  2. Nice Roach. Any tips on doing accurate relief cuts on the corners? Those types of windows with deep frames are a struggle for me.
  3. Thanks Roach! Very helpful advice. I made a huge mistake when I bidded the job and didn't get exact measurements. I just know that I need *roughly* a 12x12 pattern for each pane. I'm attempting to pre cut everything, but it's not going well. I have a 36" roll with a box slitter set up at 12" and 24", giving me three 12" cuts. I have yet to get a good straight edge from my middle piece. I think I will pick up a cutting mat of some sort and a good T-Square - thanks for the tip. I've done a few of these before and I found it impossible to get perfect cuts... I'm assuming a few imperfections are to be expected?
  4. Post some pictures when you're finished!
  5. Hi everyone, I have a few sets of these french doors with single panes to knock out this weekend. I'm not looking forward to it. Any tips? I sold ceramic for this job which i'm now regretting, due to how thick and difficult it is to work with. Any tips/tricks would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Yes of course. Why do you think it’s twice the price? For one the TSER is 50% more (5% VLT). It comes down to blocking more heat. If that’s not a concern go with the basic QDP.
  7. Looks awesome. I need to hit up Midtown and get going on my display.
  8. Morning guys. I'll take the XL please
  9. Sounds like I’m tinting in the wrong part of the country!
  10. Lol, I clearly haven’t seen the back of a 96 Prelude for a while. Last Prelude (not sure what year) I did was cake... But 96 must be “one of those”. OP - your mileage may vary!
  11. Prelude looks clean. Should be able to find a reputable tint shop that will get you dialed in with a good dyed film for $180 give or take.
  12. Last I heard Suntek was the film supplier for the Tint World chain.
  13. Anybody had issues with a windshield on a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee? Just booked one. I know the Cherokees around this year had issues with electronics and dashboards peeling up.
  14. It’s been said that auto tinters never retire... they just do flat glass [emoji4]
  15. Freak accident for sure! The razor had to fall perfect for it to do that kind of damage. Worst cut I’ve got from tinting is when I was playing around with shaving a frameless window. I thought it was a good idea to run my index finger across the top edge to see if my shave was below the beveled edge of the glass. Cut the s*** out of my finger - thing wouldn’t stop bleeding. Won’t make that mistake again!
