  1. Thanks, my family is safe and that’s the main thing. I just wanted you to know that you helped put some great people in my life that I would never have met otherwise. Thanks Rick!
  2. I half to give a huge shout out to some truly great people that I met on here. Most have never heard of me, but I met some great people on her e years ago. I live in Lake Charles La. and we were just devastated by Hurricane Laura. Two old friends that I met on this site, John Flemming “Tint Wizard” and John Champaign JR. “Cajun Tinter” have reached out to offer support, just out of the blue because they are awesome people! Right now there’s really nothing anyone can do, but just remember, there are great people on this country that would give you the shirt off of their back, and these are two of them that I would have never met of out wasn’t for this site. Thanks Tintdude for a great place to meet really cool people!

  4. The bottom of that window needs to "snap" into what I call a reverse curve. Sunbreakers is correct, tension is your friend on this one, the bottom, outside edges only need to shrink at the very bottom, and when installing the bottom center snaps back into a reverse curve compared to the rest of the window.
  5. It most likely is your enviroment , lines or clusters are usually caused by cleaning or handling issues. Scattered specks can be blown in to the window film with exposed adhesive, it can be contamination from your slip solution etc!
  6. Are they scattered throught the window, or they in lines or clumps?
  7. Kind of long winded, skip forward a few minutes and watch, then comment!
  8. Check this "helpful hint" out. Some people freak out over a little soapy water on their car, I would love to see the reaction of the typical BMW owner with this guy "tuning" their power windows up!!

    All types of stainless are available, note that S30V is preferred for knives. Here is some good information, below! Very Wear-Resistant 420V Stainless Steel The addition of vanadium and carbon gives 420V excellent wear resistance. It can replace tool steels in highly abrasive applications. Multipurpose 304 Stainless Steel From cookware to chemical-processing equipment, 304 is the most commonly used stainless steel. High-Temperature Multipurpose 309 Stainless Steel Often used in heat exchangers and furnaces, 309 provides good corrosion resistance at elevated temperatures because of its high levels of chromium and nickel. High-Strength Multipurpose 301 Stainless Steel Able to withstand repeated stress and wear, 301 provides the strength required for applications such as springs and fasteners. Economy-Grade 430 Stainless Steel Use 430 for decorative and light-duty applications, rather than outdoors or in extreme temperatures. Weldable 321 Stainless Steel When an application requires welding, 321 is the stainless steel of choice because its titanium content preserves corrosion resistance around the welded area. Super-Corrosion-Resistant 316 Stainless Steel Molybdenum gives 316 excellent corrosion resistance for use in a variety of marine and chemical-processing applications. Strengthened Corrosion-Resistant A286 Stainless Steel Combining the corrosion resistance of 316 with titanium for added strength, A286 is often used to make fasteners and engine components. High-Strength Corrosion-Resistant 2205 Stainless Steel Often used in caustic, high-pressure applications, 2205 resists cracking even when faced with a combination of tensile stress, corrosive chemicals, and heat. Easy-to-Machine 303 Stainless Steel For fabricating fittings and fasteners, 303 machines quickly without sticking to cutting tools. Very Easy-to-Machine 416 Stainless Steel One of the most machinable stainless steels available, 416 contains sulfur for fast machining without clogging cutting tools. It’s used for gears, screws, and shafts. Wear-Resistant 410 Stainless Steel Often used for fasteners and valves, 410 withstands abrasion and can be heat treated for greater hardness. Mold-Quality Wear-Resistant 420 Stainless Steel This hard material can be finely polished to a very smooth surface, making it suitable for fabricating molds. Ultra-Hard Wear-Resistant 440C Stainless Steel One of the hardest stainless steels after heat treating, 440C offers excellent wear and abrasion resistance. It's often used for bearings, valves, and knife blades. Impact- and Wear-Resistant 440A Stainless Steel Resistant to damage from impact and abrasion, 440A is often used for cutlery and valve components. Blade-Quality Wear-Resistant S30V Stainless Steel With excellent strength and wear resistance, S30V is a preferred material for knives and cutlery. Corrosion-Resistant High-Strength 17-4 PH Stainless Steel With a higher chromium content than 15-5 PH, 17-4 PH offers better corrosion resistance as well as high strength. Also known as 630 stainless steel.
  10. On those I would suggest a less experienced person use liner scraps to make a pattern. Once you get a good fit with a liner, then transfer the pattern to film, then lick and stick!
  11. Dave, sorry to hear this but other opportunities await! Might you have posted on here as Dave from the big L company years ago?
  12. Just an FYI, MSC Industrial has the Steinel heat gun kit on sale now. It has a bunch of useless attachments and a aluminum hard case for $149.00. I get their sale paper, its Item #GR87149548 if anyone was interested in buying one. The kit includes attachments and rods to weld plastic, shrink tubing assortment as well as some other tidbits!
  13. DOOTINT, are you saying that you didn't count sheeps when you went to bed last night?
