  1. doesn't even make sense-what seal is broke that would cause a window motor not to work???
  2. i can see your point also and i understand it. this is the problem with our business: we are specialty and custom work but we do not get the respect because our work is not expensive enough. let me explain the way i look at it. let's say i get a new civic sedan in and i charge $300.00 for it and it takes 1.5 hrs. guy is unhappy because he finds a few dots and can't be reasoned with. i remove it, risk damaging defroster, spend more time than the application in removal, and give his money back. and i never did anything wrong-he's just an asshat and can't be satisfied. and i'm done and out all my money and time. down the road, jimmy's body shop does a paint job for $3500 and the same guy is unreasonable with him. what does he do? give back $3500 and remove the paint???? no. he tries to explain and then eventually tells the guy to go screw. we are not treated with respect because when it comes down to it, all we do is put big stickers on windows
  3. DO NOT GIVE MONEY BACK FOR A JOB DONE CORRECTLY! NEVER! you tell them to go get the tint done perfectly somewhere else. if they bring it back and YOU can't find a flaw, then give them the full price for the tint and the removal fee from the other shop. i guarantee you will not be paying any money out of pocket.
  4. been tinting for 30 years-never did a perfect car yet. you can find a flaw in every window if you want to get down and dirty and look for it if anyone says they can do a full car perfect, another tinter will find a flaw in it. it's the nature of the business. there is dust in the air all around us and that gets picked up before you can peel and set it in place. can't be done and i'm not a betting man, but i'll put money on that all day long. it's a no brainer.
  5. used to love those jobs-now i'm just too old and too FAT! too scared also
  6. yep-i'm here in lackawanna and we are still red pretty crazy situation
  7. going to the beach, you see the signs "no shirt, no shoes, no service" and no one says a thing about their freedoms being taken away when you go to the hospital to visit a loved one and the nurse says wear a mask when you go in the room to protect the sick-we do it now we have a major disease and the experts say "wear a mask" and this may save a life-and people flip the F out what are we coming to??
  8. i'm sure everyone is getting bombarded with forwards and reposts and retweets-maybe you seen this maybe not but i thought it was worth a watch btw-i'm not one to forward stuff. i'm not sure this is where we are at today, but it does show how serious something can be. i never realized how bad this was. you know, you hear numbers and it goes in one ear and out the other- but when you watch this, it brings home what the SF really was. it blew my mind how fast it spread and how quick people died.
  9. i think we should just listen to our great commander in chief-his white house posted https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/ quote "Strongly consider using face coverings while in public, and particularly when using mass transit." so if our incredible leader asks us to do this-shouldn't all of us patriotic Americans(who love him so much) follow his life-saving guidelines? after all-he has said how much he cares about us and only wants the best for us am i wrong???
  10. though i hate the masks too, i've talked to many people with masks on and haven't had a problem understanding one. what kind of masks are people wearing that you are talking to?
  11. personally i don't give a percentage. i just give the shop my price and tell them to charge on top of that. i'm not giving anyone a percentage of my money.
  12. boy am i glad i did what i did 2 years ago i ran my shop for close to 30 years-without taking into account supplies, the shop cost me about $3200.00 per month to run(rent, travel, utilities,etc) 2 years ago i paid off everything and built a new garage at my house and took my business there. except for my utility bills going up a bit, i run my shop for nothing except for tint supplies. raised my prices a bit to get rid of the garbage work. now i guess i'm considered a backyard tinter but i'll take that title with pleasure with our current situation.
  13. the problem is that we don't know what the fake news is since we have no way to fact check on our own-all of us are subject to listening to our media outlets and choosing what we deem as the truth basically, we believe what we want to believe depending on who we want to listen to and who we choose to believe. that's how it's always been and how it always will be.
