  1. never thought of that. Ill try that too. Thanks guys for the help. I have some hope again haha.
  2. I’ll try that. I don’t mind practicing. It just hurts a little when you are wasting 6ft of tint at a time lol. This also wasn’t the best choice for a first windsheild to learn on. Thanks!
  3. Hey guys. I own Elite Finish Auto Spa and have been getting into tinting windows lately. Right now I just hand cut all my windows, I have a plotter but I figured I should learn to do it the old-fashioned way before I go the easy way. I have done a handful of side windows and have figured it out Without too much trouble yet.... I just tried to do my first windshield today and I’m struggling. It’s a 2019 Ford F150 with a 6 inch lift and 35 inch tires. So I’m working up and down a ladder trying to learn how to shrink film. I just can’t seem to find a technique that works for shrinking film. I tried wet, dry, the soap bar method and different techniques of rubbing it down. I am using Xpel XR PRIME. When I watch videos of guys online it doesn’t look overly difficult. But I either get a crease or I get myself in a bind where I have pushed the film around too much. This film I’m using does seem pretty thick, it is a ceramic film. Any help or thoughts? thanks! Lucas
