I first tried my hands in tinting back in 1983 and did a few friends cars here and there for the fun of it. As I was going to college, I was studying Management Information Systems and after a couple of years, I wanted to be a programmer but I lost interest before I finished my Bachelors so instead I decided to open my own business and have never looked back. I was about 18 when I tinted my first car but 23 when I opened my own business. I shouldn't really say I have only 16 years experience because if I started back when I was 18 and I am not 40, I have 22 years under my belt. How about everybody else?

I officially tinted a window when I was 11. inside a tint room back then we called it a LINT FREE room, although I was always taller than my same age friends, I fitted right there. my step dad worked at the tint shop we have now, after school I would go and hang out, help out, just like one guy around here said I was holding the tint, cleaning windows, prepping. wasnt till I was 14-15 that I did my first back glass. it was a Porsche 914 :thumb im kidding im kidding. it was a bmw 5 series it was easy. up until 99 I took some time off when I went off to college, when I was in college I was in san diego, I had to get part time job and school full time. my part time job wasnt helping me out at all, it wasnt for almost a year I dropped out of college and took over the business. ever since I been here. I rather get a head start in life than wait 4 years of college and do 4 more years of grad school and be deep in the whole with LOANs up my asscrack. so part of my decision of being a tinter has gone alright, but deep down inside I feel sort of bad of not continuing college. I plan to go back when there's time. hopefully.

Tinting has been great to me :woowoo
