  1. Johnson had too many failures for me. I saw the light and made the switch.
  2. We use Global QDP, HP and QDPC and are all great films. I used SG maybe 15-19 years ago so I can't really compare what SG is now but from what I read on here, not too many fans of SG. Global feels much thicker than most other films that I have dealt with so there was a short learning curve for me to get used to it. But overall great film with no complaints and great distributors.

  4. You cannot buy 3M, Llumar, Sungard and many other major brands unless you become an authorized dealer/installer but to do that you need to become a legit business entity. Even then you need to be vetted and approved depending on the brand/manufacturer as their criteria will vary. People who are selling those name brands on ebay for the most part aren't really supposed to be doing that and sometimes you're not even getting the actual brand. It's happened to me before.
  5. Do you have a business? You can find distributors of film directly from the manufacturers website. I did an internet search for "window tint distributor Philippines" and several name brand companies came up like 3M, Llumar, Huper Optik, etc.
  6. I use a Mactac to shrink. While installing I constantly wipe down my squeegee in case it pics up a piece of dirt so it doesn't scratch the tint.
  7. Definitely major difference in performance, cost, and especially in the shrink. QDP is 1.5 mil vs QDPC being 2 mil. Takes extra time, patience and skill to shrink
  8. I don't do too many of the Taurus model but I think I did one in the last year. No issues with that one or any other Ford so far
  9. I remember I used a sample roll of a cheap film a company sent me (I won't name names) and a customer came in wanting the cheapest job that I could give them. I said hey, I can use this sample roll (no warranty) for X amount. I used it and it has somewhat of what you are describing. They did disappear a few weeks later as the tint dried as I followed up with the customer and asked.
  10. I have not yet found a windshield protection film worth installing. Hopefully find something at SEMA
  11. I do these pretty often but from what I can remember I don't think there is really anything special or difficult with them
  12. What you ordered will greatly alter the look and appearance from the outside.
  13. Express is the distributor for certain areas. You can use their brand window film or order Global from them from the specific website. Call or email them and tell them you want to be a Global Window Films Dealer and they will send you a packet. It does matter which website you order from and location matters as well. You can also call in order or email them. Web orders over $500 get free shipping so it would be best to email or order from the website.
