  1. You never notice a scratch on glass till you put a black background on it...
  2. 1500 grit for me as well. Slow down and let the heat do the work for you. I get peanuts rarely, but when I do, I drink a dos equis.
  3. 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.
  4. Are you in Kentucky? If so, what part? I'm on the border and will be glad to teach you.

  6. Jh812 you were exactly who I wanted to respond. Thank you!
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. Haha I wasn't talking about his jorts.... Don't waste your money on the olfas. NT is better but not by much.
  10. I use qdp as well. My edges have been jacked up too.
  11. I use a stapler on the edge to hold them in place.
  12. 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...
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
