Shrinking and installing sideways

Recommended Posts

I know some ppl have mentioned getting the most out of their film on roll ups by running and shrinking sideways. Is it good or bad to do the same on a bg or windshield? 

 

Ive tried to tint my windshield on my 14’ Ford Focus a few times and it’s about unbearable. However if I did it sideways no doubt in my mind it would be really easy. 

 

Anyone for or against doing it this way?

No offense and I mean no offense you really just need to work on shrinking. When I was learning windshields it did seem they were a little bit more of a struggle to me as well. I think though if you keep at it you'll get to where it's no big deal. Practice and cuss words makes perfect brotha.

I’ve found that the tint I use for windshields is thicker than for the sides. So it’s more of an art in shaping thicker tint . So what I’ve found is if you put the tint across the windshield , and you don’t trim the tint down at all and start shaping you will have better results than If you trim the tint down and then start shaping the tint .😉
