yeah any film that will lay down too the window and not fade out or turn purple within 10 to 15 yrs. for chracol. that is. But we all have different taste for film and the way it shrinks for each. So to each is own and what works and what looks good for someone is that.

If you have a acetelene torch setup in your shop, most brands will "shrink" no prob!! Add a little extra 3M spray adhesive around the edges with a Q-tip just before final squeegee. Be especially careful around the door-gaskets on Fords, because you can get "lint" before you first melt them with a torch!! If that happens, start over!! JUST KIDDING!!! Use the brand of your choice!! Everybody else does!! TR

Yeah, its cheaper than using propane too!! Most Fords look great after they burned abit!! Took me yrs to figure that out!! The bodystyle idea for the new Mustang came from a tint shop in Michigan using the "torch method", while shrinking window film on the entire glass area of a orig 2004 Crown Vic 4-dr!! Seems it had a fuel-leak somewhere around the gas-tank! After the Fire Dept got the fire out, the car was not only "tinted", they had a midsized 2-door with a great body-style too-boot!! Now you see em everywhere!!! TR

Thanks for input Guys.I was thinking about switching to Llumar AT because I got a sample roll in the mail from them and it shrunk much better than the Suntek Carbon, I tried it out on a 94 Civic hatch which is by far one of the worst out there.
