Back to basics. Make sure before you leave to visit your customer you have prepared yourself to be self contained, how will you power your heatgun? Will you use your own power source or will you use the power supply at the customers premises.
Most customers will be more than happy to allow you to use their power supply, but with the trend for litigation regarding health and safety, you will come across the odd one who may be a little awkward regarding this.
Just In Case: Maybe consider purchasing a gas powered blow torch. It is becoming popular for heat shrinking rear windows with the gas powered devices nowadays as they are fast and mobile.
The beauty of these gas powered torches is that you can go anywhere and do the job. The flame is available at the squeeze of a trigger and you are not messing about with any power supply as they are self contained. just make sure you don’t linger too long on one spot when heat shrinking as you may burn some plastic or rubber trim.
Think about what possible problems you may face on the mobile installation, the secret to clean installations is that your mounting solution is as clean as possible, avoid tap water and it can have a lot of contaminants. Reverse Osmosis water is heavily filtered and would be a great thing to employ in your installations.
A good heavy duty LED torch would be a good thing to consider using, combined with a few pieces of white paper, it can make short work of cutting out the pattern for the rear window. The White paper will help reflect the light and make the job a little easier.
