  1. Anybody test out and determine what grit you can use on the glass without scratching or blemishing in any way? I see people using less than 1500 grit and wonder how it's not scratching the glass or doing something to it somehow. One guy on FB a while back said he uses 400 grit on the whole back glass using a drill attachment. What's the roughest grit you've used successfully that won't scratch the glass?

    Verizon has something to help it, since i signed up for it the calls slowly started reducing as they identify more numbers and what calls i accept. Doesn't get 100% of them but it's not nonstop like before, i'm sure ATT and the other carriers have something similar https://www.verizonwireless.com/solutions-and-services/call-filter/ ever feel like the phone companies allow it so they can sell a filter?

    First Time

    Ratio is usually 1 oz per gallon which comes out to about 8 mls per quart/liter. I'm usually within 8 mls up to about 12 mls (12 when i need extra slip) of Dawn Simple Clean per quart or liter.
  7. You either gotta cut bait or fish, your boss is staying focused on his main moneymaker, and ideas like yours could leave him open for liability. You may have better luck asking him to rent the booth after closing time each night, but in his head he'll picture people walking around his place when he's not there. Also, if you're as good as you claim, he's not going to help you build what he may perceive as your new business and lose his painter. Some people like to stay in that comfortable "if it ain't broke so don't fix it" thought train.

    Roughest grit sandpaper on glass

    flexible sandpaper wrapped around an old squeegee or wrapped around a hard card wrapped with a towel works decent https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LIXEKZ4/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_3BAsDbDBXFBGT

    For those who use KEG sprayers

    I'll give you an actual answer instead of trying to sell you something else, no that tank won't work, having a top like this is the easiest to work with and modify:

    Micro scratches

    if it's scratched looking could be glass that was scraped with the wrong blade, or a dull blade, or a blade that caught something while scraping that made the edge bad and they kept scraping maybe the edge progressively worse, or a blade used when the glass has a coating a blade shouldn't be used on.

    Xpel Prime CS vs SunTek Carbon

    I rarely hear anything good about Suntek but it seems like a lot of people use it, why?

    Out this way those Edward Jones guys are a joke, they hire some kid, put a suit on him and have him make like he knows what he's doing. They have offices in strip malls.

    Agreed. Slow and steady wins the race. I tried a stock simulation site (rather than use real money to learn initially) and unless it's your full time job it's hard to keep track and make money playing individual stocks, and when you do make money it seems more like luck than skill, and nowadays businesses are more worldwide connected and complex. People like Warren Buffet aren't looking for the quick fix, they look for diversification and growth over time. There are a lot of great money making funds out there.

    Rear window removal

    Maybe someone over-used an adhesive promoter or their own glue cocktail to stick that on. I use ATR to remove adhesive and it kicks ass, i don't know why everyone isn't using it. https://44tools.com/atr-adhesive-remover-1-gal/
  20. Get a longer file for longer cuts and save time- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001R1UZPQ/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_y0YnDbCQVJGYD i use these for the ends that go into the rubber if needed, thin and flat and good for fine control with a slight flexibility to it, could probably us it for all filing- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007YRCIWA/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_E0YnDbPW350EX

    Make it a mobile lair, I keep seeing these videos about people living in small vans, or small campers and small homes.. seems pretty cool. I was born and raised in a crappy little apt in the Bronx and there were 8 of us, i didn't have a room and slept on the couch until i was 12 lol i have low standards, anyplace with a mattress is a win for me lol. A lot of these small pull behinds are pretty well made and efficient, also when it's paid off no rent or living in someones basement.
  22. and/or this 24" roll of carpet tape, comes in 36" also good for back decks and making quarter glass templates - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FMHJ4YW/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_U_w8CmDbZ4ABNGR
