Who doesn't like FREE stuff?! Well, as a sign of our deep appreciation for our loyal customers throughout Southern California, we decided to hold a drawing for a free tint job on our FaceBook page. We gave our fans the chance to win a complete tint job ($180 value) with our most popular film, 3M Color Stable. On May 31st, 2016 we verified all valid entries, assigned numbers based on the order in which participants had commented on the giveaway post, and then used a random number generator to select the prize reciepient.

Drum roll please, as we are excited to introduce you to the lucky winner, Jose Gonzalez! Jose recently purchased a new family sedan in the anticipation of his first born child's arrival. With all of the time, and energy, well spent on preparing for his daughter, he hadn't yet been able to work getting his vehicle tinted in to his to do list. By luck of the draw, Jose happened to become our 1st ever, Free Tint Giveaway Winner, and we are pleased to share with you that he couldn't have been more deserving, or appreciative, of his prize! Jose is thrilled that his sweet little girl will no longer be melting, and squinting, in the heat of the sun, and that sunscreen for car rides isn't a concern anymore. What a great feeling to give back to our community, and to someone as grateful as Jose! Thank you for taking the time to enter our giveaway... Congrats on your new 3M window tint, but more importantly, congrats on your sweet new baby girl!

Window Film: What’s All the Hype About?

If you have never tinted one of your vehicles, you may be wondering what all the hype about?  Read on, for our top six reasons to install 3M Automotive Window Film on your vehicle today!

Just one of the many benefits of adding 3M Automotive Window Film to your vehicle!

Just one of the many benefits of adding 3M Automotive Window Film to your vehicle!

PROTECTION: ALL of our 3M Window Films cut out 99.9% of the sun's damaging UV Rays... With traffic in Southern California, we find ourselves spending more and more time in our vehicles, and as a result, we must take the necessary steps to protect not only our skin while driving.


COMFORT: Not only are we increasing our risk of skin damage and the possibility of cancer while wasting away on the 91 Freeway, we are also physically drained by the sun's heat beating down on us. No more squinting, moving visors, or holding up papers to escape the sun's wrath... No more little ones screaming on the car ride while being forced to stare directly in to the sun.


PRIVACY: Who wouldn't want to pick their nose without an audience?! Just kidding! In all seriousness, privacy is just another one of the many benefits of installing tint on your vehicle... A medium to dark tint will allow you to be able to leave items sitting in your vehicle without the fear of a thief catching a quick glance at what's inside.


STYLE: Take your vehicles appearance to the next level with any of our 3M Automotive Window Films. We have options that meet everyone's taste, thus allowing you to customize your vehicle to meet your needs and priorities. Whether high heat rejection and high visibility are your preference, or blacked out windows that match your blacked our rims, and lights, we've got you covered!


INVESTMENT: This may come as a shock to you, but you are able to protect the financial investment you have made in your vehicle by simply having window film installed on all the windows, including the windshield (we have legal, clear options for this). By cutting out 99.9% of all of the UV rays, from all of the windows in your vehicle, you are now protecting the interior from the inevitable warping, fading, and cracking caused by the sun's damaging rays. Since your vehicles interior will be in pristine condition when you go to sale it, you will be thrilled with the higher price tag you can place on it when it's time for an upgrade.


SAFETY: Most people probably overlook the fact that window film has any safety benefits at all, however there are two main safety benefits that we can not live without... First and foremost, a layer of window film will prevent glass from shattering all over you, your passengers, and your vehicle in the event of an accident. Secondly, window tint reduces the sun's glare, thus allowing you to focus on the road, instead of battling the dangerous, near-blinding glare from all angles.


Now that you are aware of the plethora of benefits auto window film will have for you and your loved ones, what are you waiting for? Summer is just around the corner, so beat the crowds, and beat the heat! Call to schedule your appointment today!

Preparing the Glass for Tint Installation

Many people have questions about the process of tinting. Most often the questions are in regards to how we prepare the glass for installation.  First off, the tint is installed on the interior of the glass, and to ensure that we get a clean installation each and every time, we must thoroughly clean, both the interior, and exterior of the window prior to install.  You may now be left wondering why we must clean the outside of the glass if we install the tint on the inside... Well that's an excellent question! While the tint is in fact installed inside, we measure and shrink the film to fit the glass from the exterior, and then transfer it to the interior.  As a result, the tint will come in contact with both sides of the glass, resulting in the need for both interior and exterior to be spotless.  You may now be wondering what we use to clean the windows on your vehicle, and that is nothing more than a simple dish soap and water solution. We use a pressurized water pump system to apply the simple cleaning solution, and then proceed to clean every square inch of the glass, paying extra attention to  areas where we had to remove stickers (i.e. the warning stickers that come on the doors of brand new vehicles).  So while you may be tempted to clean your vehicle prior to brining your car in for service at our shop, we merely ask that your please clean out the interior of the vehicle so that our installers can easily climb in and out during the tint installation process. Also, if there is an excessive amount of dirt, debris, or pet hair, we ask that you vacuum it prior to dropping it off, as this creates a less than ideal tinting environment in which there is an increased probability of debris circulating in the air as we install the tint. You can wash your vehicle by hand, or take it through an automated machine wash immediately following service, just be sure that you do NOT touch the interior of the glass for at least a week. As a result, we do not recommend taking it to a full-service wash until the windows are completely dry and can be cleaned on the interior (please confirm dry times with the shop upon time of installation as they vary depending on the weather).
