    I really enjoy the quick satisfaction of a job well done when tinting a car. Teaching new window tinters gives me a great deal of satisfaction but takes longer!!!!!!! We only live once that we can remember. My favorite hobby is being a life long learner!

  1. Dang, hate to hear they are gone. We will probably see a few more re-boxers disappear in the near future with the boom in numbers / names the last couple years.
  2. That’s what I was gonna ask I think most times when people say Global is failing they are using a Garware product but not Global.
  3. @Stewy if you decide to go Global I can get you the 10% discount from training. You going to be at SEMA this year?
  4. I’ve used the six inch unger for close to 40 years. Make the black blade so it hangs over the end of the channel about 3/8 inch so you don’t possibly scratch the top of some door panels. The Fusion Soft Pink Clean in a handee handle is great also if you don’t like the unger.
  5. Todd, I haven’t been on Tintdude lately and saw this post. I’m in Portland (Beaverton) if you’re up this way stop at Alexias window tinting and say hello! cheers
  6. I was reading last week where a trainer from XPEL said to squeegee the window except matrix along top, leaving solution under matrix. Then to use a torch to “boil” the application solution before hard carding the area. I haven’t tried this.... anyone use this method? I’m afraid of melting the film. cheers
  7. hello again my tintdude friends! I continue to wonder why I get stuck on fakebook instead of here I had cataracts removed 3 weeks ago on one eye and last week the other. Told the Dr I wanted to make sure I could see up close so implanted lens where I can see great up to 36 inches but can't see beans any further till I get new glasses in a couple weeks. Wishing I had the distance lens instead. #birdboxtinting
  8. Factory tint on autos is a electrical process that only the big manifacturs can afford. It's kinda a deep dip in solution simular to galvanizing metal. I have tinted in around 12-14 countries and saw windows in either Romania or Ukraine that look like a bad job done in silver film that a local company was doing. Pretty sure it was the same process but with worn-out equipment! Cheers
  9. I thought they went out of business years ago¿ I don't remember the problems they had but it wasn't a good thing.
  10. Always recommend to cover the panels. Edge film has some really great reusable covers or home depo sells pre-mask shark skin that is pretty reasonable. When you still get part of the cloth wet you might wet the entire area so when it drys you don't have the stain line. Just saying...works! Cheers
  11. mine is simular to what @Tint Eastwood discribes except I have mine with glass mounted on a roll around with glass on each side. I set my peal glass in the guttering capped on each end and have several sponges in the gutter that wick the water up and evaporation keeps it control. Cheers Stan
  12. Merry Christmas Rick ♡ to you and your family.
  13. Did this tour bus for Toyota Motor sports a couple days ago. Still lots of work to be done on it before the end of year but my part is done. Broke my toe the day before the job so it was a challenge! Merry Christmas all♡ Cheers
  14. Yes, four #0000 wet...two or three times. I have seen people back blade up but I'm scared I have heard lots of good things about Sun Distribution about the new stuff♡ Cheers mang
