How many cars did you have to 'practice' on, or how many crappy tint jobs did you do before you felt confident in your skills? I mean confident in your skills to the point where you felt that you could sell your service and know that you could put out a quality tint job everytime?

I know alot of you will say that you've been tinting for 10+ years and you still learn something new everday :lol6 but in general how many cars did you get under your belt before you were pretty darn good??

Ummm, depends on the quality you are talking about. I'm a bit of an anomaly though, I've watched these guys for probably 7-8 years, and slowly started helping them here and there about december. I picked it up extremely fast, but I've been around it watching, talking, learning for a very long time. I would say after about 10 or so cars I was rather comfortable tinting most of the dealership cars we got in, mostly GM's and Nissans, but I had done a door here, a back glass there for a few months prior.

Well it should depend on how good the work looks. I mean you should know what looks good and what looks hacked. I would say it was probbably 100 cars before I myself felt confident and those were done over a 3-4 year period as well. Can't really say I guess it depends on your own standards of what quality is?

I looked it up and the official rule book said 63 cars and/or 4 months 2 weeks and 17 hours.

there isnt a real set time on geting it down, it depends on how many different cars you do. if all you do is hyundai sonatas your in for a surprise when a 89 bretta shows up.

but I would have to guess 60-80 cars and you should cover most of your bases enough times to stop sweating when the door chimes, or phone rings.

I was selling jobs on my 2nd car. granted I took 5 hours per car at that point and it was crap compared to what I am doing now. I didn't have much choice though. the tinter that trained me decided to retire a week after I started so I was sink or swim. like everyone else I learn new things every day and this site has been one of the greatest source of info and new ideas.

yeah Bee, but you still haven't learned to felt yet. I don't blame you though, If I didn't get paid more money to do it, I wouldnt do it.

there is a difference in learning and doing.....

besides, if you can do it, it can't be that hard.
