  1. Last one to post #879

    Hey JH...what brand film is that? I actually have a customer wanting something like that.
  2. Last one to post #879

    What happens sometimes is you will somehow clean or scrub with a pad more on one window than the other and the film sticks better or it could be the film simply hasn't dried long enough to look like the other side that you don't like? When I use Llumar's Dirt Off sometimes the solution has more time to work on one window than the other so it does like that or it could be like Dynamic mentioned...it's just typical.
  3. 2018 chevy Colorado door panels ?

    I use a snap on radiator clamp tool....a big version of a hook tool and also use a yellow pry tool from Harbor freight. Stick the pry tool between the door panel and the gasket. Pull up on the pry tool and you will see the black clip snapped into the hole on the door panel. I stick the point of the pry tool right next to the clip partially in the hole and wiggle the clip...It will pop due to the pressure and come apart no problem. After you practice on a few they pop right apart. Pull gasket out and tint with ease!
  4. Tint Width

    A 30" will do most back windows, but, as JH said a 36" usually is what you want especially if you are using a plotter and can then cut the whole car out with same roll.
  5. What did you tint today?

    Also did a vehicle that took me back to the days of learning to tint....1978 Chevy El Camino Llumar CTX 5%
  6. What did you tint today?

    2018 Lamborghini Huracan with 884 miles on it done in Llumar CTX 15%
  7. 18 Hurracan

    I did a coupe on Friday...Just like superdave said...shrink rear quarters and doors..very little shrink and no need to pull panel...slides down nicely. On the coupe the front quarters are tight to get into but no issues.
  8. Still have Bronze tint?

    Armolan, one of the sponsors in the banner at the top of this page carries it but only in a one ply and not color stable. Also I think they only have 60” 100 feet. Of course they will cut down to your sizes needed
  9. Bedroom tinting

    Ok yeah..that makes sense...the reflective part of it is what makes it safe...N1020 works on a lot of stuff but I feel really limited when a customer wants something really dark or something he can see out of but them not see in etc...reflective is only way to go and they don't like "mirrored". What do you guys apply if a customer asks that question about seeing out and them not seeing in...I feel like even though reflective it is still going to be reversed at night...see in better than see out. Hope that ramble is understandable. LOL
  10. Painted Matrix removal

    The paint should come right off with a razor blade or #0000 steel wool and maybe some window cleaner. If you want to simply paint over it then a flat black paint will be your best match. Several light coats. Avoid spraying heavy coat. When I did those cars brand new we tinted the matrix. I think most will go that route...The reason for painting was because it would turn white at the very top...you can sand the matrix a bit and that will help but usually not prevent all of it. Hope this helps.
  11. Still have Bronze tint?

    Last time I reached out to them they only had 20" rolls in maybe 35% and they were on clearance. Also I seem to remember it was not color stable.
  12. Bedroom tinting

    So I don't do residential all that much and Llumar has these charts to look at to determine safe install shades and materials...I never seem to get anything as dark as all of you have mentioned here...Are 25, 15, and 5 safe for dual pane windows since it is dual reflective or what am I missing here?
  13. What did you tint today?

    Did you get that back glass in one piece? If it is like the one I did it had to have been intense. Sorry I wasn’t there to help you buddy. Been out of town since Friday. I would be happy to help you whenever you need it.
  14. What did you tint today?

    People drive me crazy with windshield strips. I always do them in 5%. Makes sense that is what everyone would want but always a few that want them the same or lighter than what they have. Then most likely waste the rest of that piece of film used.
  15. Mobile business ideas

    Depends on whether or not you are going to use a vehicle mounted generator or a portable one. Also depends on what you will run off it and if you need electronic grade electricity or not. If you are running heat gun or heavy amp stuff you will need big one. You need to figure all the things you might run (amperage) and then add 10-15% and that is what you need to look for in a generator. I would also advise quietest possible. Some areas I work in will not allow me to run genset so I am forced to run off of lithium ion batteries.
