  1. don't get discouraged. avery is allergic to heat. I can never do a charger BG without burning it. The craftsman heat gun i normally use does get hotter than most guns though. anyway leave all the excess film and do the h pattern. use baby powder for maximum float on the BG (normally ppl use dryer sheets or bar soap). hold and stretch the end starting in the center and start shrking in large regions with long horzontal passes where ever you are heating the other hand should be pulling on the region. the film will lay do that for top and bottom and cut and wet check like normal. good luck!
  2. some shops take up to a week and that is with a full man crew
  3. bar keepers friend a little water and microfiber. rubs them right out.
  4. you have to come up with scenarios that would make it plausible. there are scratches on glass that can't be seen until they are tinted. I see it all the time and even worry I will be blamed. the majority of the cutting i do is on the peel board to avoid any problems that relate to this.
  5. did the customer expect zero contamination with that price?
  6. I used the ceramic 40 on my dads cobalt 9 years ago. it still looks good. no adhesive failure. If i ever decided to switch over geoshield would be an option i would look into.
  7. nice! how does it compare to xpel and the other big names? I'm undecided between madico and global.
  8. shouldn't be too bad. They have a 10 year warranty on it which leads me to believe its a stout film. have you had any samples of it? wondering how much orange peel it has.
  9. the closest i've come to being able to see bubbles is using a daylight spectrum flood lamp on a light bulb holder (the ones with a single aluminum hood shielding). then angling and adjusting it with one hand to be able to inspect the entire glass. i had to do this to accommodate tint jobs late into the night.
  10. Is it time to hang up the pouch? I think i've seen it all at this point. From issues with water frying pricey electronics on door panel switches ( new range rovers), frying computers on rear decks (new Mercedes), and faulty brittle defroster lines (I've seen it on jeeps, chrysler, and Buick), the delicate U.V. coating on the newer Lexus and Toyotas, and now your telling me that plastic can scratch glass?! it seems like doing cars is starting to be a liability, regardless of safety measures. To the OP, thanks for posting this. will keep an eye out for these Audis.
  11. I normally do it in 3 pieces with the two sides ran vertically like you stated and it does make shrinking a breeze.
