Reverse roll?


dmiller403

Just like a reverse roll the importance is to have a clean glass on the outside to aviod contaminants. The video also seems to have a solid plastic rear deck and not the tightest rear glass. I put butcher paper wax side up. Over top of the rear deck to cover felt. Also covers any speakers that may be there. That would be good for avoiding contaminants with the TTC fold. Did that years ago but havent tried it recently. Stuck with the franky. Didnt know the technical name. If thats what it is. Haha

While rolling the liner is out, correct!

Or one could call it rolled to the inside :thumb

I roll mine liner in. Curled up in the roll. That way when I start the first foot before I bring it to the glass I can roll the liner around the roll and stick it to the back side of the tint so it peels itself as I roll. Easier than liner outwards

Reverse roll can be uncomfortable on some bg's especially 2-door cars. I use the TTC on all BGs but I do use the reverse roll on windshields, makes them a lot easier to do by yourself.

I'm mainly talking about windshields I always use ttc on the back glass but I didn't think it would work that good on windshields.

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.
