Street 107 around Orussey.

Applying it to the windows without a shitload of bubbles is impossible!

The windows must be perfectly clean and use a little dish soap in the water used to wet the windows before applying the film

yep, soap water prevents it from sticking immediately, but the problem here is that the fuckers dont cut the stickers exactly and there will always be ugly gaps, usually ppl would stick over the glass frame and trim it down with a "sharp" penknife

There was a big new place on 155 in TTP that did window glazing, very close to Open Arms, not sure if it's still there. I'll have a look next time I'm going past there.
