Re: Star leg not filled

That needed flexing from outside, not inside, heat is an enemy as it causes the glass to expand making to leg close up and not allowing resin to flow. Did you polish until the polish had dried as this is when the shine appears.

Never cure until the repair is full is something I teach over here.

Re: ONE YEAR

I found adding long crack was counter productive, all it did was tell people not to bother having a small chip repaired until it became longer. I am very capable of doing long cracks and have taught many people over the years how to do them. Increasing sales in my humble is about getting away from a...

Re: Curing under pressure

Glass Patch that is odd, I have never manged to get enough UV through the windshield even to set pit fill resin, reason being there is a built it uv inhibitor. Novus used to teach curing under pressure by resting the light on top of the injector at an angle, or at least they did when they trained me...

Re: Windshield Repair Practice

Can I also add, when practicing it is a good idea make the damage wet before starting the process and also to do a good few outside. The wet gets you used to drying out and the outside gets you used to the idea of direct and indirect uv. Making sure you master these things will make the quality of y...

Re: Besides dealerships, what other places make good fleet accounts?

Stand on the end of your road for an hour writing down the names on the side of trucks, there is a start. Find a local mobile tool sales guy, as they are magic at finding fleets. Local public services, school buses the list is endless. I drove past a sewage works for 18 years before finding out they...

Re: Rubbing a cork on from the inside, what's it for?

It is supposed to help the resin flow, I have tried it on numerous occasions and found it not doing very much, I much prefer flexing the break from the outside. Also if you know how glass breaks it helps you understand why flexing from the outside is the way to go. I may be wasting my time but here ...

Re: Build Customer Base

Sorry missed this one.

I built my base by knocking on the doors of large fleets, my best ever customer took me 17 calls before I got my first job off of them. They then spent about $2,000 a month with me for the next 17 years, I then trained them up and sold them two Delta kits

Re: Pit Polish

You must be leaving an air bubble in it then, certainly you do not have a nice flat surface, a picture would be great.
