  1. Man, what a day...

    Always tell them a high price and that’s only the starting point pending your inspection. Then it can go up. When doing removals ALWAYS think of a number that’ll make you smile. 😃 . For me if during inspection I find it’s delaminated then I’ll be honest it’ll be cheaper if you replace the glass then to pay me to take it off. Lol I actually had a customer that went with that advice and went to pick and pull and bought the entire rear hatch with glass for $50 . His lucky day it was even the same paint color as his car. To prevent this I’ll usually ask for the customer to text me pics.
  2. Tesla Model X door panel remova

    ☝️ This technique is called double shrinking.
  3. Tesla Model X door panel remova

    Double shrink all roll ups. Maybe you’re not being aggressive enough on you upside down u anchor. I’ll use a blue card dry and it’ll give me enough grip to aggressively tack a u anchor.
  4. graphtech plotter pressure

    My graphtech fc8600 the pressure/ force is set digitally as well as the speed. You need to set the conditions for different materials. I LOVE this feature you can cut tint and next cut Vinly by just changing your preset conditions.
  5. Tesla 3 Windshield Film Computer Problems

    Thanks bro. I’ll definitely pass on these from now on.

    The wire can be bought at almost any hardware store for usually 15 cents a foot. I’m sure you can find better deals online buying the whole spool.

    There’s a tip from a very long time ago that I still use today. Get some 14 gauge wire black wire and stuff it into the seal with a bone. This will open it up and leave a small enough gap to slide the film in. Leave the wire in there when you’re done. The wire acts to slightly separate the seal from the glass and lock in any debris behind it.
  8. Water separation

    No way! That’s about the only thing I’ve never tried. I’ll definitely have to try that the next time I get one of those windows. I’m just worried about getting that stuff on the door panels. Of course I’ll have it covered up but have you gotten any on a panel?
  9. Light

    Bottom left light is great for hand cutting the back glass. It has three modes. First is a flashlight that can help see the bottom edge when cutting darker films. The other two modes is medium and high of 400+ lumens. The only thing I don’t like is I wishe they had made it micro usb rechargeable. It has its own usb plug. $80 bucks on the truck. The magnetic base is really useful and you can put the wand in any position.
  10. Rear view mirror wiring

    That’s also what I do with those wires. Ones that’s too short I use masking tape to the headliner
  11. Scrubby pad contamination??

    I only use scrubby pads on the backglass and only for a few cars. I try to save them for use on removal. Roll ups I use a single edge razor and my olfa for the sides to clean. We basically have no choice but to use a white scrub pad on the back glass. Once they get old they’ll leave particles.

    I’ve used fvd and pcs. The only thing I liked about pcs was the line would turn red and not let you cut a pattern that was bigger then your cutting area. Fvd has that disadvantage but has many more positives. One of my favorite features is you can change a pattern by enlarging it and delete any features of the pattern you don’t like. Say you got a roll up that has big rounded corner and there would be a gap. FVD lets you tweak the pattern in the software by pulling on it at certain points. One of my favorite features is cutting from multiple cars on the same cutting table. Say you have extra space on the cutting table you can cut quarters for the next car.
  13. 2018 Audi Q5 SQ5 front door sweeps

    The Q5 and SQ5 don’t need felt. I can tint them without removing the door panels but I’ll get small side creases at the sides where the break line is at. Not really noticeable when heated out but with the few extra min it takes to remove the panel I can do an even cleaner install faster and easier. With the panel removed I just do a full peel and bomb drop it. Then I’ll move to the next door and come back at the end to file the top edge. The hardest panels to remove are the A6 and A8. A6 has tight clips and require you to lift up. The A8 has the power shades. The rest of the Audi line up only takes less then 2 mins a door for removal.
  14. Viper 5906

    Sounds like a bad connection. Most likely caused by a bad install using t-taps. Did the installer use tach or voltage sensing?
  15. NO

    Lol I don’t even use “NO” when I get quotes through yelp asking if they can get a discount if they bring in multi cars. I just hit the “I don’t intend to reply” button. If a customer is asking that they’re the worst kind. Usually cheap and picky.
