  1. i guess since everyone is off, they figure it's a good time to get windows done. phone has been ringing off the hook. but i am closed down and just take numbers to call back when things ease up. i can't believe, when we are supposed to be keeping away from people, that so many people feel the need to leave their homes, and try to interact with someone just to have some film applied.
  2. baking today-i got a nice setup in part of my shop
  3. when i tell someone what the tint law is in my state, i hate when they then tell me what it is because they think they know more than i do even though i have done this every day for around 30 years when a professional at infectious disease tells me something about infectious disease, i think i'm going to listen instead of being an asshat like my customer
  4. damn democratic hoax-how did they come up with this hoax? we need trump to uncover this and drain it from the swamp
  5. "A higher price tag gives the customer perceived value in your service." whether or not it's true, customers will think you are better if your price is higher i feel people will question you less you won't mind spending that extra time to get the job done right a repair is easier to stomach when you get paid good the first time you tint the vehicle also, you are not in business to tint someones vehicle. you are in business to MAKE MONEY. tinting is just the way to do it. so make the most you can without being too greedy. it's very easy to drop prices if you need to, but, like was said before, difficult to go up.

  7. i personally don't hate the sunstrips. minimum $50 and always have the tint ready i guess i really hate anything that takes time and too much mental energy like the 79 vette rear i just did for a friend and of course the audi a6
  8. was thinking the same thing these situations are posted here all the time and even with both sides of the story, we still don't know who is to blame and no one here can make that call. i see a bunch of scenarios here 1) car was scratched when it went in 2) shop scratched car on accident and knows about it and is denying it 3) car got scratched at shop and no one even realized it 4) customer got a scratch after leaving 5) someone walked by car while it sat in shops parking lot and scratched it on accident 6) customer stops for gas on the way to shop and it gets scratched 7) probably others you can come up with..... i've accidentally damaged cars in my shop before(after almost 30 years, you're gonna have a couple) and i've paid to get them fixed. but i've also been blamed for damage i didn't do and i will NEVER bend to paying for that. i, for one, am not a believer that the customer is always right because too many people take advantage of a situation.
  9. Taco says 14 cars average-gotta believe him if he says it maybe he does 7 full cars and a couple suvs and a couple trucks to round it out to 14
  10. ....AND he doesn't even want any help.
  11. impressive is not the word-it's way beyond impressive. i'm just trying to wrap my head around the thought of doing 14 cars on average a day-holy crap 14 hour day?? pulling cars in and out, cutting, cleaning, shrinking, applying. and no comebacks!!!!! DAMN!!!! hands down-best i've ever heard of i've never wanted to meet a fellow tinter, but you, sir, are someone who i would like to meet and also learn from
  12. yep-no problem there at all some people expect it to look like factory tinted glass-got to remember it is aftermarket and you can't expect perfection-just a really good job(which that is)
  13. yep-that black is original-i've done a bunch of them years ago when i was just starting and that stuff will just keep flaking gotta pass on those-too frustrating
  14. no, not for tint install great soap for everyday use
