Tint & Sound…I Love You Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

John Lennon shook up British aristocracy with his 1965 psychedelic Phantom V Rolls Royce, which is now being featured at Bonhams auction house in London, along with seven other notable RRs to celebrate the brand’s 92nd year.

According to Rolling Stone, the most unusual feature was the one-way passenger windows made of darkened Triplex Deeplight glass to shield riders from any gawking. Lennon admitted that “If it’s daylight when you’re coming in, it’s still dark inside the car – you just shut all the windows and you’re still in the club.”  The icon of rock also enjoyed on-demand music from a state of the art Philips Auto-Mignon AG2101 “floating” record player with a suspension system that prevented the needle from jumping when the car was in use.

Window tint film reduces a car’s interior heat by 60 percent and protects its interior from the damaging rays of the sun. Most important, it protects your car’s occupants by blocking 99% of UV rays which can cause skin cancer. It also deters theft, making it hard for would-be crooks to see inside the vehicle. Film can also be applied to SUVs, vans, RVs, and boats. In Pennsylvania on passenger vehicles, tinting is permitted only along the top five inches of the windshield. Side and rear windows may not be covered or treated with tinting that allows a light transmittance of less than 35%. All windows except the rear window must contain two-way glass. Reflective or mirrored material is not permitted on any vehicle windows. All vehicles with window tint film must have dual side-view mirrors.

Don’t forget your home or office. During the warm months, window tint films reduce the solar heat gain up to 80 percent at the glass, especially on east- and west-facing windows, keeping your house or office cool and minimizing summer utility bills.  Window tint films also eliminate the chance that your furnishings, window coverings and paintings will fade or discolor from sun damage by blocking up to 99 percent of UV rays. Decorative window tint films in reflective, etched and frosted patterns increase your privacy with all of the energy-saving benefits.

Yes, you can do it yourself but professional window tint installers, like T.N. Security, use of experienced hand cutting to ensure the right fit, professional-grade materials, and tools that don’t result in streaks and bubbles. What’s more, T.N. Security offers a lifetime guarantee.

During the month of July, when the sun is high in the sky, get 20% off residential and commercial window tint film installation.  Contact us.

Summer’s here and it’s time to roll down the windows and jack up the sound.  Your stereo speakers do more than just carry the sound of your favorite tunes, they need to be Bluetooth-enabled with your smartphone for safe hands-free phone conversations, to transmit the lovely voice of your GPS lady’s navigation commands, and stream your favorite music.  Team Nutz has lots of Bluetooth options. If your stereo speakers aren’t Bluetooth enabled, Team Nutz has Bluetooth receivers that plug into your aux-in jack and a small controller microphone that mounts to your visor or dash.  We also install vehicle-specific Bluetooth adapters that are integrated into your factory stereo. Team Nutz also has a wide variety of aftermarket stereos with built-in or add-on Bluetooth capability. These are complete systems with in-dash DVDs, AM/FM receivers and flip-out touchscreen monitors. Tap on the screen to scroll contact lists, stream MP3s, view photos, and more. Some even have an input for a rear view camera. Regardless of budget or solution, Team Nutz is here. Become Bluetooth-enabled. Ask us about Bluetooth Powered Keyless Entry, too.  During June, get 25% off retail of any installation package on CK3100.

Six types of first-time boat buyers & why detailing keeps your boat looking brand new

Six types of first-time boat buyers & why detailing keeps your boat looking brand new

Grow Boating released an April 2017 study that indicates who first-time boat buyers are. The results
transcended generation, income, boat type, and even geography, to yield six types of first-time boat
buyers, all with different motivations for getting out on the water:

Gear Guys / 14.6 million people / 17% of audience
Younger adults, mostly men, motivated by hobbies with specialized equipment. They are intrigued by
the tech and the specs. They crave details, so when they’re ready to buy a boat, they want to talk to the
experts. For the Gear Guys, it’s not about being on the water—it’s about the boat.

