    For the most part I try to be a very calm driver... but I also like to have fun. So I was out getting dinner and this guy in front of me was doing 25 in a 40mph. I was right on his butt - which fine... I shouldn't have been. He stops in the middle of the street, gets out, comes back to my car and asks if I can get any closer. I said - Of course I could. What a freak. hahahahahaha

    The place I wanna move to is a gated complex... The gates are open from time to time - for school buses and stuff... I was out on my bike tonight and I like to ride thru it... just to keep that goal in mind. So I follow a car in... I rode around a few times just chilling and stuff.. and I went to leave, but the bike isn't heavy enough to trip the sensor to open the gate to get out. Rode around for another 5-10 min until I saw another car coming in and got out that way. Too funny!!! I was like - wth am I gonna do now!?!?!?! 'evening all......

    The Blues just won the Stanly Cup for the first time in their history. I guess it really is live w/o any delay, cause as the players are celebrating and holding the cup up they are letting the F bombs fly. On normal TV.. NBC. 'evening all..... ETA: They just came back from a commercial and apologized for it and said they turned that mic off. Too funny.

    Was at the DMV this morning... when they called my name and I went up to the window - I said to the woman - I guess I'm the next contestant on the Price is Right! She laughed... when I was done, I said - Man... I didn't even get to play Plinko. Their jobs have to be boring and repetitive... so I try to inject some humor.

    Real world performance on Huper C40

    Never heard of the butter test. Are you sure you got HO tint? Like the shop you went to is reputable?

    Is it time to move on?

    Here's my .... From a business owner's standpoint, and while he might not be the owner, he's in charge of tinting... you can't fault him for wanting more then 1 person. Because who knows what might happen to you. You could get sick... get into a car accident, trip while out jogging... who knows. So if you are the only tinter, and something happens, he would be stuck. As far as the $$$ aspect... you could go to another dealer... or start your own gig. But there's much more to running your own business then just being able to tint. You will be responsible for getting the work, which is the biggest challenge of any business. Certainly it's not impossible - there are plenty of independent shops that are successful. Just don't think all you need to do is put a sign out somewhere and the work will just coming pouring in.

    Skylight exterior install

    I've never installed anything external that large.. but posts I've seen on FB show people using wooden planks to support their weight. If you put them towards the bottom - high enough that you can reach the top... lay the film from top to bottom... then move down and/or remove the plank and do the lower part, that should work. Then if you are going to seal the edges, just use the plank again and repeat. It will keep your weight off the glass without trying to be an acrobat.

    Real world performance on Huper C40

    I'm not doubting you - since I don't have that film... but I have madico 60% ceramic on my truck, specifically the side windows. And I can def. feel a difference with the window up compared to the window down. You really don't feel a difference?

    Got a reply to my CL ad for the truck... "I'm out of town but I'll send you a check" I didn't think that scam would go with buying cars... but I guess why not. I just rolled my eyes and blocked them. I said cash only... they were like ' I know there are scams like this going around but I'm telling you the truth."
