Do you cut both doors at once?

Yes I do. I'm not going to explain step by step how I tint and say, "what am I doing wrong". In general what is a step u do that speeds things up. I shouldn't say major tip like I did at first. Any tip at all. Like this...

If u use spray bottles, use 2 of them. Keep one at the cutting board, and one at the car so u don't have to walk back and fourth to get it.

You da man tintmanlibby!!! You da Man!! Like your style! I bet someone will say something about a plotter!!!! Hecks no!!! You have to wait forever for it to cut the patterns....then you have to hand cut through the second layer....BS if you ask me! Hand cut all the time! Way faster than a plotter! Cheaper than a plotter! Better than a plotter! I am saying this about tint....not ppf....cause I have never done ppf.

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.
