Well guys I'm trying to address this problem.

When I first started I couldn't shrink for anything - most windows now are easier.

So I'm getting a good finish shrink wise etc, cutting has always been easy, filing etc.

Whats letting my standard of work down now is contamination.

I don't mind on side windows so much - I've low overheads so if its bad I'll just strip the first one back off and retint which tends to get rid of most of it - however doing that on a hard window or a back glass is uneconomical.

I'm using a smear free window cleaner with a non abrasive scourer, a window blade and then rinsing with soap solution.

But still getting lots of contam - any tips?

Blade the roll downs once window is clean flush rather than spraying window, flushing is much better than a simple spray. On back glass use a very fine wirewool and once again once window is clean flush rather than spraying you will prob find this will cut down on contam. :dunno

try not to touch anything with the film before puting it to glass

and try not to raise dust of the seats

getting in the car can contaminate the atmosfere in the car, more as the age of the car goes up

:dunno Spot on m8! Another tip is before you install the film lightly mist inside the car that will hold down most of the dust!

defo blade n flush

I use latex gloves (powder free) when transferring film onto glass then remove them one touched glass

mask up felt sides with 1" tape when felt is dry

dont sneeze onto glass :spit

on back glass I check with a small torch sumtimes for any nasties before final spray

I think where u are using to tint the windows can have a large effect on finish too. ideally a dust free room would be ideal but we dont all have such perfect conditions.

just keep the place as clean as you can and wet floors an walls if you can. but perfection is almost impossible in this game.

keep at it.

hey wales long time no see.
