    Ive been tinting windows for 19 years. I have had several other jobs like busing tables and directional boring. Window tinting is by far the best thing that ever happened to me. About me: I speak a small amount of German, enough to hold a conversation. I enjoy listening to music and watching classic movies, customizing cars, and taking my dog to the beach.I hold an AA degree in general studies, and am currently working on my bachelors degree in business management and supervison. If anyone has any questions about tinting please feel free to message me on here.

    White specs BG. Help!

    Invest in a scrubber(a long handle with Velcro to attach a white scrubby pad). Use to that scrub the entire BG very well. Use a paper towel or rag to wipe both sides of the c-pillar, to make sure any dirt is off. Properly squeegee the bg once it’s scrubbed, DO NOT HIT THE TOP OF THE HEADLINER. Get a side swiper (or something like it) to get the bottom edge squeegeed off on your final pass. Final spray on the BG should flush the entire bottom, and the sides from top to bottom. Avoid spraying about 1”-2” from the top of the bg. Then you lay the film in. Hope that helps. 🤷🏻‍♂️

    I’m new to tinting (1 month only) HELP!

    Just hire an experienced window tinter. Sit back and watch him. Collect money and learn at the same time. If you already have a client base that is. Otherwise it’s all repetition and learning the proper way that’s best for you. There are many ways to tint a car professionally. Good luck.

    Camry rear headrest. How to.

    Or save the headache and reverse roll it onto the bg?

    Wiping squeegee after each stroke

    Yes. Every time my squeegee comes off the glass or a piece of film I wipe it. Spending the extra 45-60 seconds(total per job) prevents 5-10 minutes of having to redo a window. You’re not racing a clock, you’re trying to give your customers a professional installation.

    New windshield, time for tint. 50% vs 70%

    70% will help with the heat and UV rays which can damage the dash. But it won’t help with glare at all. And you can’t tell it’s on there, other than a super minimal spec of contamination. It’s nearly impossible to get a windshield installed flawlessly, although as professionals we try for that every time.

    Xsun Window Films

    They called me and I told them I wasn’t at all interested in their film. The girl said ok and told me to have a nice day. I liked that. She wasn’t pushy or nasty. I still don’t want their film, but the girl on the phone wasn’t an asshole. So that’s what merited my comment, and all I have to say about Xsun.

    How much should a dealership worker be making?

    New windshield, time for tint. 50% vs 70%

    I keep 55% ceramic in stock but do a lot of 35% ceramic for younger kids. I had 70% on my Tahoe but I didn’t like the way it performed. I’ll be putting 35% on my next truck. I have a medical exemption for sunscreen(permitted in Florida), so I can tint it as dark as I like. The 55% just doesn’t block enough glare for me during the day.

    Do or do not keep doing dealership work...

    I do a little dealer work, but only for salesman that want quality. And I tell them to pass my number on to their customer. So it keeps it strictly retail. Even used car lots I won’t budge on my price. They keep sending me work. It’s not a lot, but it’s recurring. Screw net 30. Screw having to set aside a $300 job for a $100 job. Screw pushy salesman that don’t even know what they’re selling. I’m lucky in that I don’t need to push dealer work, retail keeps me busy enough.

    Wire-glass skylight fading, tape tint below skylight?

    This is exactly what I was going to recommend. I may even have some I can send you. You’ll need to apply it to the outside of the glass. The manufacturer (Suntek) only warranties it for 3-4 years(if installed by a licensed film company), and only covers a limited amount of issues. I don’t recall the exact specs on the warranty, but it wasn’t lifetime. But it will definitely work. I did the outside of a strip club (extra offices) about 5 years ago and it still looks ok.

    No more convertibles

    I did a Miata that sounds similar to that. I had to cut the defroster on the outside, then thread the wires through the precut holes in the film. The wires were soldered to the glass and then plugged in under a loop of material on the top . It came out fine. I didn’t bother taking any pics of the rear glass. I never do. But if they’re giving you issues, just bid them really high. If the custy goes for it, you’ll get your moneys worth. If they don’t, at least they won’t feel you’re inexperienced. Just a thought.
