Devil with bad attitude

BMW X5 2015

Recommended Posts

Lovely side windows, typical BMW gasket attachment but the front door hides a small screw under the little plastic cover plate where the door lock plunger goes up and down that should be removed.

 

Just take note carefully where it sits in the home position that this screw marries into.

 

Rear screen is a dog with an overhanging spoiler which doesn't make your day.

 

Big vehicle, lots of film, charge plentiiii.

I did one yesterday and found the back window to be difficult, i just cut it out on the demister line below the top, that helped, but heat shrinking...pull all the fingers to the bottom :)
The roll ups are still over 20" high, and I found that you can't over cut too much on the side seals, they just wont go in properly, tried and failed and had to cut smaller. Can't see any light but you can see where the tint stops on the back frame edge near the c pillar.

Customer was also buzzing around me pretty much the whole time. The look on his face as I pulled the top of the door trims back, he nearly crapped a chicken lol.

:lol

 

That's why customers are banned from my workshop. There is a perfectly comfortable waiting lounge for that.

Just explain that they cannot enter the workshop for OH&S reasons.

I'd like to see how to remove the spoiler on these.  I dry shrink them all....I cut the top against the spoiler and trim a tad off after dry shrinking for a nice top-edge and I leave an extra 1/8 of film overlapping the matrix on the bottom to compensate if the top comes up short.
