  1. Thanks Stan, I'm from north jersey. Yea I agree 100%. When I mention it coming out perfect or not I don't mean I'm letting cars leave my garage with tint that looks like a 2 year old installed. My jobs actually come out alot better than any of the chop shops that are doing $89 tint jobs or $100 tint jobs around me. I happen to work in a body shop and some of the cars have tinted windows from shops around me. I look at it and laugh at the fact someone even paid to have that done.I'm not saying I can tint anything or that I'm the best but i don't think I'm the only one that would chose my work over some of the ones around me. I'm still new and trying to learn as much as possible (which is why I come on tintdude.com). I talked to one respectable shop around me that uses llumar about a job or anything and they told me there wasn't enough work to take on another guy. Once again guys thanks for all the advise! hey kurt since your a newbie is it safe to say around town they call you dirt?
  2. yea just go buy a three dollar composite wood clipboard and you will never have that problem again and use a sideswiper for the sides on the bottom and there it is. Ive never had a backglass that a clipboard wouldnt get all the water out!!
  3. what kinda marketing are you guys doin these days
  4. if your doing an audi please be sure to order a new olfa knife and its imperative that you use the original knife that says japan on it!!! also be sure to put an extensive amount of pressure when cutting , especially the back glass as it being european glass you can cut HARDER on it because it can handle more pressure ...... or you can use the carbon blades but be sure to put pressure on the black glass!!! .......
  5. Hunter douglas ( always the first with innovative products it seems ), Kirsch/Levelor, Graber. those are probably the big three. Big money in window treatments, but also a really big learning curve . ive been thinking of doing blinds myself whats a good way to get my hands wet in that bisiness? any learning schools? IMHO, there is a good bit to learn. Here are some basics. You have to options for mounting blinds. Inside mount and outside mount. When measuring, you want to measure 3 ways horizontal, and 3 ways vertical. diagonal measurements dont hurt either, if you feel the window may be off square . major products sold are wood and faux wood blinds, roller/solar shades. cellular shades, plantation shutters , aluminum and vinyl mini blinds, and vertical blinds What i meant by a learning curve is more for measuring plantation shutters , as there are a ton of different framing systems. Great products , and it can give you some really good sales if you are persistent and work hard to make sales. If you need more info PM me and we can talk more about this, as i would grow tired of typing more information than what I already did ...lol thx buddy i really appreciate it!!! and i will pm you soon!!

  7. ILL GIVE THEM A TRY WHAT KIND OF GLASS SHOPS ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT FLAT GLASS?
  8. its an excellent film and looks really nice but you cant use it on some of the cars with thick defrosters because of the thickness of the film.
  9. why bedliner shops?
  10. I was told a company in temecula california called temecula auto glass and tint hires illegals from one of there old employees and that they charge sales tax and pocket it.
  11. sunteks the way to go
  12. hi guys im a mobile tinter so when slow I cant rely on walk ins like shop owners do. A quick question does anyone have any good ideas on drumming up business on slow days ? my advertisement budget is maxed out? and has anyone tried teaming up or renting space at car washes?
  13. the regular doesnt have to be removed, slide the top of the film down to where you can shrink it as high as it goes before it bumps the fin ,shrink it up enough to where it covers the top,shrink the bottom cut it as high as you can ,install and trim the rest on the inside its pretty darn simple vip+
  14. actually I just dry shrink it really slowly I dont use a heat gum with set temperatures I am gangsta I use the milwaukee with the high and low setting I just adjust how close I have the heatgun to the glass
  15. I put money back every year. The problem this year is it took me this long to dig out of the hole I dug myself into last winter when things went into the toilet. Now I get to start digging again. Oh, and my wife does not work, so it's all on me to provide. well put her on the stripper pole jk
