When to Cut

I was curious as to peoples preferences on when to do the final cuts. I have heard of people doing the final cut after installation on the glass and some prefer to do the final trim before installation by leaving the liner on and placing the rough cut film on the glass and when the final cut is done then applying the film on the glass. Which is the best way?

Never hear of doing a final cut before installing except on thick security film.

I pretty much reverse roll most everything. Bla bla, final trim, final squeegee and bump.

Wrapping a paper towel around a hard card, pushing toward the outer edges to remove any water to be absorbed by the paper towel. I'm sure you know the technique, but call it something else.

Depends on the window and its temperature (is it hot)...

French pains (pardon the pun) I precut (trim to fit) with liner attached no matter what film type.

Otherwise... lay up film, squeegee to within a couple inches of the frame or gasket, trim to fit, squeegee another time all the way to the frame or gasket and bump (aka dry out, finish out, wicking the edge, etc).

Or... lay up film, squeegee once vertically to lock film in place, trim to fit, lightly squeegee over entire film, then a second aggressive squeegee pass, and bump (best for me when glass is hot).
