Angled resi glass. Any advice?


Recommended Posts

I've got my first FG with angled windows for next week. 6' across bottom and 6' up one side, 2 1/2' on the other. almost a triangle. any advice on tackling this one. maybe no difference, but, just wondering. should I pre-cut before pulling the liner on this one? thanks in advance. happy tinting.

I'm too tired to understand how the windows look....

But, when I get a window - or several windows - where it helps to pre-cut, I'll do one normal... then get the liner from that piece and pretend it's really film... put it on the next window... cut to fit like I normally would... which then leaves me with a templet to use on the ground to rough cut the rest.

yeah that should be easy. the last time I had a window like that the point went down to like an inch.... very tight corner. So I did as I mentioned... used a liner to cut a pattern which worked very well.

just cut the piece 72x72. measure and mark the short vertical edge as you pull it from the filmhandler(or after you cut from the box). cut the excess triangle away and fit the bottom and the longest vertical edge, if possible. easy stuff.

precutting is good in this case

Indeeed precut would be fab... Cut the excess off leaving a slight overage for laying the film. Roll the film with the short height to the inside of the rolled precut. Reverse roll from large side to small side. Cut to fit and use your jedi squeegee weapons. This is how FB does it!
