    XR plus 70%

    I installed Xpel XR plus 70% on the windshield of my 4runner today. I am VERY impressed with the film. So much so, I wanted to start a post to talk about it. The film is not like any other 70% film that I have ever installed. The film is thick. 2 mil vs the standard 1.5 mil. It shrinks very well, actually just like the XR or XR+ films that I have installed before. The added thickness makes the film install very nice. The film holds its shape better while reverse rolling it onto the glass. Actually it is the nicest piece of film that I have ever reverse roll installed. Clarity. The film is very clear. During the install, I noticed the film was super clear. Usually WS film takes a while to clear up, this film was clear right away. If you haven't had a chance to try the XR Plus 70% contact your local Xpel rep and order some.

    Need new tint !!!!

    No Xpel supplies their own tint and Paint protection film. Give them a call and get set up as a dealer.

  5. I like to use the Green Turbo squeegee. I buy in a 18" length and cut to fit my application needs. I also will use the softer yellow turbo squeegee as well. I also buy it in a 18" length and cut it down. From time to time I will also use a Pink clean if I need a really flexible squeegee.

    Best heat gun

    That is an awesome story. Most tinters think the hotter the better when it comes to heat guns. IMHO that is not true. Yes, the gun needs to be hot but more important is the CFM that the heat gun produces. The "roofing" 220 volt heat guns doesn't get any hotter than a $20 wagner heat gun but they blow A LOT more air. I have seen a guy shrink a Camry back glass template in about 35 seconds with a roofing 220 volt heat gun. This is a great heat gun for the money. 13 CFM https://www.amazon.com/Steinel-Multi-Purpose-Temperature-Adjustable-Industry/dp/B06XDJVNWC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1549852449&sr=8-2&keywords=HL+1620+S This is also a good heat gun. https://www.amazon.com/Steinel-803-UltraHeat-Temperature-Lightweight/dp/B01MDUFTT0/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1549852587&sr=8-4&keywords=steinel+heat+gun

    Best heat gun

    I found my last heat gun, used, on offer up. A pawn shop had it locally. I showed up and it looked like it had very little use. Worked great. He rang it up and gave me a deal at $30. A Milwaukee heat gun for $30. How do you say NO to that. 6 months later it still works great. But I do agree with Midnight. The old school Makita guns are the best. I still have one at home. They usually last me for 5-6 years and I go through 3 cords before the gun fails. This is a new one on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Milwaukee-8975-6-1000-Degree-Fahrenheit-Temperature/dp/B00U0WTYO6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1549753613&sr=8-4&keywords=milwaukee+heat+gun

    Range Rover PPF full hood

    I normally clean the back side of the hood with 99% alcohol or adhesive remover. I install the hood then flush the film that will wrap around to the back side of the hood with my Tac solution (8oz 99% alcohol and the rest distilled water). After that, I blow dry with compressed air. Let air dry while installing more Xpel. Then come back with the heat gun, warm the film that will wrap and wrap away. Never a problem with the Xpel sticking while using this system.
