he is shrinking film. I would recommend the Gold 3M PA-1 or the gold colored Teflon hard card.
  6. Best tint software??!!

    have you tried the Prime XR from Xpel? GREAT film, easy to shrink and the best hard coat ive ever seen.
  7. Best tint software??!!

    Xpel DAP. Hands down the best tint patterns in the business.
  8. Check out this video about flow on.

    That is awesome. I have never seen that video before. Thanks for posting
  9. PPF windshield

    you can install Graffiti film on the outside of your windshield. It shrinks really slow. The hard coat will scratch over time from the wipers.
  10. Cuts on glass

    That's too bad that happened to your new car. People should learn from the damage on your car. DO NOT CUT ON A CAR. Use a sharpie and draw on the tint and cut it on the Peel board. Back in the day, glass was not so soft and we could cut on the car. Times and glass has changed. Sharpies are cheap and windows are expensive.
  11. I'm bummed plotter broke

    I suggest a graphtec cutter for tint over a rolland. The reason is due to the blade holder design. The rolland blade holder will "clog up" with hard coat dust faster much faster than the graphtec blade holder. This is just due to the differences in blade holder design. Another cutter to look for is a suma cutter. Great quality and they will keep the media running straight for a very long time. 25 degree Clean Cut blades (for window tint cutting) are awesome as well and can be had for just about any brand of cutter.
  12. Try the xpel gel for door cups. Works great.
  13. I'm bummed plotter broke

    Do you cut tint and or PPF ?
  14. Tint goes on the outside??

    I had 2 signs in my old shop first sign said YES, IT DOES BOTHER ME IF YOU HANG OUT WHILE I TINT YOUR CAR. second sign, NO, THE TINT DOES NOT GO ON THE OUTSIDE.
  15. Seventh generation dishsoap ???

    Baby wash, tint slime or film on for me. I looked at the ingredients for the seventh generation dish soap. It contains calcium chloride, ie road de-icer. Good luck with long time use of that soap. Calcium chloride is an inorganic compound, a salt with the chemical formula CaCl2. It is a colorless crystalline solid at room temperature, highly soluble in water. Calcium chloride is commonly encountered as a hydrated solid with generic formula CaCl2(H2O)x, where x = 0, 1, 2, 4, and 6. These compounds are mainly used for de-icing and dust control. Because the anhydrous salt is hygroscopic, it is used as a desiccant.
