    New distributor needed

    I've been using global films for several years now. For the past few months my distributor has been out of the films I need at least 50% of the time when I try to order. I'm not here to bash anyone or cause conflict. I'm located in Tennessee so who would you recommend me trying?

    Heat shrink pattern cut for windshield

    Use just the tips of your fingers to split the fingers youre trying to shrink. Don't let the set pattern bind you up. Pick up the edge and dry the pattern out to let the corner float some. It will give you the extra room you need to finish the shrink.

    Homemade 6ft visor strip cutter!

    I use qdp as well. My edges have been jacked up too.

    Old headliners falling apart???

    I use a stapler on the edge to hold them in place.

    Wet shaving

    Nice technique, but what I really want to know is, how did you get that damn shirt? I've been asking for one for 3 years...

    '17 Mustang peanuts

    I sand them with 1000 grit 3m paper. I've never had a problem with scratching them. If you slow your shrink down, it allows the tint to shrink more evenly instead of concentrating the heat in a small area. This makes the shrink job smoother. I use the dry soap shrink method btw.

    Between 20% and 5%?

    I'd recommend staying away from anything from suntek. Global offers qdp in 15%. That should put you were you want to be if everything was removed and redone.

    Tractor Glass Removal Sequence

    I always take those out and charge accordingly. I also have enough sense to account for the torque area to prevent the twist. Tractors are in dusty fields all day and build up an immense amount of dust. No way can anyone tint one of those and have a professional install without glass removal imho unless it's a new unit.

    BG Cleaning is inconsistent now?

    When I reverse roll, I'm always aware of where my fingers are holding the release liner as I lift it up to spray. I bend that area down and rinse it before applying the liner back to the tint. You wouldn't believe how many dead skin and dirt debris you can deposit with this one crucial step.

    Age of SolarFX?

    I don't know anything about Solarfx but, I do know about suntek carbon. I used that junk for about 4 years and its still coming back to bite me in the ass with bubbling back glasses and severe fade issues. I've got pictures to prove it. The tint that I use and completely stand behind now is global qdp. It's proven to me to stand up as well as any tint I've used. Just my 2 cents.

    1970 dodge coronet

    I've done one and it wasn't too bad but, I cut it out first. That's the only way to do any old car in my opinion.
