  1. Looking for window film installer for automotive and/or residential/ commercial. We are an established and highly ranked tint shop in the Palm Springs area. We work on many high end vehicles and homes in the Coachella Valley so professionalism is a must. Our shop has air conditioning and a plotter. Although knowing how to hand cut is a plus. Must have reliable transportation and cell phone. Pay will depend on experience and skills. Please send resumes to Coolsolutionswt@gmail.com Thank you.
  2. Saint Gobain bought it all... and got rid of Bekaert I think. Still the same great architectural films. Cant speak for auto though.
  3. Yep, Tried that. That application goes straight to Eastman headquarters. They sent the Suntek rep out instead and of course theyr'e not going to help sell llumar because it dosen't benefit them directly.
  4. Hello Guys, I'm trying to get some info on Llumars products and want to introduce it to my line-up. I'm getting stiffed by Eastman because I'm already a Suntek dealer and it appears that they want to keep me with Suntek only. I'd like to give my customers both options. Does anyone have the contact info for Llumars west coast rep? Please PM if so, would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. Scratching issues affect the installer more than the consumer. You can scratch any film with a seatbelt, ring, or keys. They'll all scratch against common things like that. I'm not too familiar with the 3M CS line. But I think it compares most with the Suntek Carbon line-up, in aspects to price, heat rejection, and the way its manufactured. We use Suntek CXP in a harsh environment and it does great with heat rejection and durability. Some minor fading after 4 years isn't bad.
  6. I'm sure seal failure would happen much quicker then glass breakage on tempered dual pane.
  7. Yeah, Suntek isn't too popular on here. But it shrinks great and the price is right... we use their carbon and CXP films. They last in our climate where it gets to be 120 degrees. It does scratch a little easier but I always wrap my plastic tools with something soft. A good habit for any film IMO. We haven't had any customers complain about low angle haze. Give them a try and see what you think.
  8. Yes, its do-able without taking anything apart. For me its the quickest, and easiest. Although, you probably need a film that will heat shrink well. I'm using Suntek, that stuff shrinks easy.
  9. Ive found what works for me. We heat the top half, then heat the bottom half on the inside of the glass using a mac-tac so it dosent scratch the film. usually have a few smaller fingers to hit with the heat gun after the install but I think thats a much quicker solution to removing the spoiler or seems.
  10. I think Solargard's liners are the easiest to release. Im pretty sure all blackout films will all have some strong liners though.
  11. Usually there will already be scratches from the first install. Look closely and tell the customer if thats the case. If not youre probably good to go. Might want to carry some adhesive remover and double 0 steel wool just in case. scrape lightly and use the steel wool to finish it off.
  12. 3 partners would scare me off. Do the math and see how much work you would need pull in to make a decent living.
  13. Have you tried tightening the belt? Worked on my DGI
  14. We just got used to the slippery floor, mopping helps when you can. its like learning how to use your sea legs! just dont leave any liners on the floor and be strick on customers not coming in the work place.
  15. I'm installing some this week. I took it out of the box and it looks exactly like the cxp 70. Feels thinner though.
