  1. Definitely installer. I would say a complete, unconscious rush job. Edge of front door, definitely from a rush file job. Obviously from the jagged edges up and around the top. that rear window even has a fine cut line down the side where the blade cut off the film prior to laying and shrinking. Audi and VW are known for soft glass. Maybe there was a lot of dust and debris settled on the film when he hard carded it for shrinking. I’ve seen a window or two over the years but never every window. I hope they make it right for you. You shouldn’t have to polishanything. That is just bad workmanship.
  2. You mentioned dry bubbles. Are you spraying the glass as well as the film? Sounds like you need more solution coverage. dry bubbles and milk lines mean you are not getting a uniform disbursement of the solution between the glass and the adhesive. let me know Cheers
  3. All I can say is WOW. dan, I am glad I wrapped my carbon fiber road bike myself.
  4. Is it inside or outside?, of the glass.
  5. Jersey is tough my friend. in the last four years, they have put an insane amount of restrictions on you. that is may I went south
  6. That is definitely now from an installer, even if it were Ray Charles. cut scratches would have been around the outside edge of the the glass where it is cut. keep in mind, any scratches on the interior area on the outside of glass is more pronounced when film is added to the inside. hope this helps PS, Chevy truck front doors are notorious for this. cheers
  7. I actually started my career in 82 and what I can say, most are much easier these day. If it was in your blood, it is still there my friend
  8. Heineken Mini Fridge.... Every time he opens the door he will think of you 😎
  9. Thank VW for putting their defroster lines so close together on your particular model, the pitch and angle of the rear glass will cause that when a film is applied. Cheers
  10. Sure it doesn’t look appealing right now, but as others have mentioned, leave it, let it dry, take your fingernail at that point and push towards the small fiber and be done with it. if you have them redo it, you may have three elsewhere. looks good from here. Cheers
  11. Wouldn’t even get out of bed
