    Learning Window Tinting

    I want to start mastering window tinting to eventual offer it with mobile detailing. Any advice on where to learn or buy material from? I`ve tinted the glass on my old Nissan Maxima before and it came out alright, but I would love to learn more. Especially on the latest and greatest products and techniques.

    I`m ready to buy a roll to tint the glass on my Pathfinder myself.

    Thanks!

    We had a representative from 3M come teach us over I believe 3 days. It was great and well worth the cost.

    This was back in 2000, so unfortunately the cost and duration are no longer in my brain.

    I would love to learn. I`m trying to find someone in my area that does decent work for my car. I did the windows in my house and managed to remove the bubbles.

    Learning Window Tinting

    But first...... Can you install a screen protector on an iPad with no lint or bubbles? just kidding. I never messed with tint but I can put a screen protector made of glass or plastic on anything. Maybe I`d be good at tinting.

    Ray- take a roll of tint, a 12 pack of cold ones and hit up your local salvage yard or pick a part-

    lots of vehicles to practice on.. and if you do a good job, just pull the door and you got yourself an advertisement door right there

    The "Ron method"
    Formerly the "Best Detailer", now just Super Wax Waster Man. Not necessarily tactful, but normally right. It`s good to be da King !!!
