  1. thanks for clearing that up
  2. dude your page is nice.
  3. i think i met mike about a year ago in charlotte. usb drive on plotter was ripped out and i think he came to fix it.
  4. what is mancold?
  5. im having pain in my hands and wrist from removals. pulling the tint off and scraping the glue. hell friday 1990 acura legend had to scrape the whole back glass and removal early that morning on commercial. .. then saturday 2 full r&r walk ins. it hurt driving my car this morning and trying to hit my vape.( you have to squeeze it)
  6. at our shop everything has a warranty unless you have us tint over pre-existing film. we track the warranty by date of install. on receipt and what kind of film was used. standard= 1 year warranty premium= 3 year warranty supreme= lifetime warranty ultimate= lifetime warranty ultimateXP= lifetime warranty we also have an extended warranty you can add on for broken windows. if you dont have a receipt then you better pray i remember you.
  7. i could see a customer getting mad at painting the windows..
  8. when new cars come in with purple tint i just say probably came from florida and tinted with gilla
  9. people think its all the same stuff... had this guy come in with 8 rolls of gila from autozone... told him to return it and get his money back... its doodoo
  10. we always say no...
  11. i pour some 91% alcohol in my bottle and shake and spray it out. just a few ounces and a few times and rinse it out. works pretty good
  12. never had any good luck with out using straight ammonia let it soak 3 soakings and then clean off. and if that doesnt work try 91 percent rubbing alcohol just be careful with it. if a steamer doesnt work then black bag it with windex
  13. what about a g wagon back half no roll downs. i had to do one and it was insane with light gaps.
  14. see
  15. it took me a whole year to get comfortable doing a whole car sunroof and windscreen. still cant do a beetle or c6 vette. i also work at a shop that does at least 4 cars a day. so i would say for you to just pay attention and try to do as many strip and retints as possible and if you are using a plotter learn to hand cut it will make you closer to your work. if you mess up a window with a plotter you can just reprint. if you hand cut and mess up youll pay more attention. also r&r your own vehicle and try out different shades. even if its illegal.
