  1. That’s not good , I just had to turn someone down with a Lexus nx for the same reason . Just the 2 front windows
  2. No there is not ! But if your worried about it roll the window down and look for the edge of where the clear uv coating would be
  3. I’ve had this happen to me many times , even for the 2 front windows where the customer has it all off and claims it started peeling so I would redo it for free , when the customer obviously got a fix it ticket
  4. I tinted one of these last week . No felt needed . And I had no issues . The felt problem was more for older Mercedes . IMO . This is not a car to worry about .
  5. As soon as any one asks about tint brands all the global guys chime in ! Like free advertising ! Top brands imo are Llumar , Huper optic , Solargard . 3m crystalline !
  6. Also is it a fat scratch or a fine razor blade scratch? Also tinters cut the outline Around the outside of the window , so if the scratch was in the middle of the glass the tinter would have absolutely no reason to use a razor on the middle of the glass . Only around the edges of the glass . So I would say if it’s in the middle of the back window it’s not the tinter , but if it’s a side window it’s a different story .
  7. The cars with the bumpiest defroster lines get peanuts , like the Dodge Charger is really bad , old Lexus models get them bad, etc . It wastes a lot time getting them to stay down . I especially dislike when it’s the bottom defroster lines . Some cars are just made like crap .
  8. This is a bad idea . Tint is designed to stick to glass not to tint . Generally I tell other people who ask me that there is no warranty for tint sticking to tint
  9. I had the same thing happen on a Mercedes c300 it was like a metal lump on the defroster line and it would get so hot it melted the tint in that spot . Dealer said it was the tint . Until I took it off . And then the dealer paid to replace it on their brand new Mercedes. And of course I retinted it for free . Not their fault
  10. I just love the conversation . “ THat wasn’t on my car Before “ . Me “ YEs it was “ . I had One customer say the water spotting on the outside of the glass wasn’t there before . I was like you clearly park right next to sprinklers . 🤢
  11. Why wouldn’t you use the blue paper towels called shop towels at Home Depot or Lowe’s ? They work much better at absorbing water than the white ones ! I wouldn’t know if there was an issue here because I always buy blue !
  12. Those will not go away because they are air bubbles . Water bubbles evaporate . But air bubbles appear white in color . And stay forever until you squeegee them out well . This is why tinters go over the window several times .
  13. Detailers spray polyethylene on the doors to make them shiny at car washes and dealerships . So when it gets wet it looks like that . But a good cleaner will take the polyeurothane off . If you want it back on just buy armor all or something like it .

  15. I have a few different ones I’m using ! I start with a soft squeegee then follow with a hard squeegee with a metal handle ! I can’t remember the name ! I heard someone say one time they used a pin hole to drain the water ! Sounds like a bad idea ! But I might try it in a spot see how it works !
