  1. The Whale Tail

    We use it a lot to get behind third brake lights and hard to reach spots at the bottom of back glasses.
  2. Flexible Tube Light - Must Buy

    I agree! We bought two along with the soaker rope. A must have for all window tint shops!
  3. New Tint Shop Need advice

    I concur. We never advertised cheap prices and never have had sales. We back our workmanship and the film is lifetime warranted. If the quality and customer service is there then the word will soon get out and you will have repeat customers.
  4. Defroster Lines Damaged ???

    I have been tinting for 35 years and removed tint from many rear windows. The quality of the defroster lines these days are terrible. Up until about a year ago I have never had damaged defroster lines and now we have had several. We removed film shortly after install (20-30 mins) when we decided to redo a back window because of dirt on a BMW and it peeled 5 or 6 lines. I have spoke to many glass installers and they all confirmed the quality is terrible and that simply pulling off a piece of tape can damage a defroster. We used a steamer and barely pull at all and it damages some. I am not sure what the answer is except to warn the customer ahead of time but It's still hard not to be liable when we are doing the work.
  5. Advice needed for 21yr tint veteran

    I have over 30 years experience and have used about every brand. We started using Scorpion when they started up. I love all of their product lines and their customer service and staff are second to none as well as their distributors. They offer ceramic, carbon, metallized and dyed films. Give them a call and get some samples.
  6. Toxic dryer sheets anti static back glass

    Any soap, baby shampoo or even your slip solution works just fine.
  7. Appointment Reminders

    Try Pinpoint Scheduling. It will text the customer and remind them for you. We helped develop this software and it has helped to resolve the no show problem. Check it out at http://pinpointscheduling.com/ I had this software custom made for my shop, now it's available to everyone.

  10. SCORPION WINDOW FILMS...anyone using it?

    I have used Scorpion for many years. I use the King Pro series and love it. I have used all their lines. Won't find a better group of people and a better support staff anywhere.
  11. Scheduling Software

    What scheduling software if any does your shop use? We never used any for 30 years and now we started using http://pinpointscheduling.com/ It's been a game changer for sure. No more calling people to remind them of their appointments and the schedule can be pulled up from multiple computer locations. Enter the appointment and the software automatically sends text message reminders. Our no show rate has went down to nearly zero. Check it out. Curious what others may be using?
