    My new goal

    It’s been said that auto tinters never retire... they just do flat glass [emoji4]

    Injuries while tinting

    Freak accident for sure! The razor had to fall perfect for it to do that kind of damage. Worst cut I’ve got from tinting is when I was playing around with shaving a frameless window. I thought it was a good idea to run my index finger across the top edge to see if my shave was below the beveled edge of the glass. Cut the s*** out of my finger - thing wouldn’t stop bleeding. Won’t make that mistake again!

    Best Squeegee To Clean

    Why are you trying to ditch the clear crush? That’s been my go to for a while. No complaints here.

    EWF slip-tac solution?

    Same - been years since I tried it though.

    The best peel board ever made

    Awesome work! I'm scared to ask how much that would cost me.

    What did you tint today?

    Toyota day for me. 1985 Toyota pickup, actually kind of cool - 92k miles, interior was cherry. Came out pretty good. (if you stand 10ft away [emoji23]) Also did a ‘12 ish Tacoma. Double whammy on this one... Shell and and vent visors!

    Visor strip cutting

    I agree, a 10” roll makes life easy. When I reorder 5% I order the 30” roll and have them cut it 20/10 so I have a roll for side windows and a roll for visors. One edge will be better than the other so just check before laying out your film on the WS and put the cleaner edge on the bottom. I usually just grab a tape measure and pull measurements from the top molding to the bottom of the visor and make sure it’s the same on both sides.

    Paper towels

    I like the blue shop towels but they’re pricey!
  11. Just did a front match on my 2019 Tundra with Global QDPC 18%. Not a perfect match, but Toyotas never are. Planning to do the shield in 70% QDPC, and I’ll probably wrap the rest of the truck in the 18% over the factory privacy glass. Just too busy tinting other people’s stuff! Also not looking forward to that back window lol.

    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.
  15. 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.
