    Heat shrink

    just the sides most of the time even though the film is fully shrunk, theres certain peanuts that appear. When I heat shrink with dryer sheets, I tack own the film in a H pattern. Any suggestions? not sure what causes this. Only happens on hatches for me and its getting really irritating.
  2. i had that happen the past few times with model 3 clients.. their chrome pieces sometimes have scratches but i dont go anywhere near their chrome, No knife on their vehicle as my shop has a plotter. One client the other day came asked me to take her tint off and refund because there were a few dust dots, I redid her tint 3 times, and it is on the same window. In the end she said she wants money back so she can have tint done at another tint shop. She msged me after a few days and showed a picture of melted rubber molding on her quarter window after the new tint job and her rear window wiper plastic cover piece missing. Another guy I redid his q50s twice because of a small line of dust in the rubber seals that causes the same line to keep popping up, eventually he asked if I refund the money in full but its up to him if he wants to remove the film or not.
  3. anyone know what brand has a more brown color to the film? Ive seen a few cars that have that 35% brown tint and it looks classy.
  4. what do you tell them if its over and over again, contamination on their windows, no matter how many times you cleaned it?
  5. can i grab one from you please? I live in vancouver canada, how much is shipping here?

    Heat shrink

    this question will be useful for OP as well. What is the best way to apply film and shrink on hatchbacks? ive been having issues lately with vw GTis and maz 3 hatchbacks. Im shrinking normally as I would on other cars but for some reason hatches are my weakness. I do the normal H pattern using dryer sheets. The ends of the windows and defrost lines just wont tack up!
  7. I use the thick felt cards for shrinking windows as well. Never used felt before for sweeps so I dont know what you mean by that so I want to learn. Thanks!
  8. all looks like beautiful work man. I am starting to get into commercial and residential films as well. Any tips to start off? How do I charge for pricing? Should I stick with one type of service or do both for autos and housing? which one would be more fluid for work? I have a shop now for auto but slow season will probably come during winter even though I do detailing/wraps and paint repairs as well.
  9. how much do you charge for something like that?
  10. will it scratch the windows or damage the defrost lines at all? do you clean it down again after with the scrub pad and water/soap? How long do I sand for until I know its good?
  11. shouldnt it be the username in the cd box and they should have emailed you the rest of the info
  12. not jacking thread but i've been getting micro bubbles in some of my jobs lately. I use a blue max. What is a more effective squeegee to use to remove maximum water?
  13. Hi guys, I need some help here. Its always been model 3s that I have trouble with tacking down the film on the back windows. They dont appear until a few hours after installation. Sometimes there are peanuts here and there but not as much today when i used #0000 steel wool and scrubby pad. I turned the defroster on to help but still not working. No matter how hard I push out the water bubbles with squeegee multiple times, they still come back. I use dry shrinking method . I've done other model 3s the same routine/procedures as I am now and they never had issues. Maybe it could be the film im using that's not sticky enough? I am using aswf and scorpion. I was using Avery and DUB R before but my supplier is out of stock. Do you guys mind posting your own step by step process beginning to end before tinting process? (how you clean windows, spray down, etc...) thank you! This is the second model 3 coming back for a fix this past two weeks. I am beginning to think I should stop accepting model 3s
