    No blades on glass

    I keep trying to get away from using cutting blades on glass. I stopped cutting the patterns on the car long ago and that part wasn't hard, i actually prefer not cutting the pattern on the car. But using a blade to clean windows i get away from but come back, it just seems like nothing cleans as good and fast as a blade. What have you all been using to get that just scraped clean that's like scraping with a blade or better?

    I've been watching on youtube about the people in small move-able homes and all these people that live in Vans or trucks, if i didn't have kids i'd probably be seriously thinking about it, getting sick of this housing crap, when i've rented it sucked, when i'd owned homes it sucked. Can even get a nice small pull behind mobile home to pull behind any vehicle for about a years rent. Instead of couch surfing i'll probably be driveway surfing lol.

    Cleaning windows

    @TintNerdz213 I feel scrubbing back glass with the straight 409 helps clean better to make the film stick a little better, then the Dawn 4x and scrub again, then i make sure it's all dry after cleaning. i use one of those 3M tub and tile handled scrubbers for leverage when scrubbing, i just slap a white scrubby over the existing blue scrubber so i can re-use the handle, certain back glass i use 3M 000 synthetic steel wool instead of white scrubby. i always use the 000 synthetic steel wool and 409 to scrub the dot matrix. I use the Joy Non Ultra and Dawn Simple clean for slip because they're the gentlest dish liquid meaning less chance of adhesive abuse and that Dawn Simple Clean is amazing slip, i wouldn't use Dawn 4x for slip because of it's higher acidic cleaner content, but most pro glass cleaners use it for window cleaning, it works well for side glass, i don't use 409 on side glass.I'm not sure what exactly that i do is good or bad, i know it works for me.

    Cleaning windows

    I use Joy Non-Ultra or Dawn Simple Clean for my slip, and Dawn 4x to clean windows, i also use Formula 409 on back glass then Dawn 4x. I also use different knives for different cuts. I'm sure someone can do an install with one of everything but i tend to overthink the chit out of everything.

    Need advice on few questions(newbee)

    i agree on the bulldozer. Also, the softness of the rubber on the end of the bulldozer pushes the film between the raised dot matrix dots a little better than a harder squeegee, or wrap a paper towel around a hard card and squeegee it so you get down between the dots good and dry it good.

    Wrap with dings

    What do you do about wrapping an older vehicle with dings? Is there a way of hiding them other than body work? Or do you just wrap right over the ding?

    That's how most film companies operate, but more importantly is the film quality, personally i like when they leave me alone. I've also found the ones that try to sell sell sell to me aggressively can have poor product. Are you wanting to use them because they sell it to you good or were you impressed with the product that you sought them out? You didn't mention film quality.
