    Automotive painter for 11+ years and window film installation on the side
  1. So recently I've been looking for an alternative cover instead of paying the name brand ones that we find from our distributors. Somehow I stumbled upon this one was just poor people that own dogs. It's water-resistant and universal and just slides at between the panel and the window. https://www.amazon.com/Kurgo-Car-Door-Cover-Guards/dp/B005MYY9YC?th=1&psc=1 Has anybody used for something like this I'm thinking about buying it and I know just placing a towel over the door is just fine but I kind of want it to be more professional-looking since I'm 100-percent mobile

    EWF slip-tac solution?

    Update: Got my first bottle and did a Ford Fusion rear window and rear side glasses and was actually pretty impressed with the solution. It was a lot slipperier than I thought it would be and really enjoyed using it, cleaned up really well and film tac not as fast as j&j but that could have been because I had a little bit more than recommended. It also seems like i had a cleaner and install than I normally do with j&j. Overall I'm going to continue using this now instead of my j&j, I feel like it has solved the problem with premature tac.

    EWF slip-tac solution?

    So I've been using Express Window Film for a little while now and love it I just noticed that they released a new split-tac solution. I ordered the 16oz bottle for 4.75$ and was curious if anyone else has tried their slip-tac solution? How did it compare the the other products like j&j (my current solution)?
  5. Hey wow thanks for all the help, this is a great community! But honestly I'm still not going touching a boat again just because of the time I put in and the waste. I needed up taking the windows out which helped dramatically. I'll take s picture if it next time I go out there. Looks good on the boat. I didn't charge him much at all, basically lost money on that one. I should have quoted a lot more! I'm pretty sure the owner tried cleaning one of the windows with ammonia based product. Last time I went out there I noticed part of the film looked like it boiled. Huh, he didn't say anything to me about it though.
  6. Is there anyone in Iowa that can sell me at 20% classic black roll film at least 30 plus inch width. if you don't want to sell the whole roll all I need is 12 feet please help me out
  7. Is there anyone in Iowa who has an extra row of they don't need at this moment of 20% classic black and at least 35 in and height. If you don't want to sell the whole roll I'll take just need 12 feet! Please get back to me if you do I'll pay obviously a little extra
  8. Thanks it with great but not I'm out of film!
  9. I keep getting the horse shoes
  10. B beThat's what I just did but maybe I need to work online shrinking and stretching process I keeping finger straight do you recommend starting from the right side from my picture and work your way to the left
  11. Thanks for the quick reply I really appreciate that I will give it a shot I think I have a pretty good idea what you're saying. I have been trimming to size all at once and then shrink. I'll try the 1/4 inch all around. Should I shrink it like a back window then as well with the h pattern? Look up the stretching process since I haven't done much of that
  12. Hey guys I seriously need some help I told this guy that I can do his boat I wasn't expecting it to be this difficult. I'll send pictures here in a minute since I'm on my way to it right now but my problem is the front glass with a sharp curve. I've tried just laying my film and cutting it and just applying it without any shrinking but there is shrinking needed. I've gone through too much feet of film already I am looking for any advice that would help me. I cannot take the window out. The glass that im tinting is pretty large and then becomes very short with curves. I'll upload some pictures I've just never done a boat before and didn't realize that way more difficult than the car.
