  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. I have not yet found a windshield protection film worth installing. Hopefully find something at SEMA
  7. I do these pretty often but from what I can remember I don't think there is really anything special or difficult with them
  8. What you ordered will greatly alter the look and appearance from the outside.
  9. 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.
  10. We have this issue too sometimes. Going to try that. TOTW!
  11. If they are super super easy (with borders) sometimes I don't charge extra because they take minutes and the tint can be taken from scraps. I have only been adding $10, sometimes $20 to the job. I try not to mention it to the customer anymore because I feel like most customers because they think I'm crazy for counting it as a window and charging more.
  12. I use Global too and recommend it. It comes with a manufacturers limited lifetime warranty which means you can take it to any authorized dealer of the film
