Back pain?


Since I use paper towels, and tinting can cause back pain, I'm gonna call this a tip. :thumb

I keep a roll of paper towels up front with me while driving. Here's why.

While I'm driving, if my back feels like a good poppin', I grab a roll of

paper towels (still wrapped if possible) and slide it in behind my back,

perpendicular to my spine, up high first, just under shoulder blade level.

Then, with hands at 10 and 2, straight arm the steering wheel, with an extra push if necessary.

CRRAAACK! Lean forward a little, the roll (especially if still in wrapper) will slide down until

the next spot I want to service. Repeat.... CRRAAACK! :cooldot Repeat as necessary.

I like a good trip to the chiro, but rarely am done in time.

I found this to be very satisfying.

There. That's my first GOOD tip!

Try it tomorrow. You'll be glad you did! :beer

You old fart! :lock

Maybe 5 days a week in an Asssstro van has somethin to do with it! :dunno

Maybe. Although those vans are prob the best van on the planet, I do remember being quite uncomfortable driving one for more than 30 miles.

there going for big bucks still in major demand out here

Same here. I looked for a nice Astro for under $5k with 80k- miles (basically 03-05) and couldnt find one that wasnt a POS. I came across too many vans that were too good to be true for better than a year.

I settled for a 97 F150 with 102K on it with a camper top on it...with a big gas guzzling V8. BooYA!

OK I am a old fart so I'm going to try it. I hear the Scott blue towels are the best :thumb

Thanks for the tip

The best roll is whatever you have on hand! :dunno

Really the contour of the roll and the give from the "squeeze " of a full roll is

just right.

Ok. Ya want a tint tip? Put the heat gun cord over yer shoulder! :lol6

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.

 Many commonly used tools and techniques in use today are direct results of this site. Become a member and join us on the forum. It has grown to include members from all over the world, from consumers with questions, to new tinters, seasoned veterans, industry representatives and innovators.
