:) sl*t - I'm thinking like you. Have'nt used dyed in years. Gone through a couple boxes of AT 15 matching to factory. Friday got in a 40 incher of AT35. Guess I'm going back to my roots. Still hate handling it, but what a look! :)

Yeah, they make the ATR 20 and I've used lots of it to match. But the AT 15 matches best. I never used it before cause of the color change issue. Now both the AT and ATR have warranty coverage for the original purchaser against color change so take your pick!! :shock

Yeah skeeter, it does seem we have come full circle with dyed film now being color stable.

I remember the days National Metallizing, a division of Saxon Industries made a dyed film (Nunsun) that took forever to turn purple in Florida. Saw grey 35 on a car after six years and it still looked as grey as the day it was applied.

The good old days when film was in its infancy.

Very few have heard of Nunsun, but when they went belly up trying to sell a cadillac in a yugo market half the chemists supposedly migrated over to a well know film company in existance today.

Unfortunately for the industry, the rights to the film were lost through a deal over the company assets, so I've heard through the years.

What did survive, though, was the PS adhesive used back then. Today it can be found on a well known film company's auto series (second to none).

I don't date back as far as some do, thankfully, but I have been 'round the block with film a few times.
