  1. I’ll drink to that Some awesome folks up here. Even met a handful of them and good friends with a couple. So cool I got to meet Teedubs and her family when they came to the states all the way from Australia.
  2. So frustrated with my suppliers. Been dealing with ST & Unique (Shade/Blinds) for over 10 years each. For some reason this year everything has gone off the rails.....I get it Covid ( ) but that’s an excuse and nothing more. Film deliveries went from 1-2 days max to 3-5 days. Had a few situations where 50’ was ordered AND marked on the box, open it up... less than 25’ on the roll. Still waiting on refund for the first time it happened. Been checking amounts on every roll and consistently being shorted 2‘ to 5’ on just about every roll. Been asking them to update new company info every time I order since February, still hasn’t been done. Asked them Multiple times to update film selections on their online ordering...still haven’t. Shade company consistently sending me incomplete repair parts, like clutches without the pull chains or completely different parts than what is on the original orders. Just had one today where I ordered new roller and fabric for a damaged Shade and they literally just send me raw fabric, an aluminum tube and a bottom rail as if I’m supposed to fabricate the shit myself. I’ve had more issues since February with each company than I’ve had in the last 10 years combined. What the hell is going on? It’s like me selling a job to someone and I show up, drop off a slack roll of film, bottle of J&J and a gallon of water.....say thanks for your business and bounce.
  3. Not sure if you mean the White Matte or Gradient film.... White Matte definitely doesn’t like creases or any stress in the corners. If you get any it will take a while to dry enough to lay it down. Usually a day or so, maybe an hour or two if it gets direct sun. I just try to roll it out smooth and use factory/straight cut edges as much as possible. Giving relief cuts in the corners when trimming really goes a long way to not stress the film so it lays flat. For the gradient/printed films I will precut exact sizes (enough to get in the frame a bit) and avoid cutting on the glass altogether. These films have a super sticky adhesive and don’t like to be slid around for placement. So use A LOT of slip/water and try to place it VERY close to where it needs to go because you will only have a couple seconds to slide it around before the adhesive will start tracking. Takes forever for those track marks to dry out, if at all.
  4. I feel like I’m watching desperate housewives whenever I watch the news. No thanks I’m good not knowing what’s going on.
  5. Man oh man, what a shit show this November is gonna be. Was thinking about quitting drinking, but now it seems quitting the news is gonna be healthier in the long run... Happy Friday
  6. Little bit of White Matte and Feather Gradient. Almost got thrown off the job because I removed my mask for a few minutes while in the sweltering hot/humid pool room by myself, in a hotel that has yet to open with maybe 3-4 people in the whole entire building. Fun times...
  7. Damn! Did the installer look like this by any chance?
  8. Actually I did feel it. Was sleeping in a bit and felt the bed rocking. Sat up thinking one of the kids was messing around but everyone was outside. Found out a little later there was an earthquake.
  9. I’m up in Asheville, so about 4 hours away. Plus I don’t do auto anymore. JH is over in New Bern, still a haul from Raleigh but he might know someone or have a recommendation for a shop that’s closer to you. Prob worth giving him a call if you can’t find anyone. Just google search Hardison Window Tinting. He does top notch work and is a great guy.
  10. Can’t believe it’s Friday already
  11. Western NC is a pretty spot. I know a couple of my competitors just lost their sub installer. Bet I could get ya in the door.
  12. Damn freeloaders keep showing up on this caulking job. Gotta keep doors to the van locked cause they will open doors to get your lunch. There are muddy bear prints on all the trucks door handles onsite.
