  1. I am trying this for sure! this whole thread has been amazing!
  2. Hi Shady, What is Probond and what type of steel wool are you using?
  3. i've been watching your vids. Doing a BG in under 2 minutes is awesome! How much does that blow torch help with that? Could you do your method with just a heat gun?
  4. it was epic for me to see!
  5. So is the Ryker Method pocket shrinking? Do you recommend that process? Also I feel I have less control with baby powder. Meaning it's definitely different from dryer sheets or soap. I'm trying everything at the moment to see what gives me better results. It's all personal preference? The "Ryker Method" is a pocket shrink but you use 2 heat guns at once instead of just one and sealing down the pocket. The video is in a link on my signature here. I don't think you will find a smoother shrink with any other technique. I do shrink the tops on some with the over/under but just lift most. That is the most insane thing I have ever witnessed! How did you come up with that?

  7. I'm going to give it a try tonight. I like the wet check. It's an extra step, but me struggling with a bad shrink is way worse.
  8. Became too much of a hassle and it was the least profitable. I'm a one man show when it comes to the tinting so I was bouncing between the resi/commercial FG work, shades/blinds and auto tinting. On top of that I regularly help out with our window/door/construction division. Something had to go and the most obvious thing was the Auto. So happy I gave it up but I do miss being able to close the bay doors, crank up the music and get work done in my own lit yeah the music is the best part. Just jamming out and working!
  9. i have trouble affording it
  10. I've seen that done with good results. going to give it a go later today. Why did you get out of tinting cars?
  11. Hi everyone, Thanks for the awesome tips! I am going to try everything you have all recommended. At the moment I am using the Traditional H pattern to secure the film to BG. That is how I was shown from my first day of shrinking. Any other ways you would recommend. Also, should I ditch the dryer sheets in favor of regular bar soap? I am scared of baby powder but I know it can work too. I know there is a lot of different techniques out there when it comes to shrinking. I am just trying to find a system and get it down to improve quality of the shrink and to speed up the process. Sometimes there seems to be too many options lol. Experience is everything though. That's why you guys are the pros.
  12. Thanks for the info no ma'am! Using Metallic Shade from 3M. it's their cheapy film that I use to practice with.
  13. Hi Everyone, Longtime Reader, First time posting. I've been learning to shrink BG for the last little while and everything has gone smoothly except for a few Bubbles? of film that seem to not want to work with me. I'm using the dryer sheet method, Wagner heat gun, and A blue hard card or sometimes a felt Mactac squeegee when I shrink. Any how here are a few photos of what I am talking about. These are not creases but bubbles. I try to work them out but to no avail. The same bubbles show up after I do the install as well. Using yellow turbo and BlueMax for install. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
