    Morning ever E body Always pay attention
  5. I'm no expert by any means, but it seems this is a no win situation. Given the above statement being true, even if you can get down to where you are dealing with just adhesive left on the glass, using anything to remove it is going to cause some sort of damage. If you use plastic scrapers on chemically soaked adhesive, I would think the build up of the glass particles is still going to scratch the glass. Much like an ice scraper can if there is a particle under it other than ice. If you use four aught steel wool on soaked adhesive you are going to spiderweb the glass with swirls. Although this seems the best method possibly. ATR adhesive remover and some steel wool and elbow grease. Alloy frames shouldn't be affected, you would just need to control run off of chemicals. When installing and not being able to use a blade to pre-clean due to rough glass or improper surface, it's always a white scrub pad and a denture brush or toothbrush to clean with and I don't see either one of those being very effective unless your chemical is really good at breaking up adhesive residue. Keeping up with this one. Interested in the solution.

    2000 VW GTI - rain sensor

    That sensor should be flush against the windshield. When the film goes on you should have to cut around it, therefore not interfering with it. I’ve done quite a few windshield and front strips on those cars and haven’t had anyone complaints. TiNT it. You should be fine.

    Second time I've installed it. Actually like it. Release liner is nice and it blends so well. It just sorta goes away after install like we didn't do anything, but the windows are darker, if that makes sense.

    I would go ahead and get the faucet quick attach PUR system. Not expensive at all and that plus pouring it through the Britta pitcher should do the trick. Otherwise I would think you are buying water because doing a good filtration system would be a waste.

    my new/used truck. $1500 was about to have to spend that much or more on the Jeep, sooooo ......
  21. The tallest side (left looking at the picture) will have most fingers closet to it. Easier to work them too and bottom in the big section. The short side should have some fingers across the bottom possibly but the top shouldn’t have any. Work all your fingers top and bottom. You gotta remember not to tilt your film to much and keep the factory edge level or else your are shrinking towards the sides of the film which doesn’t act very well when you do that.
  22. That is a trimmed top edge after laying out really long all the way around, then trimming closer as I kinda lay the film down with my hand, trying to make sure not to trim and then end up short because of the extreme curve. Lay it out wet, trim properly (1/4" long ALL THE WAY around) then flip it over and dry the piece off and then try a dry shrink and work with curve as you would a Vette rear glass. You can still stretch while dry shrinking. Once it's shrunk, trim to fit all but the side by entry door. It should lay in around the curve fine but because of the change of the inside curve VS the outside curve, you will have to trim some after install because it is smaller on the inside. If you try to cut it fit on the outside it will still be long on install.
