Customer tries to remove own film

These customers were great, they had some platinum film on their Honda Civic that was getting hard to see thru so she tried removing the film herself, and did a pretty good job until she got to the bottom of the rear window, that’s where it got difficult. It’s very tight in this small space, so I was called in to finish the job. After much discussion with my customer about what would be right for his needs he decided he wanted the most heat protection possible. So we spoke about Sunteks CXP film, he could now block 56% of the heat, making it alot easier to cool the vehicle using the a/c. The customer was great, he set up a tent to keep me in the shade, turned on the tunes to keep the tinter happy, a happy tinter is a good tinter. It helped out alot and it was appreciated. First task was the old film needed to be removed this is always the hardest part, all the film needs to be removed then all the remaining glue and residue. I chose to use a steamer to heat the film with moisture to soften the glue and make removing the old film alot safer on the rear defroster lines and get the film off in as close to one piece as possible. Once all the old film was removed and glass cleaned the new CXP film was installed and the heat blocking had begun. While we were there he had a Mazda miata that he also wanted done, so we took care of those windows as well. We have already discussed another vehicle that the window has film that might need to be replaced in the future, my wife and i look forward to working with them again, great people.