Merry Mates / 13.7 million people / 16% of audience
Family is at the core of everything they do— especially their activities. When it comes to boating, Merry
Mates rarely plan events, but they love going along for the ride. For them, boat ownership is the best
way to connect as a family.

Luxurious Leisurers / 15.1 million people / 18% of audience
Image-conscious and surround themselves with the finer things. They are always up for trying a new
hobby or activity. For the Luxurious Leisurers, owning a boat is an achievement that gives them a boost
in status.

Water Weekenders / 19.2 million people / 23% of audience
Enjoy being by or on the water but they didn’t grow up boating. In their social circles, the Water
Weekenders are the ones who plan outings on the boat – tubing, cruising, fishing and water skiing. For
them, owning a boat is driven by their desire to host friends and family.

Seclusion Seekers / 10.6 million people / 12% of audience
Nature lovers who consider their daily life stressful and full of obligations. Seclusion Seekers escape to
the great outdoors through activities like hunting, hiking, camping or kayaking. For them, boating is
about getting away from the daily grind and connecting with nature on the water.

Nautical Natives / 11.9 million people / 14% of audience
Boating is in their DNA so they understand the appeal of boating and take joy in getting on the water.
With lots of experience under their belt, Nautical Natives see themselves as boating experts. Their
desire to own a boat is rooted in continuing a family legacy.

Your Boat Can Be Entertaining and a Tax Deduction, Plus Detailing Packages That’ll Float Your Boat

Your Boat Can Be Entertaining and a Tax Deduction, Plus Detailing Packages That’ll Float Your Boat

TNT-Boat Slider

Tax deductions exist for both business and pleasure crafts. Please consult your accountant or tax attorney regarding any tax deduction. This is just an overview and doesn’t cover all parameters.

Declaring Your Boat as a Second Home

All you need to have on your boat to qualify is a sleeping place, cooking facilities, and a toilet (portable ones count, too) to get a mortgage interest deduction.

Entertaining Clients – Business Not Pleasure

You can deduct up to 50 percent of the costs of fuel, food, drinks, and mooring fees. But you’ll need to keep fastidious records.

Income Generator

If you are earning income off of your boat for charters or tours, you can also deduct all of your business expenses as long as you’re trying to make a profit from the boat and are not using it as a hobby.

Boat Donation

You know the old adage: “The happiest day is when you buy a boat and sell it.” Another option, if you’re done being a boat owner, is to donate it to charity. The IRS allows you to deduct the market value of your boat on the day you donate it (not what you originally paid for it).

Team Nutz is your go-to source for all interior and exterior detailing of boats, RVs and cars. Take advantage of these spring cleaning specials!

For boats, RVs, any vehicle, or home interiors consider Aqua-Fog Odor Eliminator. Aqua-Fog represents the new generation of odor eliminating products. The active ingredients in Aqua-Fog vapor react chemically with sources of foul odor and eliminate them, in contrast to similar products that simply mask and cover odors, leading to their eventual return once the scent wears off.  Packages start as low as $59.99

If you’re a new boat owner or your boat is up to five years old, take advantage of our Bronze Exterior Package with One-step Polish Wax.  Contact us for a price.

Making the Legal Case for Remote Starters

Making the Legal Case for Remote Starters

Did you know that warming up your unattended car in the winter is illegal in many states, including Pennsylvania, unless you have a remote starter? In PA, it’s a summary offense, which is a fine plus court costs. Thieves actively look for those telltale puffs of smoke coming from exhaust pipes of parked cars in the winter. So, if your car is stolen, there can be civil and even criminal liability for the reckless act of leaving a vehicle unattended while running. More than 700,000 vehicles are stolen in the United States each year, and up to half of the thefts can be blamed on driver error and, what’s more, only 50% of these stolen cars are recovered.

FAST FACT: According to Science Daily, today’s automobile is a highly sophisticated smart device with more than 100 microprocessors and 50 electronic control units. Its 100 million lines of software code are 50 times more than an F-22 Raptor military aircraft. That’s why when you want to buy a remote starter, you need to get expert installation from a certified installer. Contact the high-tech pros at Team Nutz now.
