A word of advice... window visors, bottom loading


Recommended Posts

If you are a new inexperienced tinter  avoid window visors, either tell them to take it off or send them away. I've tinted cars with window visors in the past but recently I had a car I literally could not finish (luckily customer is really nice)

 I basically wasted his whole day. Window visors make hand cutting very hard on a new tinting with the shifting and the tint sticking to the visor and not being able to shrink the film on the outside of the glass. FYI never use the heat gun on the inside of the window it takes long and can potentially damge panels and seals. And ALWAYS BOTTOM LOAD, just do it

Use a liner and a marker to draw a pattern, lay your pattern over your film on a peel board/glass. Cut and install. Shrink it if you have to. I use less soap and streach the slack out of it.

Plotter cut patterns solve this type issue.

 

Hand-cut requires innovated thinking to get through to an end product; a nicely cut pattern.

I usually do what needs be done with the bottom few inches, anchor the mid-line horizontally, lift the bottom edge slightly, and roll the glass down to the anchor point to get the micro-edge cut. The remaining side cut(s) can be done by ruler on the peel board. :dunno
