  1. I paid for rightlook online class $800...It is something I want to learn but I feel I am spreading myself thin...wish I learn this skill in my twenty.
  2. We are in the process of building another location so I have to opt out this year......I will be at SEMA.
  3. I might call you....be ready...All job are 5k sq ft at least.
  4. Am interested in this....one of our client is one of the largest interior space designer company in the US....They have been sending us around the country doing deco film. Please send me some info.
  5. You can’t afford any mistake at $60 for a too friendly discount....
  6. Look good to me....different adhesive dry differently. Ask the manufacturer which soap you should put in your slip. Use a orange crush and don’t put car outside while it is hot.
  7. You should practice on a 2 ply...in my opinion, you have to be good at the aim to install a 1 ply film. It is so thin that any mistake will crease the film.
  8. Did your installer use a soak rope or anything to soak up the slip?
  9. Reverse roll is the cleanest way but only if the car is clean and exterior glass that is shape is super clean. I can never get it right so I Frankenstein even on big glass. I do it a different way. I will fold on my peel board on big glass and work perfect. I also go another technique that alway work and that is peel the liner and spray and put it back on the film then I will come in to install it and pull the liner out with inside the car.
  10. Got my butt kick today doing some Tesla chrome delete...charge it right...I think $800 for M3 and $1200 for MS / MX. Side mirror have to be disassembled to do a quality install. Front and rear Emblem need to be painted.
  11. Business be dead for us if it wasn’t for european vehicle...they do their research and buy our high end service....
  12. That a good idea...model 3 chrome delete is cake...
  13. Use blue max for 7 yrs until I try orange crush...the orange crush is the shit..try it and you will never turn back
  14. This is all we do...I teach everyone that work with me to do this...NO MORE FINGER IF U CAN DO THIS.
  15. Once a year but we put add salt every few months. $300 a month...I use it to pressure wash the car before ppf and no water spot. If you did it without RO or DI system, the car would have wsterspot.
  16. This setup is not Afforable to any tinter or ppf installer unless you run a detailing department. There is another route call CR Spotless that will be the best for you. We pay Culligan monthly around $300 for this system....But it is worth over 10k if you were to buy it.
  17. Im in Houston and we put 2oz of tint slime to every gallon when it is hot and 1oz when it is cooler (which is rare). We only use the orange tint slim....the green one do not work in hot climate. I have seen the slim do some funny stuff to the adhesive to some film but not with 3M....As for J&J, we use 3oz per gallon when it is hot and we only buy the original and not the off brand.....For some reason the off brand do not work the same as the branded one. We use to have to have to clean our spray nozzle all the time but never had to do it since we got RO water. Everything slide better with RO (10K - 15K system) water than distill. You are welcome to come get 5 gallon a time of RO water and see for yourself...bring breakfast taco by the way and it is free. You also welcome to come get a few oz of orange slim....
  18. I can teach you to shrink this film in under 5 min for backglass and front windshield or your money back...Houston texas
  19. When you own a shop that do 7 figures in just tint and ppf...you will rethink think that statement....it is not worth it to you because you are not dedicated in what you do or your skill stop. I was only doing 3-6 ppf a month in 2005 when no one know what ppf is and almost gave up. I was doing Crystalline in late 2009, selling it for $500 and couldn’t sell it.... but I never gave up. Now I eat steak 🥩 almost everyday and drink heniken for lunch. It finally paid off after all these years....cheer 🍻
  20. I hoper he answer all your questions...just install 3M Crystalline and you will be good...also do the windshield on Outback, it is a big windshield and you will be happy.
  21. We do most bumper in 30 min because we remove all sensors, tow hook cover ect....
  22. I got a hundred tricks up my sleeve...My last trick is just to fuck it all up and tell the customer to replace the glass...
  23. Traveling to Atlanta GA from Houston to install some Deco dual cloud film we did for the HP building there.
  24. Dam...I need to raise my price too for removal....that shit is driving me crazy...
  25. That is the official....We still do tint for a few dealership in town when their tinter are on vacation....$400 guarantee daily or flag hour.....which ever is more.. It is a service that we provide for our dealership that sell our Crystalline but still do cheap in-house film.
