    Steel wool or chore boy for d-lines

    Thanks bud, appreciate your input.
  2. I tint toyotas all day long but I do get customers that bring in other manufactures or employees personal vehicles where some defroster lines like to hold water/air and create the "peanut" or simply not wanting to lay down. For some reason recently I've done a 02 Lexus es300, 06 Subaru Impreza, 2017 mustang, and a 16 charger. All have given me trouble with this. I was recommended trying out a chore boy by a fellow guy I use to tint with but I've heard it'll scratch glass, I've also seen people post about steel wool. I'm wondering which I should use or maybe get both? Also are you guys using this and replacing your white scuffer for these thick line bgs', or are you using the pad, scuff, and squeegee as your prep before installing. My shrink technique has never changed, always the h pattern dry shrink with dryer sheets. And info is appreciated thanks!

    2018 Camry

    Just got mine too, thought I'd share how my install went for everyone's first. Working at a toyota dealership, I've tinted every generation Camry, and this one by far is the easiest one to date. Super easy shrink on the bg, even easier install with it being not as tall as the previous generations. The new quarter windows remind me of the Lexus quarters, super easy to slip and squeegee. All seals pull just like the 2017's, only complaint was not being able to remove the 3rd brake light but you don't even need too. I was able to get a side swiper behind it and bulldoze the rest perfectly fine. I was worried when I first saw photos of this new Camry of how it might be a setback, but I'm happy to say this is my favorite toyota money maker $$$

    Wagner Furno heat guns

    I also am a convert, I used a porter cable heat gun for almost a year and man it was heavy. It finally took a poop and then I started to use the Wagner and I love it. I'll always stick to it. Nice and light and heats up fast and gets HOT.

    6in lidco white hard card

    That's my other hard card I use, quarters only though. It scratches the film. I bottom load everything so I also use that white card for my top edge.

    6in lidco white hard card

    I use that finger to slide into corners, works very well but the integrity gives up after a couple weeks, would be nice to find a firmer card with the same amount of slip.

    6in lidco white hard card

    This is by far my go to hard card for my top and bottom edges as well as my corners, I cut them in a shape to where corner access is easy and time efficient. My only problem is that I can only order them through llumars tool catalog at my dealership! Anyone know where I can find these bad boys at? I can only find either the grey ones (no slip on film) or the ones with a felt edge which is not needed, even though I could probably take it off. Please help! I will buy 100!
