    XR plus 70%

    I did an e36 with Plus 70 last month. His car was in great shape and he just wanted heat rejection. Good stuff

    Tape Window Channel?

    Yup, tape them

    White specs BG. Help!

    Many times it’s from the application process. Is the film curling? Maybe the film is hitting the deck or other parts while installing

    Visor strip cutting

    Hate cutting visor strips. Main reason why I’m getting a plotter. I have a 60” roll of 5%. I just pull out what I need and cut on the film handler

    What tint job do you have on your personal car?

    07 Bmw 335i with Xpel XR Plus 35 and XR blue 80 on the windshield.

    Do or do not keep doing dealership work...

    I don’t see the reason for dealership work. You should be able to get the work yourself, and charge what you’re worth. I do 4-5 cars/day charging 350-600 a car. Most dealerships want to pay $150/car, and i’d have to wait up to 3 months for the check. And id have to drop everything for the dealership if they call.

    I’m new to tinting

    My best guess would be Amazon for that purpose

    Suntek or solargard?

    I’ve used Solar Gard for 16 years. HP charcoal had major delamination problems. Some customers would swear that they didn’t roll down the windows, ever, and would still have major delamination after a few years. HP Supreme, NR Supreme, and Ultra Performance will not fade or turn purple. You’ll be amazed at how they’ll keep their color. But the ahesive is crap. And it’s getting worse. I stopped using Solar Gard in December. I was starting to see 2-year old Ultra Perfromancd jobs bubble up on back windows. Sun Tek is, uh, ok. It’s cheap. I used CXP and CIR. CXP does not block the heat that they advertise. No way. And CIR is way too green. Both Sun Tek and Solar Gard scratches like crazy. Especially SG Galaxy.

    How do you guys do it?

    Here is Hawaii we can have total VLT at 70% for windshields. We use Wincos 90. Passes every time. We do 3-400 windshields/year. Before it was legal, people would just ask for it. We used to do about 150/year before it was legal

    New Soak Shield

    I love this product. Never had a problem pulling it out. Just make sure you pull upwards towards the ceiling. On Mercedes CLAs, this is almost a must on the back glass

    Best heat gun

    Old school Makitas were the best, new ones are the worst. I found that the Matcos heat gun come close to the old Makitas. You’ll get 1 1/2 years out of it, and it gets really hot
