Well I called around today to check prices on tinting my front windows and striping the old tint.
Everyone wants around $45 to JUST strip the old tint plus $60 to retint.
That is just for the 2 front windows.
So me being bright lol. I decided to try and remove it on my own this morning.
The tint came off fairly easy BUT the glue did not come off very well.
Any ideas on how to remove this glue?

you can use windex as well...

or anything else with amonia (sp?) it breaks up the glue... which is why you don't clean your windows with anything that has amonia

Contact cleaner or carb spray and a razor blade. Anyone notice a pattern here? I use those two things for EVERYTHING:rauch08:

It just depends on how much time you have. BE CAREFUL OF DOOR PANELS! It works best to spray it on a rag, rub the rag on the glue to loosen, then use the blade.

Coffee anyone? You'll never guess what I make it with:p

What did you use to get the tint off. I did mine about 4 months ago with a steamer. There was almost no glue, just a small spot here and there. Whole thing took about 2.5 hours with pulling the panels off.

Razor blade on a t-handle there really is no need to mask anything if you just keep it neat and clean while you're doing it.

Acetone and a rag, then Windex. Acetone available at Wal-Mart in a Quart can. Acetone is the main ingrediant in nail polish remover.
