Re: 5 Min Repair?

I have had people ask me how long the repair will take, and I tell them "on average, about 20 minutes, from start to finish" . Occasionally, one will remark "Why does it take so long? They guy at the carwash advertises 5-minute repairs. " I tell them "Well, you can have fast, or you can have good, b...

Re: Enviromental Impact

When someone calls me for wsr, its because they want to save their windshield, and in the process save money. I have been doing windshield repair since 1996, and have yet to meet a client that really gives a fig about whats in the windshield graveyards, or what the insurance companies spend on anyth...

Re: Replacing a Repairable WS?

I dont do replacement, but I can speak from what clients have said... people such as you describe wait until the ws has cracked out, then since its a poor candidate for repair, they get it replaced. However, the insurance companies look askance at replacement claims when they come too close together...

Re: Has Anyone Ever Used A Nail Curing Lamp?

Its actually not the lamp... its the bulb. You can get uv bulbs to fit just about any florescent fixture out there... from very cheap to high priced ... I went to WallyWorld and purchased a 2-pk of battery-powered florescent lamps for about $10 and then put in UV bulbs from Janvil. Any clever person...

Re: What do you folks think about....GT???

I believe GT will provide tech support even if you didnt purchase your equipment from them. Before I bought their products, I called them with technical questions about repairs, and they were very helpful. Then I took advantage of their free training, which they offered regardless of what system I o...

Re: What do you folks think about....GT???

I purchased the GT VP-5000 as well as their 20-20 system in 1997. Both are excellent products, and I am well-pleased with them. However, if I had it to do over, I would have put all the money into multiple 20-20 systems instead, even though the VP-5000 is an excellent system. Why? The VP-5000 is bul...

Hubby doing fine...

Hello everyone, My husband underwent knee replacement surgery on Tuesday (Jan 25), and is doing very well, although he did have an incredible amount of pain the first 24 hours. They had him up and walking yesterday, and more today. We expect to bring him home possibly on Saturday. The surgeon talked...

Re: Small town

I love this town! I have a regular client who has a huge cherry tree in her yard, and always makes sure to call me when they are ready to pick ... This past June I was out of town when they were ripe, so I missed out. Yesterday she called me to repair her windshield... she wont let anyone else touch...
