    Window tint removal

    Whats the best way to get the tint off your windows?
    Mine were tinted from new so am not to sure how the quarter windows and rear window are done.
    Front windows aren't a problem.
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
    Then again............

    if you take the rear tint off you could damage the strips on the windows
    use a hair dryer to heat up the tint an pull it off once its nice an Hot
    and to get the left over glue off i used White Spirit on a cloth

    yeah that is true, dont listen to the blade thing on the back window, wil rip the heated strips apart. but you can use a blade on the side windows.

    Isn't the tint affixed to the glass at the factory, rather than aftermarket applied.

    So the rear tints will have to stay then.

    Do you think it would look ok with the front tints removed????
