  1. Tinting has changed back in the day like wayyyyy back they used to take out windows. It's not necessary anymore. I do know guys that do it. for example I recently had to do an 83 k6 and my friend wanted to pull out the window, we didn't and it turned out great. Techniques have changed and and it's absolutely not necessary with today's cars. So idk me personally I wouldn't need to do it knowing how to trim rubbers really help. Truly idk who would do it on any car from the 80s forward. I've done classic cars to and still didn't have to pull out a window. Sooooooooooo[emoji1745]
  2. Unfortunately it was the tinter who caused it. I do accords all day long and Ive noticed the glass on these cars sratch very easily. Sorry to hear

    Any tricks on reverse rolling windshields ???

    Oh and also make sure your peel board is clean what else......oh practice homie it'll come in time. But clean your fingers right before you install. Hope I kinda made sense

    Clean your fingers prior to peeling
  5. True you can tell if it's crystalline. 150 for the w.s. is cheap a.f. it's normally 300. I'm in California.

    300 not bad. It looks like it would of cost more

    Frankenstein or reverse roll ???

    Hmm let's be real Frankie is easier but the reverse is a def like an extra tool in the tool belt. Also imo any experienced tinter shouldn't get debris on the reverse.

    Frankenstein or reverse roll ???

    I guess it depends. Mobile or in shop?
  9. All I can say is it can be done in one piece. [emoji1280]️
  10. You obviously didn't read what I posted. And you pretty much proved my point, it's not worth it unless you own and even then it's not like your gonna do 30 cars a month out the gate that's why I said you have to save up. And how do you know I'm not dedicated or my skills aren't there, that was offensive.
  11. So if you're a tech why tint. Are you tinting to add some extra money. I don't think it's the same thing. The idea is mostly everyone here are ft tinters not side job or "whenever a car comes in tinter" Also what kinda of tech are you. A lube tech or mechanic? Most.... actuall all the techs and mechanics wouldn't do my job. They have zero respect for it. And as they told me it's a waste of time. I'm just wondering what your planning to do in a year or two, are you gonna be a full time tinter or a mechanic. You see unless you own a shop tinting is a dead end job where most employers don't pay benefits. And a typical work week is 60 hours. As a opposed to a job like mechanic where you do have benefits typical work week is 40 hours and anything over is o.t. I personally don't feel tint is worth it. I'm just stuck in this job and can't really do anything else. I want to become an owner but I gotta save some [emoji383] its really the only way at this point. Sorry for the long ass rant. I was just confused by your post. Thx

    NEW Tinter , need you help

    Dang this is sad. We really need to raise the standards on this forum. Things like this can't possibly be helping our industry.smh
  13. I think I'm getting screwed I only get paid my hourly plus 20 dollars a car. But also I make my own schedule work an avg of 25 hours a week no more than 32. I get vacay pay holiday pay sick pay and health benefits. Been there roughly 2 years and haven't made over 35k annually. I'm just putting what I've experienced out there.

    Recent tint done, quality issues

    Are you sure it's crystalline it doesnt look like It. Not sure how much you paid but it sounds like a typical tint shop. I'm surprised 3m gave them an account there set up doesnt sound pro. Next time research a bit more and do be afraid to say no if it looks or sounds sketchy.

    average amount of cars.

    Hmm. I'm moving to your spot. 4 cars is not enough. Unless you're getting a good % for each car. In my personal experience 5 is good. I personally can't do more than 5 full no windshield.
