    To be 3M certified or not

    3m has a huge name that people know. other than that, there is nothing that 3m has over any of the other mannys. years ago i tried 3m and after buying and using 3 rolls, i went back to my other film. don't know about anyone else, but i can honestly say that 99% of people that call just want their car tinted. i rarely get questioned on what i brand or type of film i use. bottom line, if you can tint and tint well, then you will make money.

    Got hustle on Yelp

    love when people say im overpriced
  10. i use the ultra i also use it pretty heavy so i always have plenty of slip. being that i use the solarfx carbon and the glue is so aggressive, it tacks up really quick with a couple passes of the squeegee. i don't measure how much but if i had to guess, i would say i add about a good tablespoon to my poly 2. i gave the slime a try a couple years ago and threw the rest away after 1 use. went right back to the joy.
  11. joy dw liquid-been using for 20 years-never a problem $62 tint slime $2 joy

    How do you cool your shop in the summer?

    your shop is a little smaller than mine but a little higher ceilings-3 ton mini split unit would take care of you fine. can buy it for $2000 and install yourself i have a 2 ton in a 32x32 building-well insulated-cold as hell on a 90 degree day

    Told the Dealership To Stick it

    used to do all the dealers in my area til a mobile tinter came along. never really needed them but i did the work at a discount(this was years ago) so the mobile guy starts working with the dealers and as i find out that they gave him work, i would call them and explain that our deal is now off. now when they call, i charge retail PLUS. the plus is whatever i am feeling that day or time. also, stopped taking POs so never get stuck or wait for money. great to have the upper hand. i love when they tell me that the only reason i am doing the work is that they were desperate to get one done and that i'm too expensive. hahaha
