Im tired of fighting back windows when shrinking. Shouldnt this take me 5-10 min max? It seems like every BG i a have been doing is taking my like 30 and i keep having to use my hard card on the last 4 or so inches(top and bottom). I use dryer sheets and make an h pattern. I start shrinking in the corners; top-right, b-left, top left, b-right. I dont know why its kicken my azz in the corners from the start. It seems like it wants to be sharp fingers instead of rounder fingers. I have been using suntek and sungard if that makes any difference. I have been tinting for the past 4-5 yrs and have always had this issue. Any tips that can help me on my way and give me less headaches? ha

I would try shrinking with a glove, makes it a little easier. Whether you start on the side or in the middle, only shrink down about 3 inches at a time. Also, make sure your achor is not too hight or low. I sometimes will make my achor a tad higher than the middle, this makes most of the shrinking go to the bottom, where it easier for me and leave less to shrink at the top.

Oh yea, try mdogs soap method, it make it easier and you won't have to deal with the mess of toxic dryer sheets.

EDIT: After seeing 515s g6 dry shrink vid, get a good heat gun. I got a chicago, which isn't the best, but it beats the shiat out of wagnar. I hear my heatgun isn't hot enought to shrink EWF efficiently, I can't even imagine trying it with a wagnar.

i dont use powder, dryer sheets, soap..anything. just put a light mist of my slip solution on the back glass and wipe off with a towel....give it a sec, anchor, and continue. by doing this, u remove surface dirt, static charges, and put a ever so light soapy film on the glass that the tint gracfully floats on top of. no need for anything thing else. try it and you will never use any other method.
