Solar Gard® Transforms Small Business with
Ultimate Tint Shop Makeover
A Different Shade tint shop receives business boost of a lifetime

Solar Gard® has completed the finishing touches and revealed the incredible results of
the Solar Gard Ultimate Tint Shop Makeover that recently took place at A Different
Shade in Kennewick, Washington. The Ultimate Tint Shop Makeover is yet another way
Solar Gard has reaffirmed its commitment to their window film dealers.

As a result of a contest held at SEMA 2008, Solar Gard completely transformed this tint
shop, owned by Cedro and Tiffany Rodriguez, and coordinated with them to redesign
and renovate their small business. The Ultimate Tint Shop Makeover provided
everything a tint shop needs to sustain their business in tougher times and grow sales in
2009 including: new furniture, lighting, indoor and outdoor signage, new marketing
materials and a fresh coat of paint on the shop’s interior and exterior.

“The Solar Gard Ultimate Tint Shop Makeover experience has been truly unbelievable. It
is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a small business owner,” said Cedro Rodriguez, co-
owner of A Different Shade. “Solar Gard has given us everything we need to grow our
business and enhance our customer credibility as a professional tint shop.”

"We are thrilled with how Solar Gard has transformed our shop,” commented Tiffany
Rodriguez, co-owner of A Different Shade. “There are no words that could describe how
excited we are to come to work every morning knowing we have a professional space to
show our customers. We are so very grateful to Solar Gard and their amazing team.”

The makeover’s exciting and dramatic transformation can be experienced by viewing
