if your referring to cleaning before u put the tint on,,I use a green pad on the back of a dishwashing sponge, works great!!

Yeah, I've been scrubing with the white scrub pads, but for some reason I'm still having minor contamination issues. I pull rear decks, scrub the windows, use hard card with paper towel around it to get hard to reach areas, squeege window 2 or more times and then wet with solution...................still having problems. I'm thinking I need a more abrasive product. What about an sos pad?

Reverse roll.

I'm flushing the glass correctly and paying close attention to my handling of the film. I tape off the headliner so I don't accidentally touch it..............I think I spend more time preping my vehicles than I do on the actual installs.

I had to redo an 02 sentra's rear glass 3 seperate times before I had billable results..........that's a lot of time consuming shrinking and expensive Bekaert film down the drain................................I don't know :please .......I've done approximetly 30 cars so far and the rear window seems to be my only weakness. The contamination is minor, but I'm a stikler for quality control and I won't let things leave my shop half-assed.
