  1. Handjob!!!!

    Yes grip and slip are 2 very important things when it comes to handjobs!
  2. Is 5% tint on the windshield reasonable?

    I’ve got 5% on my windshield and honestly it’s great. I drop my kids off for school in the morning and no one can even tell I just got done slamming down a dirty 30 for breakfast. With or without little billy, whatever.
  3. How many times have you "quit"

    I try and do everything in steps and in line. get all the film on the vehicle, cut it all, shrink it all, then ill lay everything on my board then pop panels, clean glass, then do my installs but it either takes forever or something happens. Light gaps, creases.... I just run into stupid things non stop. dog hair or something else. some sort of learning curve struggle. Also I've tried to get more organized but still find myself looking for misplaced tools or running laps around the car for whatever reason.
  4. Business Name ideas

    IDK if the guy has an account on here but a shop 40 miles north of me (very popular) is named Ace of Shades and in my opinion that's probably one of the best names I've ever seen for a shop. Of course uses an ace of spades or just the spade symbol on all of his advertising and what not.
  5. How many times have you "quit"

    I think that's my whole problem... I get to stressed out trying to move fast and it just doesn't work out for me. I just see guys complain about it take 4 hours to do a car and im over here taking almost 8 on every car.
  6. Most annoying customers

    I've never got anyone that wants to hang out but if I had a dollar for everytime I heard "I already got the tint" And not once have I ever scored any of those jobs lol. " I'm only allowed to use film supplied from my distributor."
  7. Got hustle on Yelp

    If you can comment on there I would just explain what JH said that it meters differently and give a simple apology. That way if people see that review they'll see it was a misunderstanding. People like that are just out to cry and complain anyways.
  8. How many times have you almost threw in the towel on tinting or what certain situations have made you want to quit doing it? I haven't touched anything in 2 months because it was kicking my ass so bad. I was actually getting pretty damn good at it! but the simplest car would take me 8 hours to complete. I just cannot get faster at it.... I've tried nailing down an exact routine like people say. got pretty fast at doing things like shrinking roll ups and what not.... Yet still struggle. I personally struggle with getting stressed out and worked up but even on good days took forever. What almost made you guys quit? how long until you started getting faster? I just became an electrical apprentice so tinting will prob never be full time for me. But its been a bad ass good money making side hustle I'd rather not give up. Our "professional" shop in town is so horrible I get their old customers all the time because they've heard of my work. But is it worth it if it stresses you to the max and takes all day when I should be spending time with my family instead? Sorry to rant but who else has been here? I'm assuming almost everyone.
  9. Fun with scammers😂

    Hopefully I get some more texts from this number but so far this what’s happened lol. I get a text atleast once a week from this number and it says the same name and cars every time.

    it’s the wife’s dads car and he knows it’s gonna prob be a super challenge since I’ve never done one. So on the bright side no pressure at all. I however would really like to kick this things ass.
