  1. New Body 2019 Ram 1500

    All is good, I haven’t had a chance to tint one of these back windows, this truck just came for matching fronts so I peeked at the rest. When I do get to do one, I’m going to do my best to bump it up far as I can and see what it looks like. At least there is a dot matrix there but still that may make things better or worse! I will try to see if that plastic piece can be moved at all to tuck but it sure didn’t feel or look like it would when I checked it out the first time.

    Here’s the top edge of a rear back sliding glass. As stated above, absolutely no room to tuck or overlap the film. The small spot you may see in these pics looks like a boarder but it’s just a reflection off the plastic piece.
  3. Fusion hybrid, blue max, or orange crush???

    I started with blue max, went to the orange crush, then tried the hybrid, now I only use the orange crush. First pass antske it light then I do a second and apply more pressure. I love it.
  4. Blue max tools on ebay ???

    Orange crush! I’ve tried the blue max when I started, didn’t like it. Then it tried the fusion hybrid and it was pretty good but I like the cropped style, so I stuck with the orange crush and I love it. Removes all the moisture I need it to just by pressing a tad harder with it on my second passes.
  5. Greasy film on defroster lines ???

    SOS pads for rear windows/defrosters. They would work just as well for any window that has a greasy film. A blue scotch pad would work as well I’m sure.
  6. Using cleaning and a slip solution???

    I use fusion all type slip solution and usually just wipe the windows once I make the final pass. Sometimes I may need to mist it first but it works. Beats the bell out of buying a bunch of cans of cleaner as well.
  7. Slip Solution

    Sorry for the confusion haha, when I said I lay the tint with the doors closed I meant my garage doors, not the vehicles. Haha sorry once again for the confusion, I actually never thought about doing it that way though if I was mobile but it’s a good idea in theory.
  8. Soap chunks??

    I have had good luck with 1oz. Fusion to a gallon of distilled water. Just measure it out, dump it in and shake it up good. I then use that gallon jug all day for my spray bottles.
  9. Soap chunks??

    But...are they really all that dirty with all the extra soap that was in them!?😂😂😂 nah but for real I did learn that it only take a few extra minutes to empty them out at the end of the day and rinse every few days. I have always used distilled water and I’m currently switching from Johnson’s baby shampoo to fusion all type. I really like that stuff since I got my ratio figured out and in that case, more isn’t always better for providing more slip.
  10. Soap chunks??

    Yes! Definitely make sure you rinse out your bottles every few days with hot water. I used to let them sit for days and days on end sometimes, use and refill over and over and one day I looked in the bottom and saw a thick coating on the bottom. When you pull the sprayer straw out of the bottle, feel it. I bet you can feel a waxy/texture to it. Basically the same thing is happening on the bottom of the bottle. Sometimes hot water isn’t enough to get rid of it, I had about 6 bottles I had to fill up a quarter of the way and add some JOY dish soap and let soak for 2 days till it broke it down.
  11. Slip Solution

    Well I lowered my ratio of fusion all type down to 1oz./gal. And it did seem to help honestly. Maybe I had too much? It was a touch hotter the other day but I lay the film with the doors shut and only let one or two windows open. I’ll keep using this fusion stuff since it would awesome today haha!
  12. Slip Solution

    Thank you for the info and I kinda thought the same thing so I’ll go ahead and give it a shot tomorrow! Thanks again!!
  13. Slip Solution

    I used 3oz/gallon for the fusion stuff and it still didn’t seem to have enough slip.
  14. Slip Solution

    I have been using Johnson baby shampoo and just tried fusion solution the other day as well. I have better luck and results with the shampoo. Plus it’s cheaper, easier to get and I know it works. Anyways I was using 3 oz. to a gallon, I added a tad more if I needed it but I just didn’t care for it.
  15. Tint safe window cleaner for Tinted windows

    Spray away! I used to use stoners but switched to spray away and haven’t looked back.
