    He is looking for a school, not some guy who thinks he's super special and wants everyone to know.

    LB55 reacted to CnCCustoms in Xpel.. great product, poor stock/customer service   
    No they don’t. From common knowledge it’s a garware product. But it’s definitely not the same color nor the same adhesive as global. The adhesive is actually stronger and faster setting. And the color has a more blue grey color across the board. Regardless who makes it. It’s a rock solid film

    The good will only do sub wrk...When we are slam...we sub out our ppf and tint...They ask for what they are worth and I pay it since we price our service right. Hope your retail or wholesale price can afford them with still making a healthy profit or raise your price.

    LB55 reacted to Old timer in My new goal   
    This being my 38th year installing film. The thought of retirement does it really excite me. 56 years old and I still love what I do. My new goal I think is the try to make it to 50 years installing film. If I can make it twelve more healthy years. Last year in a discussion with my wife she told me why don't I just slow down. Go to 5 days a week. I agreed! That was over a year ago. Still working 6 days a week. I love my work. This Saturday I'll do a 38 aquilia in the morning. Doing new 2019 Blazer on my way home.lol

    LB55 got a reaction from Tint Slayer in Who's using slip tape? Thought's?   
    I use slip tape on bulldozer and my hard card. I double layer the tape so it last longer. Currently with all the summer workload the tape last 1 week. I prep the tools with denatured alcohol prior to placing slip tape. Hope this helps

    Yes just pull the from the top toward the middle of the car. It’s held in by clips and a bungee cord so don’t pull to far. Once out take the cord off of the panel. There’s also another plastic retainer that’s made to keep the panel in place once the airbags deploy. That you need a 90 degree pick. It has four retaining clips two on top and two on the bottom. Just pull and pick the clips up to get it out of the sheet metal. Once out grab the panel and pull towards the front of the car. This will make the install a breeze. I usually tape all the modules to prevent slip from getting in as there a lot of slip with a glass this big. Use microfiber rope at the bottom of the glass to soak up excess moisture.
