Re: ADAS CALIBRATION

We have looked into doing calibrations as a stand alone service as well. I'm told there are others doing this successfully but so far I haven't talked to anyone who are. nixquax, are you doing mobile calibrations or do customers have to bring the cars to you? Are you concerned about the liability? A...

Re: Windshield Repair Olympics

I did not attend Auto Glass Week this year but it sounds like it was well attended, and for the second year in a row Delta Kits sponsored the Windshield Repair Olympics. I couldn't help but notice that the the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place competitors in the Windshield Repair Competition and Auto Glass Te...

Re: Air bubbles around bullseye edges.

Gotcha. I'm not opposed to trying to cure under pressure if nothing else works, but if it is happening frequently something else is going on, especially with a bullseye.
