  1. Can you tint windshield over glare strip?

    Ehh. I did my full shield in 70% ceramic over my 5% visor and the line isn't enough to bother me. Maybe I'm just used to it? However I will always recommend a removal and reinstall when doing a full windshield after the fact.

    x2 Interwest Tools
  3. What did you tint today?

    Those aren't very fun. Those doors are loooong!
  4. What did you tint today?

    2019 Veloster. Just one rear window on the new ones. That two piece rear window on the older model was a pain. Express Classic Black.
  5. What did you tint today?

    ^ Looks like film from @SolarTintWF / @legacywf

    Hey @TQtinting turn on your private messages! I have question for ya.
  7. 15-18 Sonata

    Anybody know how to remove the headrests on these damn things? I know the center headrest is fixed, but it would be nice to remove the sides. Tried everything and didn’t want to break headrest on a car with 50 miles on it.
  8. Hmmm if you look really close there are some inconsistencies on the edge that aren’t typical with a plotter. I’m guessing just a bad hand cut. But who knows. Anyways that’s besides the point. Just play it cool and ask the shop if they wouldn’t mind redoing the window. Sometimes tinters like to see what they can get away with.
  9. New tint

    I personally remove all stickers unless they’re really small. Snagged one the wrong way once, creased the film and had to redo the whole window. Won’t happen to me again.
  10. 2018 chevy Colorado door panels ?

    I believe he’s talking about tucking the film itself behind the seal in typical top load fashion. Not actually tucking the seal down.
  11. Small Miscut, Should I Ask for Fix?

    Damn. Those tight corners on frameless windows are annoying. Been there before. But I would never let it leave like that.
  12. Glue smearing or tearing armolan and solar fx !

  13. 2013 Hyundai Veloster

    Just did a 2016. Easy car for sure. I found it well worth the time to remove the spoiler. Remove the center plastic trim piece on the rear hatch, this will expose (7) 10mm nuts. Remove the nuts then then spoiler will be held on by two clips - one on each side. Hit those with a plastic pry tool (they’re tight!) then the speakers spoiler is out of your way for a quick and easy shrink. I just left the electrical and washer fluid line and attached.
  14. Windex only for wetting and application

    Well if you haven’t realized by now, this forum is not geared toward the DIY, but more for industry professionals.
  15. Best tools for back glass

    Yeah the black rubber on these works pretty good for both prep and install. If you have extra cut one into a triangle shape. I’m loving mine for roll up windows. It works way better than the Tri Edge plus, and is more low profile than the conquerer.
