    Bubbles reacted to no ma'am in Newbie wanting to practice. What tint can I buy online?   
    Express. Click link at top of page under film/inventory. Buy classic black in 25/50 ft lengths 40in and maybe 20in for doors. You can split 40, for car and some truck doors.

    It look good to me...don’t pick this guy apart because you want it closer to the edge...we charge additional $25 for shave top each glass.  For all the tinter here...we suppose to support each other and not tear another tinter apart. I personally don’t see anything wrong with it.

    Bubbles reacted to ErieTint in Huge Shoutout and Thanks   
    Just wanted to say thanks @OverLord for his huge HUGE help on a 1995 C4 Corvette back hatch yesterday.
     
    Burned up a couple pieces of (ceramic) film on my own and became super frustrated. Car has been sitting in my shop for a week while I mentally cooled down and debated how much more film I wanted to trash.
     
    David was nice enough to stop by the shop and lend me a hand. When I say lend I mean he drove well over an hour each way to school me on how to tint a 'Vette.
     
    I've not been doing this as long as a lot of you but days like yesterday give me hope. This truly is an industry of sharing knowledge and helping your fellow tinter. Hopefully I can put in as many successful years as some of the guys here.
     
    Appreciate the help man, more than you can imagine. Tell Ann thanks too for being patient with us. My fiancé gets antsy when its "guy time" because she knows the clock almost seems to stop.
     
    Next time we will have to catch up for something less work related, maybe when @jh812 is back in this neck of the woods.

    Thanks for the help guys. Im going to hit up some of my friends at work that have newer 4 door cars and see what happens. Ive tinted my car over 6 times now. Also tinted my wifes and sons car. I bought some SunTek. Super sweet tint.  Been picking up tools little by little and I have a good time tinting. Also Im a welder fabricator and work around 55 hours a week.

    Bubbles reacted to smookee408@yahoo.com in Opinion on these scratches after getting window tinted   
    Definitely the Tinter’s fault. If he’s a stand up guy he’ll replace the glass. It happens even to the best of us. I’ll admit it and I’ve replaced a customer glass because I’ve scratched it. Good thing I have a plotter now and that’ll never happen again.

    All, I wouldn't worry too much about him sending in the patterns. About a month ago I sent in the 2018 Nissan Titan Windshield with the sensor in it, 2019 Chevy Silverado windshield, and a "repair" pattern for the current Ram 1500 windshield that has never ever fit and is like 2" too long on the sides from the middle to the top corners .....sent that to Terrance at FVD. Called him now twice.. and no update to the patterns database....for any of them. Guy acts like I have caught him in the middle of watching a football game every time I call.   Esoterik,  it will be forever before it makes it out if at all and probably be past the time it will really serve you. Just sayin.

    Bubbles reacted to Tint Slayer in no light to cut back window?   
    On back glass, I cut with my right hand holding the knife and i also hold 2 or 3 fingers of my left hand alongside the blade with the left most finger at the glass edge, as an edge guide, and i keep that distance from the edge continuous as i cut that side. Other edge of glass my hands are reversed. The top cut is the easiest to practice it. Just mentioning it as an option for blind cutting.

    Bubbles reacted to jh812 in Back window package tray   
    Likely the reasoning on that one is because of a black rubber piece that sits right at the bottom. Lower the seats down and you'll find a few black plastic rivots that hold the deck in. Remove those, then pull the carpeted deck towards you. This will get that piece off the glass and give you enough room to work. Once done just push it straight back and reinstall clips.

    Try not to tuck to much film, especially at the bottom. Lay the film up a slide it down slowly and watch the top edge so you dont tuck too much. Had a focus yesterday that had a small tight spot in the middle. Would of been screwed if i tucked too much.
