Not yet... Calling a guy back today. Like I said, it's hard to get someone on site (not that I blame them... I wouldn't want to tint a car outside in the dust and wind, either).

I wouldn't be opposed to that. If other people are on board as well, the cost per person would be minimal.

Update: shop manager is out of the office on a big commercial tint job and probably won't be able to get back to me until Monday. In the mean time, I'm going to call around some more and see what other options we have.

Update: called a new place that sounds very interested. They will require an enclosed tent for quality control reasons (which is a totally reasonable request). The manager's tint guy is going to call me back today so we can go over some details, work out pricing, etc.

Edit: according to tinters, the New Beetle is one of the hardest cars to do, mostly due to its bubbly windows (stretches the tint). Just a little tidbit of information for you.

Stay tuned...

from what I hear, if a tint guy can do a new beetle rear hatch in one piece, he is worth his weight in gold plated tint film!

most shops will do it in two pieces putting the seam along one of the rear defroster lines.

The guy who did mine did it in two pieces. He still had to shrink it with a heat gun, but it turned out very well.

I may be up for a few dents, depending on the cost. But hopefully, I'll get them out before the show.

Please keep me updated, as every dent is more incentive for Dent Wizard to come to Fest. As it stands right now, I don't think we'll have enough people to make it worth their time, especially on a holiday weekend.
