Hey guys, somewhat new to the forum and tinting industry. I have been tinting for a little over a year now and have caught on very quick and have worked very hard for where im at. I started doing a little tinting on the side and caught on quick so I decided to start up a business...which has kind of been a dream of mine. All is doing well so far, and im also being subbed out by a local stereo installation shop. Im very ambitious and am the type of guy that would do what I could to help a friend out. Ive been doing a lot of reading on PPF and would like to get into that soon....and have been wondering whos got the best class for that? Also want to get into residential/commercial but am scared about the whole glass breakage problems. Just wanting a few opinions on some stuff and saying hey to the community.

JUST DONT DO IT AND YOULL SLEEP AT NIGHT? IF YOUR ASKING THESE QUESTUIONS ABOUT GLASS BREAKAGE , THEN MY FRIEND YOUR GOING TO RUN INTO ALL KINDS OF TROUBLE AND ARE NOT EXPERIENCED ENOUGH IN FLAT GLASS. SORRY BRO BUT JUST BEING HONEST. TRY TO GET AT LEAST A YEAR OF TIME UNDER YOUR BELT BECAUSE HONESTLY EVEN A YEAR OF AUTO TINTING IS QUESTIONABLE AND JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN TINT A CAR, THERE MORE TO RUNNING A SUCCESSFULL TINT SHOP BUT GOOD LUCK BRO CHEERS

760EXECUTIVETINT - STOP WRITING IN ALL CAPS SO THAT PEOPLE CAN READ YOUR POSTS. I'VE READ SOME OF YOUR POSTS AND TEND TO THINK YOU NEED SOME MORE TIME UNDER YOUR BELT. 'SORRY BRO BUT JUST BEING HONEST.' :dunno

TTD - Sounds like you've got a good start at the local stereo shop. Hopefully your area isnt too whored out with installers - like the D. As far as FG goes, take some time and look into it. Reading posts on here is a good idea. Go through and look at people who've had windows break and what others have said as far as causes. As long as you take a look at the glass you will be tinting and recommend films that are all good according to F/G charts and films that your mfgr will warranty. manufacturers put out a lot of choices when it comes to FG, so put on your sales guy shoes. You have to get to know the customer, and understand their needs. Prioritize what they're looking for and recommend films based what fit their needs, and what will be safest for you. I started in auto and dabbled in FG after about a year of tinting occasionally for friends. Then I got busy with FG and because of the economy, im tending towards puttin dem papas on the cars now-a-days. Dont be scared about breaking glass, just understand why it happens and avoid the scenarios that cause it. Regardless of how cautious you are, sometimes it just happens because of a problem on the window peoples side. That's why there is a warranty :stop:dunno In 2 years of doing FG, I've had one window pop. :beer best of luck

Practice fg on your house and friends. Learn how to reverse roll, its a must!! I started out much like you. Try not to pick up any bad habits, I did, especially with PPF. I watched someone do it once and started doing it by myself. I'm good at it now but would never say im the best.

Just keep trying, using your vehicle, house, or get your friends to give you "donors" to practice on.
