This week's tip:

Wondering what to do with the waste from the last few feet of film on the roll that is not fit for glass, or the roll up/BG you just jacked up somehow and were going to ball up in a fit of rage? The waste at the top of the BG works great too.

Just save it for those rear decks that have 1 inch long fibers just itching to land in your otherwise perfect install.

I throw it on the table and make a general cut to the shape of the rear deck.

Climb in the car and just peel a few inches back, lay it up nice and tight with the unpeeled part where you want it and zip the rest of the liner away and WALA!

No fuss no muss and best of all no fuzz!.

I usually just use 3 to 5 inches of scrap.

You can use scraps to cover speakers to protect them or the whole rear deck if you need to. This works on fuzzy headliners and side panels too.

I do this on rear decks that are too much trouble to pull or the ones that wont come out because they are pinched by the BG.

If this has been covered somewhere else I apologise, I havent been here in a while.

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.
