Tinter cut into rubber seals


Recommended Posts

I’m trying to keep my cool but after noticing the poor alignment this shop did on my ppf, I’m finding where they quite literally cut into my rubber trim. I saw them redoing the driver when I came to pick it up so I know they aren’t using pre cuts. 
 

is this normal? Or do I have a right to be angry? This car only has 2k miles

The rubber cut is on the inside not outside so it is odd to be the Tinter that did that.  Lots of frameless cars are bad about the glass going too high and tearing just like this...

If the slice wasn't so perfectly clean and on a brand new car I'd say you're right as I've seen it plenty of times as well. My guess is it was done while trimming the top edges

I'll bet a dollar it was done when cleaning with a single edge.

 

Plains is correct. That damage shouldn't be there on a new car.

Thanks for the input guys! car is a 2018 but only has 2k miles, I don’t think it’s old enough to warrant those tears. They look strangely clean. Taking to the shop Monday, he said they use a plotter and don’t cut on car….but like stated I thought they clean up with a blade?
