Curious........I'm sure many use both if not all methods, but wanted to see if there was a preferential trend in these techniques.

Those that lean one way, why is it you tend to choose one method more over the others?

Additional comments appreciated too.

Thanks

seriously? this can be found in MANY threads.... it is really a dead horse in a general sense.

Explain? Got a point, I'll delete thread.

Edit: (Lil Details) Ok just returned from 6 page search in this column and no one is actually asking question which gets used the MOST. Many threads on "how to" and the likes but think this is somewhat new content.

TD: If I'm wrong on this and have over looked something here in "search" and this is a worn out topic, then feel free to delete this. I'm not here water down the usefullness of this forum but to find answers to my curiosities. :lol

if you were to read farther, soap is by far the most popular one. No mess, no contamination, and the film stays down when you squeegee/hand it down.

I dry shrink every single back glass out there, except for SUVs that have smaller flatter windows, since wet is faster in that case.

I dry shrink every window, unless its flat like a new camaro or focus.. then reverse roll most of them in. when I shrink, I dont use anything...just mist the window, and wipe it down with a microfiber towel, let it dry ( a few seconds) anchor like normal and continue like normal...I dont use powder, soap,fabric sheets, ect...just spray and wipe clean.

I won't use anything on something that doesn't need a lot of shrinking, focus, fusion, accord, 3, etc. but when it's going to take a little extra work, I can't live without some soap

Wow, I would have never guessed more people dry shrink. I dont know if I do both close to 50/50 or not, but I put wet shrink. I use wax when dry shrinking.

don't you also work at a nissan dealer though? Most of their hatchback windows are relatively easy aren't they?
