  1. Been a while since I made the post but I’ve since tinted the car, saw it today, and there wasn’t a single spot on the lower matrix that wasn’t sticking to the dots, no “silvering” at all. Just used a heat gun from the outside and bulldozer after heating glass and good to go.
  2. Some Saturday fun. Now off to a bday party
  3. @Tint Slayer Do you have any recommendation as far as this method goes? Meaning do you have any sort of routine you follow? I’ve seen guys mention heating the glass and then using paper towel to run down the film but I didn’t know what works best. I’ve tried this before but always over heat to where it won’t stick or it’s never even across.
  4. By torching I mean using a torch or heat gun on the outside of the glass in order to get the film to stick to the dot matrix. Getting the glass warm in the matrix area from outside and then squeegee it down.
  5. Howdy y’all! It has been quite a while since I’ve posted hope everyone is doing good! Question: will be tinting a Chrysler 300 Saturday with the known lower matrix line. Do you guys typically torch this area from the outside and get it to stick the best you can and deal with best results possible or do something else to help it out? I’m a Dotrix guy but I don’t believe reducing visibility would be real awesome for my customer I have torched matrix areas before and it turned out OK at best. Unless if I’m just not doing it enough.
  6. I went thru about a whole bottle of the fusion solution now and it never seemed any different than Johnson’s baby shampoo. And you’re right def have to use a lot of it. I’ve heard quite a few people mention 7th Generation brand dish soap my wife buys it all the time but I’ve never tried it.
  7. Yeah when it comes to covering your ass or worrying about someone being embarrassed pretty sure I’ll cover my own self first.
  8. ^ Exaxtly. Which is why I was thinking only have them sign one if you found something and do not state specifics. Just like a general form that says there is damage to the vehicle and said customer is aware before performing service.
  9. That van windshield I tinted yesterday had rock chips all over it and had a crack in one spot. Customer was happy with my work and asked if I had noticed the small crack. Did not accuse me of anything but had asked if I saw it. keep in mind this vehicle was so dirty that I didn’t notice it when inspecting. Did notice the few rock chips though. I always do a a walk around and inspect before I tint but do you guys have any sort of waiver you have people sign? Maybe you find something wrong with a window, would you have them sign something acknowledging they’re aware of it? Just curious.
  10. Boi ain’t that van purdy? Thank you guys! I was sure it was double tape or something removable but you know how it goes. Cannot be too careful! Turned out great! Very clean cut job.
  11. You guys are right. I’m just super nervous about breaking ppls stuff lol. Thanks guys. I hope Autozone has it. Napa is the best place to get it where I’m located and they’re closed today
  12. Pretty sure that’s exactly what it is. And I’m sure it would be no problem to re attach after tinting is there any concern with putting on film? I don’t have any sticky tape may have to go get some. Or would you have customer re apply?
  13. Do you guys know if this can be removed? I figured out how to get the casing of it off but it revealed no black border. It looks like it’s glued onto the windshield anyone ever removed them or know how to re-attach them? Thank you!
  14. I started on junkyard car doors in my utility room at my house. Bought a 100ft roll of some cheap film did about 4 or 5 family cars. Watched more YouTube videos than I can think of and away I went. I won’t do anything I know I can’t tackle and I’ve prob got about 50 cars under my belt now. More than likely will attend a training course this coming summer. Just go for it but be smart.
  15. You make a good point. I could see that happening. I’ve always gotten super clean work this way. If it ever back fired on me I wouldn’t know it yet. But it makes sense.
