  1. Definitely going to have to remove the film and redo it. Like Dynamic said, you can take a heat gun and work some of that out but it wont take care of all of it. Better off starting new!
  2. I went to it and it was very corporate, not many tinters more so business partners and such of Madico. They created a new warehouse and moved from their old location to the new one.
  3. We have been using Madico's film since the 80's and Wincos definitely has a blue hue to it. If it is green/black you're definitely not getting Wincos film..

  5. Like DynamicATL said, you will never get the same match on tint as your factory. That's the major problem for consumers when wanting to match the rear portion, it never looks 100% like the factory tinted glass does.
  6. I personally love using Madico's Black Pearl Nano-Ceramic for my 5% use, have it on my personal car as well!
  7. Every Model 3 has the same back window, the Model S is the one with a smaller back window. I personally upcharge that back window due to the size and time
  8. This happened to me once before on a vehicles driver window. The film wouldn't stick either and came to find out from the customer they used a type of RAIN-X solution onto their glass, why I'll never know but that's what my issue was lol
  9. To literally answer your question its NEVER going to be safe to put anything onto the film. The fact you said its in the high 90s tells us that whatever you use to mount onto the windshield is going to adhere to the film which can damage it down the road. You sound like you're going to install it regardless, just don't be surprised if it damages the film which most likely isn't covered by warranty.
  10. I personally have seen MANY new vehicles come from the dealer with flaws, and these are vehicles without even a few hundred miles on them. Unfortunately most consumers don't start to notice imperfections until after they have had some type of after market work done to it, in our case being window tinting.
  11. I have Madico's nano-ceramic Black Pearl 5% on my sides and back window with Black Pearl 75% on the front windshield and love it! Wish i would have done 50% on the front windshield but the install is perfect so don't want to redo until I have to 😊
  12. This is our website that we are continuously trying to improve on! Been in business for over 30+ years now and family owned and operated!
  13. I always put 70% on my windshields only due to the fact I tint the sides and back windows dark, so I have plenty of privacy. Not to mention I still get 18% glare reduction from my 70% which is plenty for me. No reason to go darker for me personally unless you're not trying to be seen for whatever reason, or you legitimately have a medical reason to go darker.
  14. More than likely it's some contamination that is occurring due to dirt or even some carpet fibers, depending on the vehicle. Always be careful when squeeging the bottom portion of the back window, cause if you drag your tool incorrectly and have your tool dragging along the carpet, you could be causing little particles to resurface in the air and back onto the glass. Never hurts to clean twice!
  15. We know someone who has been tinting as a side job for extra cash. He recently installed 35% on a younger guys windshield. Well unfortunately the young man did not see a girl at night time who was walking, he hit her and killed her. I don't care how good your eyes are, or how you adjust them to fit something that isn't needed. When you start going to such dark percentages, you are risking not only your safety, but the safety and LIVES of others.
