  1. Ive done a lot of them for a dealer here in town. On one of them the amplifier burned up. Lucky for me the dealer warrantied it. I just wish I new why the amp burned up. Everything was covered and there wasn't any moisture around the factory amp. The only recommendation I have is to use as little water as possible. Disconnect battery while doing back window and let sit all day before plugging back in and returning to customer.
  2. I got some 10ft carpet runners with rubber backing and put them on the floor. One on either side of the car. The water absorbs into the carpet and keeps it contained. I clean the mats once a week with a high pressure hose. While it doesn't stop the water stains completely, it does help a lot.
  3. It happened to me too. It gets wet and shrinks in the sun. I had to replace the entire dash for the customer. It was a brand new Cherokee and they didn't want to take to upholstery shop. Cost me over 4,000 for the new dash. I don't do cars with leather inserts on the dash anymore.
  4. We have the Mercedes account here in Fresno and we have done our fair share. Ive experienced this problem with about 2% of the installs. The antenna for the transponder is in the back glass. Not sure what causes it not to work. The good thing is that is has always started working again. I hate the not knowing tho.
  5. What I've done lately is I will dry shrink the film but I won't use a glove or a hard card. I dry shrink and let the film just lay naturally without stretching or pushing down. Apply smooth even moderate heat. It takes longer to heat shrink this way but no more peanuts. Let me know if you would like me to post a video and the next time I do one I will record.
  6. General liability with garage keepers. You don't need workmen's comp for yourself but you will for your nephew. http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/do-i-need-workers-compensation-insurance-family-owned-business-california.html
  7. It was 660.00. We did two this Saturday and saved me lots of time.
  8. Ive been using for over 6 months with no issues. It has a nice color, shrinks decent and the price is right. I only use the S5 but I've sampled both the S7 and S9 and they also shrank well I just didn't like the color of the S7 and S9. It was too green.
  9. This might seem like overkill but what I did is I ordered a new back window from Honda that way I can shrink on the stand and then install. We've already done about 6 so far this year so its gonna be a popular car. Im charging every customer an extra 40.00 dollars above the average price to make up for the price of the window. Im already a third of the way there. I realize this is isn't the best answer if you are doing low volume but this is definitely a huge time saver.
  10. Not really an answer to your question but we don't take the panels off of the Fusion. You can pull the top of the panel enough where you can pull the weather stripping out. Use a hook tool to make it a little easier. Saves a lot of time and broken peices.

  12. Do you have the part number for the sika primer?
  13. Try Rayno S5. Its a carbon not a ceramic tho.
