  1. The XRPLUS has a blue hue, nothing like CIR, but I’d say it’s the most blue of the Xpel bunch. HP has a slight blue hue, but not so much that the average person would ever be able to notice it, it’s very very slight. Personally I think the regular XR line has the nicest black color. CS is very neutral as far as hues as well.
  2. The Xpel XR Films aren't close enough? I have used regular XR (not Plus) and been very happy with the match. CXP and possibly Carbon will be too green, and CIR too blue.

  4. Has anyone done one of these yet? If so any tips/tricks or things to look out for? Have one coming at 8:30am. Thanks! -Michael
  5. Olfa, bluemax, yellow contour, platinum smart card, small green turbo.
  6. Carbon has a better heat rejection though.
  7. Coolvetica, should be on
  8. I only did the front doors. But for those who remove panels there are screws the all the obvious places, plus one tricky one! It’s under the little piece of trim around the door lock at the top corner. A little pry bar can wiggle the trim out super easily. I believe they were all T20’s, like 7 screws per door no joke. Other than that bottom gasket pulls out no problem. Easy fronts to do.
  9. We use the platinum ones for everything. They last a long time. Typically we loose them before we have to replace them because of wear ha.
  10. We could not live without these things. My favorite tool. If the window is super gunky we'll use a blade, otherwise its all these things-
  11. Only because I’m having a custom display made I went out and bought both types of bulbs and made a test of them. I could definitely feel a heat difference in the films with a 50w halogen bulb, but it certainly wasn’t as dramatic as with the red 250w heat lamp bulb. For sales purposes showing the films performance I think were going with the red bulbs. Maybe once I get it all made up I’ll post a pic.
  12. I like the idea of using halogen bulbs, for the type of light they provide and also because of there small size. But my only concern is that they might not be powerful enough to adequately show a performance difference between a dyed film carbon film and ceramic film. Does anyone have both or prefer one over the other for this reason? Or do halogen bulbs throw enough light and heat to feel on your hand a clear difference?
  13. So I am going to be building my own heat lamp display here soon. I see some people use halogen bulbs and some people using the red heat lamp normal bulb. Could someone explain the difference to me? Which one is better to show how the film performs? Also if anyone has any pictures of there shops heat display set up that would be super helpful. Thanks! -Michael
