just a thought but does anyone else use vinyl application paper? slightly sticky paper used for vinyl application, put a sheet over the rear deck if its a bit fuzzy to keep contamination down, doesnt lift with the wet film during install if it touches, ive been doing it for years but dont think I have ever seen it mentioned on here

another tinter showed me a wee trick, he blew his heatgun over 'fluffy' bits, but I stress only very very lightly, as it'll singe the bits that usually fly up to the static that the tint has, any more heat than needed will burn, hard to describe but been doing it for a few years now. but I stress you dont go oover the whole rear deck usually just bits that are over fluffy if you get what I mean???

I do that, but I use the backing from my local printer friends waste I mask it into place using electrical tape so the whole deck is covered, it does lift eventually but by that time the tint is in place. If taped down shiny side up it works a treat. :lol2

h#ly sh#t fimmo (must be a fife thing!) sounds like 2 much risk 2 me, dont fancy it on those dodge things with the fuzzy white rear deck, slightest brown mark would show bigtime, they also dont like masking tape as it just pulls all the fuzz off when you remove it, not good! that app tape costs nothing and not sticky enought to risk any damage, most cars I dont use anything but theres a few that need a barrier
