  1. I used suntek up until 6 years ago. Im still having failures to come back. Find a shop that uses global films and has a good reputation imo. Ive had suntek carbon fade and turn purple in 1 year.
  2. Are you in Kentucky? If so, what part? I'm on the border and will be glad to teach you.

  4. Jh812 you were exactly who I wanted to respond. Thank you!
  5. I've been using global films for several years now. For the past few months my distributor has been out of the films I need at least 50% of the time when I try to order. I'm not here to bash anyone or cause conflict. I'm located in Tennessee so who would you recommend me trying?
  6. Use just the tips of your fingers to split the fingers youre trying to shrink. Don't let the set pattern bind you up. Pick up the edge and dry the pattern out to let the corner float some. It will give you the extra room you need to finish the shrink.
  7. Haha I wasn't talking about his jorts.... Don't waste your money on the olfas. NT is better but not by much.
  8. I use qdp as well. My edges have been jacked up too.
  9. I use a stapler on the edge to hold them in place.
  10. Nice technique, but what I really want to know is, how did you get that damn shirt? I've been asking for one for 3 years...
  11. I sand them with 1000 grit 3m paper. I've never had a problem with scratching them. If you slow your shrink down, it allows the tint to shrink more evenly instead of concentrating the heat in a small area. This makes the shrink job smoother. I use the dry soap shrink method btw.
  12. I'd recommend staying away from anything from suntek. Global offers qdp in 15%. That should put you were you want to be if everything was removed and redone.
  13. I always take those out and charge accordingly. I also have enough sense to account for the torque area to prevent the twist. Tractors are in dusty fields all day and build up an immense amount of dust. No way can anyone tint one of those and have a professional install without glass removal imho unless it's a new unit.
  14. When I reverse roll, I'm always aware of where my fingers are holding the release liner as I lift it up to spray. I bend that area down and rinse it before applying the liner back to the tint. You wouldn't believe how many dead skin and dirt debris you can deposit with this one crucial step.
