Preventing Peanuts

3 cars peanut free!!

 

Hate slowing down shrinking so came up with another solution.  Probond

 

Cleaning I recommend steel wool to clean the grid.  standard white scrubby was not cleaning the corrosion or oxidization off the lines or edges of lines.  Rember the vetts with the vertical lines?  Scrub them shinny or get peanuts and debris off the lines.

 

probond was wiped on sides and across lines.  yellow turbo to squeegee out.  softer turbo removes more water wrapping around the lines and not creasing the edge of film to lines. 

 

Hi Shady,

What is Probond and what type of steel wool are you using?

What I do is take a ss flat razor and scrape all the defroster off and then clean it real good cause you know the shaving and then stuck it. Guess what no peanuts.

lol and then the defroster will never work and will have a inconsistent look :facepalm2

according to some guy on facebook i think george nevarez says he cant tint cars that are prone to peanuts without any prepping, he claims its a secret and wont share :rollin

I've experienced nano ceramic films with tend to have very strong mounting adhesive to not have any peanuts afterwards.

Peanut free since last post.

000 steel wool,  like the old vetts with verticle lines, condensation/oxidization needs to be cleaned off. white scrubby misses the edges of the defrost lines due to thickness.  noted tiny contamination that came from the grid.

 

Probond  increases bond strength and speeds dry time.   high flash point, charger need to rewet towel for second half.   bonds film to old frits like fords gti no glue necessary.  bonds film to defrost lines!!!   shrink how ever you want.  shady back to 2min charger & 30 sec 300. 

 

yellow turbo to squeegee, love the prohandles but need a soft turbo to conform to the lines

 

900 degrees seems to be the key.  cheap, worn or low temp guns give less peanuts. 1200 degree gun running close to film gives more peanuts.  So low and slow is quicker then a hot gun or torch. 

 

Rapid tac 2 works great if you do get a peanut.   peel back, spray full strength soft squeegee  turn defrost on for 2 min.
