model 3 defrost lines trouble

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I need some help here. Its always been model 3s that I have trouble with tacking down the film on the back windows. They dont appear until a few hours after installation. Sometimes there are peanuts here and there but not as much today when i used #0000 steel wool and scrubby pad. I turned the defroster on to help but still not working. No matter how hard I push out the water bubbles with squeegee multiple times, they still come back. I use dry shrinking method . I've done other model 3s the same routine/procedures as I am now and they never had issues. Maybe it could be the film im using that's not sticky enough? I am using aswf and scorpion. I was using Avery and DUB R before but my supplier is out of stock. 


Do you guys mind posting your own step by step process beginning to end before tinting process? (how you clean windows, spray down, etc...) thank you!


This is the second model 3 coming back for a fix this past two weeks. I am beginning to think I should stop accepting model 3s

Steel won’t cut it with theses. I use 1500 grit and sand horizontally. 

will it scratch the windows or damage the defrost lines at all? do you clean it down again after with the scrub pad and water/soap? How long do I sand for until I know its good?
