  3. Commercial window scratches

    Thanks for the info. Seems a bit stupid to have a soft and hard side of a window. I did ditch the scraper on some of them and just scrub away.
  4. Who can explain what's up with commercial windows being scratched to hell? I just installed window film on some brand new car dealership windows and some of them are scratched up on the inside, some on the outside, and some are very deep, really nasty scratches. It looks like someone used an old beat up blade to scrape the outsides of them or something Also, some of the windows are perfectly fine on the inside, but others sound like I'm scraping gravel off the floor. They feel very rough, and the blade ends up scratching them as I'm cleaning. I'm using a 6" Triumph scraper with SS blades. Wondering what's with the windows, maybe just cheap shit windows?
  5. Reverse Roll larger windows

    Do you happen to have any pics of your mobile setup you use? The job is done. I ended up just using the floor. It was pretty clean since its a brand new car dealership. Llumar's DR25 is SOOOOOO nice to work with, love that stuff.
  6. Reverse Roll larger windows

    I like that idea. Would you use clean blankets or tarps so the film doesn't pick up contamination?
  7. Reverse Roll larger windows

    Yeah its Llumar DR 25 CDF. I don't have a film handler so I'll have to get a little creative on how to pull and measure out each piece.
  8. How do some of you go about reverse rolling the film for bigger windows? I'm about to get started on some 5ft by 6ft windows and those get to be a bit large for one person. Would you lay down tarps and pull the film out of the box on the floor? Pre cut at the shop or cut on site? It is at a car dealership showroom so I don't really want to be laying a bunch of window film all over the place. Thanks in advance for the tips.
  9. UV Meter

    What is a good UV meter to get? I have a potential large residential job but they claim they paid for windows that have UV protection built in. The company who sold and installed the windows is gone so there is no chance of contacting them. I see there are some cheap meters on Amazon, and all I want is something to use for this one job, so cheap is good. Also something small and easily portable is preferred. I really want to test these windows to see if they truly do block UV. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  10. Bronze tint pics?

    I'll have to call Eastman to see. My Llumar automotive film sample book has 3 different shades of bronze ATR tint, but I think it is an old book. The project car is a championship white Integra Type R (he calls it his unicorn). This gentleman is a Honda tech and found himself a deal on this ITR. He is hoping for window tint that's not the usual smoke look, so I'm trying to find pics of cars done in bronze.
  11. Bronze tint pics?

    Looking for some pics of bronze tint installed on a car for a customer of mine. Ideally, Llumar film on a white car would be the best, but I'll take whatever I can. Searched the forum and Google images, but really haven't found many good pics. Thanks.
  12. Sorry if there is already a thread about this, but I have a bunch of 40" tint tubes and have been trying to come up with ideas on how to use them. They can not be recycled can they? I'd kinda like a door panel rack/holder type of thing mounted to the wall. I don't like setting door panels propped up against the walls. Let's see some creative ideas, thanks.
