    We had 65 degrees here today and by wednesday the high will be 24... Crazy ass Kansas weather.. Thought for sure it would rain today since I cleaned it yesterday but it did not suprisingly. Damn dust seems to attract to it like a magnet when it's waxed though and that sucks..

    If you do the tint.. I found out the hard way that its better to have it in a warm garage for a day or so after it gets done to help it "set"

    I had my last vehicle done in the middle of winter in one cold valley in Colorado, i think thats where the only issues I had with it started. The edges didn't attach good enough.
