Wet Check?

It's one of those things I hear people talk about all the time but never seen it stated anywhere and was never trained to do so where I worked. From reading posts, is it simply wetting the whole thing and seeing what part of the back glass lays down?

Wet check is preformed after the film is dry shrunk.

Pull film off glass wet the glass lay film down wrap squeegee in a paper towel, heat and push from center with squeegee.

It's kinda like re-shrinking but this time you are actually pushing the film with the squeegee/towel combo.

It has been explained before.

:) If you're a dry shrinker, when you get finished and aren't certain it's really gonna lay down and want to be absolutely sure that it will once you peel and install on the inside, then you lift it and spray under it and lay it down with a squeegee (or the plough made by Sphear is what I use) to check one last time that' it's nice and conformed to the glass. :thumb It's for us chickens. I'd rather be sure... so I don't have to fuss with it later jumping in and out of the back seat.

those of us who dry shrink, sometimes do a wet check after we're done shrinking. I don't need to, but it's good for people just starting out so they can see where they need to shrink more.

after you've done the shrink, spray water under the film and squeegee it down. if it's properly shrunk, it should look like this--
