    How Has 2019 Been For Your Tinting

    We tried PDR and went to Ding King training for it last year, around this time. We were able to practice a lot from November to January. Unfortunately and fortunately it got so busy at the shop that we didnt have time to do any PDR, afterwards. We have to go back to training for it. This year has been crazy for us. Just like you, it is now slowing down a bit. I am now training 3 interns for next year. We turned down so many customers. Our PPF and Vinyl are now getting very busy as well. I turned down every single Vinyl Wrap with a full color change because we were understaffed. Its about 2 cars per week for 6 months. We also just landed a gigantic job with our electronics department that will require 2 personnel 24/7/365. Basically its our 3rd year in business and It has been nuts compared to last year. The Tesla giga factory is bringing in many people who are from out of town and people are now making more money per hour because of Tesla. It's hard to find a job that pays less than $14/hr. Even McDonalds pays $12 now.

    Facebook is soooo behind

    @DynamicATL to be honest, your story is the reason why I never gave them a chance. @no ma'am I'm still here, I come in every now and then. I use Car Manufacturer forumn all the time.

    Lol, he isn't sure about what people are talking about because he deletes their comments when they talk about their film. Snake, i feel bad for all the new tinters.

    As long as it doesnt bleed by drowning it in mek.
  7. It is just now that Facebook groups are realizing that Flex Film is trash. I know that many people knew but it was so filtered that all the noobs were with it. But I think thats about to change.

    Paintless Dent Removal classes

    Yes we ended up going to Ding King. But we havent had time to practice the craft. We are slammed with everything. We are booked out for a month+. It is so hard to squeeze it in. We are thinking about taking the free training retake at ding king.
  9. Stewy, what is the name of your shop?  I will react out to Xpel and have the rep contact you.

    Changing our film line up

    That sounds like a nightmare. For me, the film quality is very important but a good rep is alos just as important.

    Changing our film line up

    I tried getting a hold of expel but they wont call me back. It's wierd cuz the rep actually came to our shop trying to sell us expel film 2 months ago. I definitely wont go Lulu if it is rolled backwards. Crystalline is only a mile away from us so we are shit out of luck. @flat rock stan we carry SolarFX Fxtreme which is the ceramic line. It is actually our best seller. It is in line with Global, Im not trying to change SFX product and service is very good to us. Our lineup is SFX Ultra (dye), SFX FXtreme (ceramic), and DUBir (ceramic IR ). In order from good, better, and best.
  12. So I have been thinking about changing our film line up. DUBir is a great film but it is rolled backwards. It is causing the film to roll into itself and we are getting a lot of wasted film. To be honest, it is making us mad that we pay $800 a roll for it to have a very stupid problem. Because of this, we are looking into changing our lineup. What do you guys think I should look into? I'm hearing Huper Optik is a good film.

    Is it time to move on?

    Delearship tinters count 2 front windows as 1 vehicle. If that is the case, that is very possible.

    FlexFilm

    Thats exactly what Im saying. You keep it real. You never delete anything. Good or bad. Thats why this place is so much better than the facebook groups.

    Looks like you already know what is up. You notice how Bhams comment didn't get deleted?
