  1. Quite simple, as I has issues with other rear screens recently, I pulled the film off my car to have a closer inspection. Had no complaints otherwise.
  2. Thats awesome. I wish anyone continued success with anyone who uses this film. I have not had such fortune. Moving on, simple as that. You keep saying that is TB I havent been ordering TB, just CB. Whatever.
  3. Heres a gift for you fanboys, it was included with the bad EWF film sent back UPS return to Howard. If you wish to continue to deny the proof thats your choice. And keep using it thats your choice as well. In closing, this film was a great value and as an economy line worked well until the failure(s). Its not color loss, its distorted!!!! You will see it for yourself when you get the pieces back. Although in that other sample there is some color "change".
  4. Glad you have great customer service Howard, I don't doubt that at all. I'm angry right now and done with this product so don't call me. I did save the film for show, right along side the 3M film gone bad. Not making false statements here, ocalastinter I'm not the thug your refering to I've been doing this sh** a long time and I work my a** off daily. I'm done here. 3 strikes, 3rd one this Monday coming up.
  5. Never? Hard to believe thats true. I have 2 redo's and have another scheduled for Monday. Heres 2 pictures of back windows that I had to redo last week with CB gone bad. As far as wanting to making a claim on film, I know how the process goes and I don't want your film credit, rather not continue to use this film especially when it continues to fail. Thanks but no thanks. [snip] How long ago was the film installed? 2 years, and thats not glue thats the tint

  7. Not yet, this just happened this week with 2 customers. As I said, if it happens again I have a decision or changes to make. I realize no film lasts forever but 2 years? Maybe less? Dont get me started on a couple othwr issues with CB because I could. I take in consideration that this film has a low cost so I've never said anything till now. Replacing back windows is costly I don't care about film reimbursement either, by then money and possibly reputation is lost.
  8. Been using CB for a few years this past month have 2 customers (so far) with back windows hazing up. If I get one more issue im dropping this film. And no I dont use too much soap otherwise the side glass tint would have issues also.
  9. I have been ordering from them for 12 yrs, great service and no issues when it comes to the film. It shrinks great looks great. Using Marathon line, some Renegade.
  10. In my experience working for someone else commission was the way to go. It benefits you and the employer. How so? Well they will want to work faster to make more money naturally. If they mess up, they have to fix the problem and wont be on the clock while fixing it. Hopefully you can hire people who make little to no mistakes anyway. An hourly employee will work slow because they make the same money no matter what.
  11. Common sense should tell you to do some research first. When you buy a new tv, you would do the same thing right? Despite a "limited lifetime warranty" a good film should last up to 10yrs or more depending on the exposure to the sun. Its well worth having because it reduces fading, glare, and helps your a/c work more efficiently. Ask friends, co-workers, or the dealer where you bought your 4-runner for a recommendation. If you see a nice car in a parking lot and the tint looks good, ask the owner where they had it done and how was the experience.
  12. Got a flyer in the mail about this film. The website looks pretty good also. Anyone know if this is just another rebox? They claim its made in the USA. From the website it looks like they aim to sell a package deal, security + film, remote start and gps locator service.
  13. I've used all 3 brands you mentioned above. EWF TB, good looking film but I found it a bit rigid when it came to shrinking. Its been less then a year so not sure about the stability, we shall see. Northern Tint: Cheap, decent to shrink. Makes a good learning film. (order the stuff on special if your learning) Also they advertise the film as CS but after 1 year the film showed fading at the top roll ups on my work van. Its not on there anymore. Johnson: Been dealing with them the past 12 years. Always been good film and reasonably priced. Although they are steadily raising the price which at anytime someone does that people tend to shop around. I like the website and order from there frequently. I don't mind trying different films once in awhile, you should too. Besides, keeping a variety is good for those "match" 1 window jobs.
  14. Those look good, I'm thinking of making one with swivels.
