    New windshield, time for tint. 50% vs 70%

    No experience with the 80% here. But sounds like you can’t go wrong either way.

    New windshield, time for tint. 50% vs 70%

    I couldn’t agree more. I can definitely see the greenish/khaki color. As JH said, it doesn’t look too bad once installed. Undoubtedly not the best looking 70% out there, but I’m impressed with its performance and it has been a valuable film for me to keep in stock.
  3. I don't tint everyday but I've been using the same blue max for 4 years and it still works great. Just ordered the red line extractor and fusion shorty (without thumbstop) I'm excited to try something new. Orange crush didn't remove enough water for me.

    I do all my shields in Global QDPC 70% - have this on my personal vehicles as well and I love it. Most of the time when I measure VLT after install it comes in around 61%. Lots of people think 70% is too light, but if you compare side by side the 70% does add a pretty good shade to the windshield.

    Best way to remove film?

    What chemical do you usually apply with the bagging method? I've never really got it to work. Seeing as we have the same climate I though I would ask.

    No blades on glass

    The smart cards are okay for shrinking, never thought about them for prep. Gator blades are awesome for prep. Just like a plastic razor blade but twice as wide and much more comfortable to use.

    I found this entertaining! Pretty impressive IMO. https://youtu.be/H9Cm1xgCy3g

    I'm surprised the customer approved the "glass removal" price - us jeep guys are cheap! Lol

    What did you tint today?

    How big of a pain is it to remove the rear quarter glass on the Cherokee? Are the seals reusable? I’ve always had decent luck just tinting in the Jeep. Looks like you got some awesome results on that one!

    Tint peel boards! Let’s see yours

    I think I saw the video where you showed your method a while back. Anybody have a link for it?

    Sensor on Town and Country windshield?

    Yep what Bham said. That’s a Viper remote start/alarm antenna.

    15-18 Sonata

    Oh yeah - rookie move on my part. If you want to remove the rear headrests there’s a pin hole opposite of the adjustment button. Insert a pick tool and the headrest comes right out. Makes life easier.

    Streaks Behind Brake Light

    I totally agree. I hate cutting out brake lights, looks much cleaner without for sure. However I always cut them out, unless someone specifically asks me not too. Just trying to cover my ass haha! Utah law says there can’t be any film between the brake light and glass, highway patrol is known to write “fix it” tickets for it. Even though they did away with annual safety inspections, this is something they still enforce on the road. - Lame! I just don’t want someone coming back to me asking me to redo their rear window because they got written up for it.

    Streaks Behind Brake Light

    Not a bad Idea! Didn't think of that. Those are black & white squeegees are about as thin as it gets. I've been doing lots of work for the local Hyundai dealer and the Sonata rear decks are tight! Thanks @Bham
