  5. thanks for the tips ,,,,,,and yes , the owners are usually always a problem , did the m6 , it was pretty easy , probably just going to stay away from the m5 ,,,not worth taking a chance , i have other cars i can do that i dont have to worry about computer getting wet

  7. is this the same as the 2013 , anything to be careful with or tricks to make it easier install . have one coming in tomorrow
  8. Thanks for taking time to post the waver , ill be printing it out for future use
  9. i did save the tint ,,, and its only a few lines removed , if it was my fault , all lines would be damaged , since its only about 5 lines , that shows manufacture defect ,,,..either way , shes gonna have to spend some money to take me to court ,,,i bent over backwards trying to help and explain ,,,im done with the lady ,,,, she sent her daughter in recording me and called police before she ever attempted to contact me herself ,,,its ridiculous
  10. we throw our blades in a tool pouch ,,,( bag ) aint got time for that
  11. i posted the other day about defrost lines coming off of a dodge charger when i removed a poorly installed tint job . when i scheduled the appointment , i talked to the grandmother , explained to her it was a time consuming process and that we do everything we can to protect the lines and not damage the glass , but there was that possibility the lines could be damaged . the grand daughter brings in the car drops it off ,,,when she came to pick it up , i let her know we wernt able to save some of the lines , they leave the car here without paying , comes back yesterday with the police and the mother whom ive never spoke with , wanting some sort of discount or glass replaced . when i told her that i made the person i spoke to on the phone aware it could be damaged she tells me she probably didnt understand and that it was her mother ,( the grandma ) that still uses a flip phone cause she does not understand technology and how things work ...she informed me that the previous day when her daughter came in she was secretly recording me ,,,lol,,,who does that ? any ways , i was nice , got her a deal on the glass told her if she went and paid to have it replaced that i would retint for free ,,,i think im offering more than i have to to make things right ,,,,anyways just giving you guys a follow up on how this is all playing out . she mentioned talking to her lawyer , i think she may try to take me to court .....i dont see a judge making me pay for a glass from removing film that they had previously installed ,,,sorry so long winded . ide like to hear your thoughts
  12. thanks for yalls input
  13. the customer left the car with me ,,,didn't pay said they had to talk to a family member (mom) before they decided what to do or how they would handle it .... i know its nothing i did to cause the damage to the defrost and the problem is on the manufacturing side ,( they simply make things cheap these days ) that being said , i didn't originally tint the car , customer brought me the car to repair cheap tint that they had installed on the car when it was purchased from dealer . although it is unlikely that the original installer did anything to damage the lines ,i wasn't there when the window was prepped for tint . if it would of been my film that i installed and had to redo , i would gladly pay for the glass i don't feel the customer should play the blame game when i was hired to clean up a mess and redo a poor tint job the whole ordeal is frustrating . any other shop i know in the area would of sent the customer on their way and they would of never known there was any damage to the glass for the next 6 months then they would have acted clueless ,,,,just hate doing the right thing and making the customer aware of the issue and having them think i was the cause of the damage .
  14. not all the lines are getting warm , the film came off with very easy , i just hate that the lines are ruined , would like to offer an explanation to the customer rather than sorry about your luck , it happens
  15. i just bagged and removed film from an 08 charger , film came off easy but defrost lines came with it ,,,does this particular vehicle have any issues with the lines ,,,in my 20 years of tinting this has never happened to me . ive heard of it happening but i guess ive been lucky till now . anyways ,,just seeing if anyone else has had this happen on this particular car .....thank you in advance for your response
