  1. Hi Is there any data available for rear windshield sizes of sedans? I don’t have enough 40” tint left and got a few appointments for Toyota sedans. Camry 2014. was wondering if 30” will be wide enough for rear windshield. cheers

    Heat shrink

    After finishing the shrink, just run hard card under the film Mayb an inch and peel off the film of glass and re shrink that one inch again. No fingers will appear again after application.
  3. Hi all I just started doing tinting, have done around 20 cars in last 3 months and I ouse Suntek carbon for starting as I am doing it really cheap(as a beginner)and people keep asking for discounts. 1. How to get even dot matrix after applying the tint, some places it’s silver and some places it sticks to the glass between dot matrix and look black.(I use blue max) 2. How to get to tight spots behind break light, I did Kia cerato the other day and it’s only like 3/4” gap between the glass and the deck. I didn’t cut out the film behind light and being lucky enough got a tiny bubble kept coming up on the edge near dot matrix, I kept trying with titan squeegee and heating glass from outside. Finally got it nearly fixed 99%. But after a lot of efforts and help from a spotter lol. 3. While doing centre window I normally keep extra film all around and heat shrink and then cut the final size with knife just in case if I burn any film while shrinking. But I noticed if I don’t cut all the window in one cut, wherever I start another cut a bubble on dot matrix appears like the one I mentioned above. Am I doing it wrong? Or should I cut the film to size and then heat shrink it. Could that start of cut be the reason for the bubbles near edge(I don’t have a plotter). Thanks for even reading it till the end. Any advice will be much appreciated.
  4. Hi all does heat shrinking gets hard as the darkness of tint goes up? 5% would be harder to heat shrink compared ton35% ?? was doing 5% today and got a couple creases and the hard card was feeling like it’s rubbing against the film. It was Suntek carbon 5%. cheers
