Πριν μήνα

We are champions of the DIY lifestyle, BUT sometimes it truly pays to have a PRO handle certain jobs. Well, I believe that window tinting is one of those things that you do not want to get involved in. So, to put this to the test we brought a Pro down to the garage and we're about to go toe to toe ... why are you still reading this? Go press play

In my experience window tinting is one of those things that you have to do to get better at you know the first time you're going to suck at it and you might suck at it the next few times but if you notice you will get better with each when do you do. The first window I ever tinted sucked and I had to peel it off and redo it but the second time I did it it was good. A couple of months ago I decided to redo the door windows on my car and they came out great. You just get better as you go with the more windows you do. I'm still not brave enough to try my rear windshield though. I've never shrunk tint before and I'm kind of scared to mess it up but I may still give it a shot and if I screw it up I'll peel it off and bring it to somebody who really knows what they're doing.

if you see the subaru wrx i just posted on my youtube i paid someone from an instsgram post i found $150 for %10 window tints which some places i called told me they dont exist and apparently he had them, and the job was so badly done🤦‍♂️ there are bubbles in the lower back and they are still super bright and barely block any uv. I regret going the cheap route on this one especially for the wrx

Ceramic is definitely the way to go. Well worth it. I rode with one of my partners that doesn't have it and I was steaming in that damn car. I have 5% all around and 50% on the windshield of all my rides.

Ceramic tinting isnt needed in most cases unless you have some type of skin condition where the sun causes some type of allergic reaction. It blocks nearly 90% of UV rays, infrared radiation and heat. The best, yes, but definitely not needed for most.

Have you ever lied (even once--fibs, white lies, etc.)? Ever stolen (anything--the value is irrelevant)? Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust? If you have said "Yes" to these three questions, by your own admission, you are a lying, thieving, adulterer at heart; and we've only looked at three of the Ten Commandments. That's how God sees you. Nothing is hid from His holy eyes. Will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? Listen to your conscience. You know that you will be guilty, and therefore end up in Hell. That's not God's will. He provided a way for you to be forgiven. He sent His Son to take your punishment: "God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." He was bruised for our iniquities. Jesus then rose from the dead and defeated death. He is your "ticket" to Heaven. He is the "way," He is the "Door," the only "mediator." There is salvation in no other name, so pray something like this: "Dear God, I repent of all of my sins (confess them). This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Please forgive me and grant me your gift of everlasting life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen." Then read the Bible daily and obey what you read (see John 14:21). God will never let you down.

Zach, thanks for showing me the DIY vs. pro ins and outs. I learned a few things and discovered a new use for baby shampoo! The time consideration should include the time it takes to transport your vehicle to and from the Pro's shop and the wait time while he/she is working on it. Speaking of time, the time I spent watching your video was worth it!

I did my own tint and did my own alignment. That pre-cut best ceramic tint is cheap enough to try. It was fun the hard part is pre-shrinking and removing old tint. He did his own alignment as well in another video so I'm surprised he recommends this to a pro but not an alignment.

Before that I has a 2010 Scion TC the law at that was back as dark as you want (Limo tint). You couldn't touch the front.

Haha 5 or 6 cars and you would be good. Nope. Try 500 or 600 cars and you would be eh. The average tinter tints 1200 to 1500 vehicles a year. It takes 6 months to a year to be considered kind of comfortable. In order to learn to have to mess up and since no vehicle is the same your going to mess up ALOT. Oh and the reason you scratched the film on the front quarter window was because you looked at it ... suntek doesnt have a scratch coating thats worth anything. Suntek is 1 of the worst film companies on the market. Sunteks carbon line IS a dyed film and will fade out and bubble up in 2 to 3 years. Also the brief intro to film types was all wrong. 100% all of it.

We ALWAYS hand cut and we take a lot of pride in our work.

I just bought a new F250 STX crew cab. I had the back window, and rear door windows tinted at 15%, and the front windows at 20% with the ceramic tint. At first I thought that I should of went darker, but after a couple of weeks I am happy with it. The front windshield is massive and needs to be tinted. I know it illegal, but....
