  1. That logo is hard to come off...we use paper towel and 91% ipa and it come off easier.
  2. 3M Ceramic IR shrink like butter...no special technique is needed to shape this film. You can not buy a precut kit and if you did....it is not 3M window film.

  4. Wow....I am in Love 😍. That look amazing
  5. Get these...they are the best...I bought 12 of them for myself and team because they are so good. Mike make it and his website is
  6. dammit....The new model 3 back glass now have thicker defroster line like dodge charger....It is on and off but so far over 20.....I even got call from other installer saying the same thing. So we wet sand one with 2000 grit sand paper and it scratch the glass but you can barely notice it. I change the sand paper to a 3M trizact and it work....No more peanuts.. We got 900 tesla delivery to Houston and my shop receiver a little over a hundred of them this month....SO GUYS FEEL THE DEFROSTER WITH YOUR HAND AND IF IT IS NOT RIGHT WET SAND IT WITH TRIZACT 2000-3000
  7. This film will turn a 20-30 year skill installer into an amateur.....I seen a 65 year old man that been doing this for over 40 years shake scare when it didn't work out....
  8. You are a brave man.....I been approve for another floor to do dual cloud 4-6k sq ft and they want to also add this to 4 more office on the other floor. I told my partner we not bidding or doing this film no more. He still want to give it a shot and I shot it down. I rather lose this 100k job then to do it again and make very little profit due to casper film. Long story short....They accepted the bid for the dual cloud without the casper.....Some lucky soul got the casper job. I wish whom ever it is good luck!!!! Everyone have been warn to stay away from this film!!!
  9. I can only give you one advice from me "built the relationship and the job is your" Tom sum it all up....I rarely bid on a job and when I do ....I win it all due to a relationship. Hell I was the 2nd highest bidder out of 6 bidder of a big job...I got it due to the relationship and he show me everyone bid. I was the lowest bidder after seeing the bid due to the other 4 guy forgot to includes some glass that was located back in the kitchen. After sitting down with him and explaining that, he trusted me enough to give me a 50% deposit.
  10. I highly recommend not doing the job...took on it 3x and didn’t learn my lesson...it will be the worst day of your life I promise you. The film is all scratched up when you receive it and you will scratch it more when installing it. There no scratch coat so from there you will get bitch at...It was my worst nightmare but had no choice to do it for 6k sq fr of dual cloud...lost on it but won on the dual cloud...next time I will pass on the job...I have talk to everyone that done it and no one ...NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE HAD ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY OR ANY TIPS AND TRICK ON THE FILM.
  11. Yes EV....we modified the front bumper pattern to hide the seam...it was trial and error but it ended up good. It was a good learn experience and put us in check. Will be taking on more Supra but will also charge accordingly when it come to this car!!!!
  12. This car is not for any intermediate installer...Car is very tricky and hood and bumper will kick your ass. The bumper is seam in so many places that client was not happy so we customized it to hide all the seam in the back. Client is also on the Supra forum so they are very educated on what is a quality install supposed to look like....Take your time and buy some time when this car come in is my advice.
  13. We have 3 retail location that does tint and 4 sign shop that give us lead for vehicle and commercial job. We also take care of 2 dealership but only for Crystalline and a few other high end service. We are very spoil with retail money and the profit that come with it. I am a firm believer of brick and mortar shop at a nice side of town.
  14. We use the 25% and it meter at 26%. We had stock the 35% of it is too light so got a sample of the 25% and it was the perfect color. Been using the 25% for 2 months now and love it...
  15. Never had a problem...once in a blue moon ...we will see a crack edge and tell client before we start. We have had one sunroof crack due to being install too closed to body/glass ...week later after tint but Tesla replace it on warranty and we just retint it on the house after....
  16. We bought a new glass and it got crack all over it just from us putting heat On it to shape it....It will break !!!! The glass is so thin and big that the heat will stress the glass and crack... We do over 20 Tesla Model 3 a week and can’t afford breaking any glass and ruin our reparation. Having the glass is our insurance....we also use it to leverage us as a shop!!!!
  17. Man...Saw this post too late...been at SEMA this whole week. Glad you got the glass but if you didn’t...I would steer you in the right direction to get it!!!
  18. Had tint, ppf, and vinyl training at my shop Automotive Film Specialists ....First 3M Pro shop in the nation!!!!! We offer private training by Mike Norng at 713-560-0669 follow us on ig or fb @autofilmspecialists @midtownmotortrends
  19. I’m old school...I can teach you to tint efficiency and teach you on almost every style...as far as business goes...I built a million dollar business but I did it in time which mean it took me over 8yrs for my business to gross over a million a year in sale...I Used up alot of my time learning because there was rarely anyone to teach me and made many mistakes...looking back, I wish someone was there to teach me all the tips and tricks...but I had to learn it the hard way.....I don’t just teach anyone, in-fact I turn alot of guys down due to being new, mobile, not being properly equipped....
  20. It is BS if you already know how to tint and went thru the expensive mistakes of doing so......I totally understand the 20k is a sticker shocker but I can make any shop very efficient and productive. I have visit many shop and seen hundreds of film installer....trust me less than 10% of shop/installer are doing it right. If you visit our facility and see my team work...you might say...I been doing it all wrong all these dam years!!!!
  21. We all warn you!!!! None of them last.....Period...
  22. 14 days training and 20k...You will tint like a pro when I am done with you!!!! Before you say that too expensive....No one in this country that can train you to tint in 2-4 days...it is all basic stuff and hopefully you got the common sense to learn the rest...your failure rate is 90% and you will make very expensive mistakes and you will make these mistakes for years...Not with me...also you will make money after I train you !!!!! And not stuck doing friends and family car for free until you learn....
  23. That not going to work...we make everything to support spray tank set up but we do not sell the tank...get it new and will last you a lifetime
  24. For the OP ....highly recommend you show the tint shop this...Any quality shop will r&r that with no questions ask. Maybe a little too much soap or didn’t lock the top before rolling up...it happen but give them a chance to fix it. ALSO BE NICE....IT WILL WORK
  25. It look good to me...don’t pick this guy apart because you want it closer to the edge...we charge additional $25 for shave top each glass. For all the tinter here...we suppose to support each other and not tear another tinter apart. I personally don’t see anything wrong with it.
