    What are you paying for 20" and 40" rolls? Just so I can compare price to solargard

    Switching Tint Supplier

    Sry for late reply. To answer some questions I too load so no I dont remove seals on most cars. I'm not familiar how to remove most seals and don't want to be removing door panels so I just top load cause that's the only way I know how. Thing is though I haven't had as many ppl come back as this year but I'm not doing anything differently. If anything I try to get bottom seals cleaner than I used to. Just trying a few things to see if I still get peeling windows after I try different tint. Also I've been having quality issues with solargard for a while. I find little cuts in the tint sometimes, scuffs and sometimes bugs and what not. Also sometimes it feels like they send a completely different tint that curls opposite way of what I'm used to and just rediculasly static. Not happy .

    Switching Tint Supplier

    Hey guys, I started tinting back in 2015 and when I started I decided to go with solargard NR Charcoal only because a well know shop from a town over used it and I figured it would be a good film to use. Well long story short I've noticed a decline in quality in the film and after a brutal winter here north of the border I find myself replacing more windows than I'd like cause the start peeling. I'm assuming adhesive failure.. I've done some research and alot of ppl recommend Global. What line of tint is the most common that installers like from Global? Also anyone here have a contact number for a supplier in Ontario?

    Tinting plastic question

    Hey fellow tinters. Ive been full time tinting on my own for 2 years. Today im tinting a fiat 500L and noticed the rear quarters are plastic. Ive heard many times not to tint the plastic. Im curious why cant it be tinted? What happens? Will the tint not stick? Thanks for feedback in advanced

    Ok thanks. Where do you buy your tools from? I usually use 44tools.

    What squeege is best?

    Do you buy a 5 inch beveled blue max blade and swap them out or do you buy a 120" roll of blue max unbeveled?

    What squeege is best?

    How often would that be? I just changed out my blue turbo like a week or 2 ago and its already streaky. Is this normal?

    What squeege is best?

    Hey guys, just curious what squeege you use for getting maximum water out but not too hard that it will scratch the tint. Also how often do you switch out the squeege blade? I usually order my tools from 44tools. Anywhere else that offers better or cheaper tools? Im from canada btw so canadian site wouldbe better but i usually end up buying from American site. Thanks

    Tint doesnt want to tac

    Thanks for feedback. Seems as i have fixed my problem. I cut back on the j j quite a bit and wet just the film rather wetting the glass and film when installing. I also believe the temp had a factor in it as well.

    Tint doesnt want to tac

    I have noticed that on used cars the tint sticks better than when I get a new car from a dealer. Also im using up product that i got on a end of year clearance sale from solargard. Is there a chance the tint is defective or do i just forget how to do my job?.

    Lol, of course the liner is removed. No it wasnt a new roll, but ive been having this issue on lots of cars lately. Seems like one car comesin and it tacks down np and then the next car im fighting the tint.
