Learn how to apply tint to your car windows with expert tinting tips in this free car detailing video clip.
Hello! My name is Ron Sanders of Personal Touch Custom Auto World. This is my assistant Sean Whitlock, and we are now going to apply the film to the windows and cute the patterns. Again, we sprayed the soap and water solution, what this allows us to do is to apply the film, cause the film to stick, and to maneuver it into position as we cut the film. When cutting the film, as Sean also has, he first squeegees it down to make sure that it doesn’t move. This allows you to get a sharper and straighter cut, using the edge of the glass. He’s now using his blade, using the edge of the glass as the template, and he’s cutting the exact shape of the window. Now, this may vary depending on if the car has window frame or doesn’t. This car actually does not have a window frame, which makes it easier, but still you have to make a precise cut because you want all your edges to be even. Be very careful because these knives are very sharp. Always round the edges, that makes it more difficult for the tint to peel. After cutting the top and the side, Sean will then slide the tint up, usually a quarter of an inch. This allows the window to be completely tinted with no gaps at the top or bottom. Standing rule of done is at the top. As long as you can see daylight through the edge, it’s low enough so that the window can roll up and down without causing the tint to interfere with the window track, which can also cause the tint to peel. After cutting the pattern, he now squeegees it down. You notice these objects here that are looking like fingers; we call those fingers. What he’s getting ready to do is heat those fingers out. That concludes the application of the window film segment.
