    Windshield strip that follows the curve?

    I tape measure and mark with a pen all across the windshield, compensating for curves of the glass to keep it from dipping on the sides.. Then I run a tape line across the marks and throw the tint on. Just cut along the edge of the tape line. Steady hand required.

    Window Film Conference & Tint-Off

    I was watching some vids of previous years tint offs and noticed quite a few were disqualified. How does that happen? Never been into the competitive tinting scene so I have no idea of the rules and whatnot.

    removing back glass nightmare

    409, garbage bag and a steamer. Spray the film with 409 liberally, bag it and park it under the sun. This works on its own more often than not. If the film is very brittle and keeps breaking, pull out the steamer and slowly help it along with the additional heat. Sometimes you only have to bag it for 15 minutes, sometimes an hour. If the film pulls off but leaves a ton of glue, respray and bag it again until the adhesive turns to snot, then 0000 steel wool it. If its overcast/winter, you will need a few heat lamps on stands to warm the entire back glass up, just be careful how close you put the lamps for obvious reasons.
