Woo hoo!! I own a tint shop :gap:
Just playing its my buddy's tint shop.
Yeah it is too far for you to drive just to get tint, just make sure you find a shop that guarantee their work and come with lifetime warranty.

There was a really good place by Ventura, and Reseda. They had a lifetime warranty, but they are no longer there. I guess it is the lifetime of their business, not your car. :gap:

Guys 1 recommandation...
Get the lifetime warranty from the manufacturer of their film not the company!! Alot of shops would offer this with through their own company and their work, but after a couple of years they shut down and there goes your warranty.
Or find a shop that has been around for a long time like my buddy's shop, so you would not be afraid of them jumping ship when you run into trouble.
With the lifetime from the manufacturer of the film you are better protected, if shop goes under you call the warranty number on the warranty paper to locate another shop that would provide service of the warranty. Ask the shop on their lifetime warranty is from the shop or from the film company, if it is from film company you want to see the paperwork (locate a warranty contact number of the manufacturer) that shows this before handing them the keys.

Go for Solargard. They come with manufacturer lifetime warranty that works great. It is valid anywhere in the united states, just call them and they will find closest shop to ya to do warranty work.

30~45 min for roll up windows, banner is another 30 min (if they have to cut from scratch). Whole thing would be 45 min if they have more than 1 guy working on ya car..

Cool theres no like period of time after its done when you have to do anything special... like not roll down your windows?

Also... are the shops usually open friday nights....

And last... do you make an appt. for this type of thing or just kinda show up?

Thanks!
