    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!
  8. 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.
  12. 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.

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

    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.
