the wet is the source of your grief,

the soap method is the shizzle (mdog's soap method)

better to burn up a few dozen feet of film now,

and get your technique down.

the front page has dry shrink, fabric sizer,wet, plexus, styles......

and search the archives for "mdog's soap method"

just hit the krylon, or the goat in my sig

you can still effectively shrink doing it wet....you can still run into the crease issues doing it doggie. with time, and practice they will go away.

in the mean time, use your card and pull a pocket of moisture underneath the crease, give it a quick hit of heat. with card parallel to the crease, knock it out.

there are several small creases on some fingers.  not talking bout the big arsed ones you get when you look at hottie walkin by and run card down wrong way.

Use a cotton glove and do it mdoggie style. It really is the best method IME. Then you can still look at the hotties walking by. :beer

why make it better???

if we stuck to that then we all would still be using strips and One piece back glass would not exist.......

take your time and maybe use low heat till you perfect your skillz.

I won't down the wet method

because of my respect for Tint & Rook.

it would take a nooB much longer IMHO to learn wet.

wet is an art form in itself, and BGs are tough enough.

but even I pull out a wet shrunk back glass every now & then

old skool rulz, whatever damn style you use
