Love or Hate Colour ??

Recommended Posts

Hi there ! Been tinting for many yrs with great great results and no customer complaints..I notice that there's been a trend in my area where people are asking for trendy colours..the decorative kind..ei green,orange,red,blue,etc.My Llumar distributer shy's me away from these films saying they are not intended for automotive and won't warranty them as such..should I keep turning down the business for these requests..have you guys had good results in heatshrinking these films..any come back to you with premature film failure? thanx for any imput from users of these films :)

The color films do not shrink as well at auto films. We have done alot of color film backed with silver to give it a metalic look for the ricers. I wouldn't pass the buisness up. As long as you explain to the customer it is not under warranty than there shouldn't be a problem. I always try to steer them away from color film though.

Since the crash washed away my last post on this subject, I post it again.

LLumar colors act similar to AT films, however they are intended for decorative or graphics uses. Check with your local laws as to the legalities of colors on cars other than bronze, smoke/grey/char and neutral metallic.

What brand of color films do you use Custom Effects? Also, can anyone suggest a mirror film manufacturer that makes a chrome automotive film? I have also been getting alot of requests for color, mirror, and fader films but have stayed away but now my competitors are beginning to offer it so I am giving it some thought.
