    Maybe this should have it's own topic?

    Those bastards punctured my gas tank trying to ground an amp wire.

    Aside from install hacks stapling this finger to a sub enclosure or drilling through stuff into their hands, unfortunately damage by repair shops is quite common. Of course it was frowned upon by the store, so if you did something to a car and could repair it without anyone knowing that was best. The repair or a portion was taken out of your check too so I found the best fix was not to do it in the first place.

    There were accidents every month though. Gas tanks, gas lines, wire harnesses and even a/c evaporator cores. One shop had a drywall screw all the way through a BMW computer to mount a cross over in a kick panel.

    And of course dash scratches or damage too. I saw our inner store delivery drive back right into a newly restored older box car Nova. Need less to say the owner was not too thrilled. Down south there was one tech who lost control doing a "test drive" and totaled a new Vette and the other when a guy went to pull a car around and didn't see the big bright tag that read "NO BREAKS" on the steering wheel. We lost a old Camaro and a water cooler in that accident.

    When I worked for Crown Auto years ago, they would publish damage done to cars. Little stuff like the mechanic forgetting to put oil back in the engine and burning it up. Starting a cars interior on fire welding exhaust and a few cars that fell off the lift!

    I got my tint done this morning. I went in at 8AM and
    was out the door at 8:50AM. Tint looks great! :D
    The 35% was perfect...not too dark like the 20 but
    darker than the legal 50. I am impressed and loving
    the new look.

    I can post pics if anyone is interested.

    I was planning on stopping over today to check things out. I have a friend with me interested in having his Civic (shhh) done. I also have a Town and Country (front windows only) that I want done. Does that count for two ot three more. No need to answer. See you over lunch.

    Thanks! Can't go wrong with the 35%. From the inside, it's not even that dark.

    Now I need to focus on removing that gap inside the wheel well. :D

    also...any idea on how much the wagon would be? I'll be doing all 6 side windows, and the front two not as dark as the back 4.

    I was wondering if someone could post the shops hours online real quick because if I call, I'll either forget them or misplace them (if written down)....this way they'll be here for me to see.

    Thanks.

    I'll try to call by the end of this weekend to get an appointment for next week (get paid bi-weekly...which means a week from Thursday).

    this is what i get for not reading the board often.

    Anyway, I'm in for a wagon tint. Out next weekend, but I'll call next week to set something up.

    35% looks nice and I've had that before, but does anyone have pics of 50%? What brand tint is this Neef? You told me a long time ago but I forgot.

    I believe that's good stuff. I think I'll definately have to get in there this next week to get my car done. Pay day on Thursday..stupid bi-weekly paychecks. Anyway, I recall seeing something on tintdude.com posted from you when you were first starting up your shop...looks like you got some good info from other shop owners. Hope we can get enough people in to get you some decent business and get you some more jobs (I know if all goes well, I'll definately recommend you to others).

    Neef, I will be calling you this week to setup an appointment for later this month. I just picked up 2005 WRX last Friday, and am looking forward to tinting it. I will want 35% all around with a brow and a lifetime guarantee.

    Thanks for helping out on the price!

    I am working on striking a deal with the Gjerde's in Savage at the moment. They offer tinting, and 3M film. They are a well respected business and have been around for many years which is nice because you know your lifetime warrenty will be serviced if a problem ever surfaces. At the moment they will give $10 off a job for MN subaru club members but I would like to see that increased. I will try to keep you all posted.

    I'm sorry for the hijack.
    I did not get any "scratch my back, I'll scratch your back" type of deal with Solar Shield. I am just trying to let everyone know about what they offered the club including myself. I thought about starting it's own thread for this, but since the title of the thread was "Window tint group buy special?" I felt it was appropriate. I guess I was wrong. There is now a thread for what I mentioned earlier and I will consider this issue an end with this apoligy.

    hmmm 10.00 off? Um ok, i will go back to my original pricing, and give you all 15.00 off!!! how about that?!?!?! FYI our tinter worked for Gjerdes for over 10 years and was his best tinter....Im sure if you brought your his name up to Scott, Scott would know exactly who our guy is....

    So anywho, 15.00 off sound fine to you guy??? :D

    JP you all get the same pricing we have been giving out...no 10.00 off junk here...

    I'm interested but that's once I get the new ride so if this is still going at the 10 people price I'd love to get in on it for the pay now tint later plan. Thanks!

    Pete

    Also, did anyone get the 50% legal limit? Does it look ok? I don't want to deal with getting pulled over for it.
