  1. Does this car need felt on the doors. I haven't tinted one yet. Also Is there anything to watch out for. Electronics etc.........
  2. Had a customer that came in with an 2001 jeep Cherokee, the rear window has the black ceramic, the 2 rear side windows did not. They were full of crust and dirt and went really deep in, Theres no way you trimming rubber out to hide the edge of the tint. I told the customer there will not be edge to edge fit and may have some degree of contamination in them. Well he wasn't having that, The only way to tint those 2 windows perfect is to pull them glass out with 20yr old rubber and remove the interior around the window, also the paint had pealing problems. I and he passed on tinting the car then. He was expecting that I can tint those 2 windows with no gaps and no dirt. Are these type of jobs even worth it. He was also supposed to send us a pictures of those windows before he brought it in. What a waste of an appointment slot today. He was a nice guy though.
  3. Ive been getting back warranties on rear windows in 2-3 years using rayno s-5. This is not acceptable especially when rayno makes you jump threw hoops to get paid. I can just see all the warranties coming in this year. at 150.00 max per car its going to be a tough year. Ive been hearing good things about global ceramic films. What can anyone tell me.
  4. How many of you guys can guarantee a perfect job with no dots in any of the windows. Is this even possible. I have a customer that thinks it possible. What do you do with customers that want this type of service on their car.
  5. Back window went ok, you can only remove the center headrest. You don't have to remove any rear brake light The 4drs are screwed. theres a hydrophobic coating on the glass and makes it an impossible install if your 2 steping the windows. Also the rear doors are like the bmw 7 series the bad ones to tint. The doors panels have to be removed because you cannot heat the glass up and pound out an creases you may have due to all the glass is laminated. Bringing car back to dealership and see what plan b is. Theres no way im pulling those door panels off the car. Probably 6k per panel. This car is now on my list of cars to never touch. Unless the dealer ship removes and reinstalls all door panels before and after installation. What a money losing day this turned out to be.
  6. there are no specs on 3m site??? Tser?????
  7. You really look at the film on a car with the sun at different levels in the sky. Some film will have a low. angle haze due to the ceramic particles. Usually only noticed when the sun is at a low angle to the window.
  8. Is this an advertisement or just showing off. Nice shop though
  9. Every manufacuter should be putting disclaimer stickers on every box they sell. Saying"THIS IS JUST A ROUGH APPROXIMATION OF THE SUNS IR HEAT SPECTRUM." BUT THEY DONT" in order to trick the customer into buying a more expensive film that in the long run will only keep out maybe 2-3% more heat. Look at pinnacle and stratos. So Close on specs and "TSER" JUST A MAGIC SHOW IF PRESENTED WITH NO DISCLAIMER. Its sad that people use these with no disclaimer.. Or should we all be honest and just say "Wrong". I guess every man has his fudge limit.
  10. I did read some info on color blindness problems and being diabetic. I told him to come back in a few weeks and lets investigate more.
  11. It was electric blue color with black interior. I wonder if the new lights of the cars are causing this. I have not driven the car at night.
  12. Customer calls and says his Madico charcool 05% is looking reddish at nighttime and daytime on his rear window and rear side windows. The film is a greenish color. So I don't know what he is talking about. Its installed on a 2019 Prius regular one." Not prime" I looked at it today and I don't see reddish color. I can see maybe the rear window looking reddish at night due to the angle of the window or the new projector beam head lights or the orange heater lines. He sees one thing and I see another. Could it be the glass.
  13. Your said what. "4 days prior I prepared by taking pics of all the windows and paint areas around them in case there were scratches/damage after tinting."" NO ONE DOES THIS." You sound like the guy that eats 90% of his meal and complains to get a free meal. I wonder if your yelp reviews are 70% 1 stars and 30% 2 stars. Dude!! 4 days before you take pics predicting this would happen. Ive seen this before and pisses me off that people try this. Now! if you had 4k video in front of the shop that same day 5 mins before handing over the keys. You might have a case. Remember your in snow territory. Your car probably has marks everywhere. Once your car leaves the shop your done. How can you 100% say it was them" You can't" Thats like blaming someone for stealing your wallet and later on you find your wallet. You end up feeling really stupid and bad about it. I believe we know what really happened
