Hey, how do I remove proffesionally done tint?
Candy got the 2 new doors, after car accident and Amanda/LIL PZEV found these doors for me, they came with very nice dark tint. I don't have enough to get it all around, so wanted to remove it.
But how?
With hairdryer? Maybe?

Anyone please help, thanks.

huh dunno carm. I'm sure you could prolly use soapy water, but I dunno if a hairdryer would do it considering heat makes it stick...I think...but hey I'm no expert so no clue hun :D

A new pack of single edged razor blades, you can peel the tint off, and the glue gets scraped off with the blade.

Use some Niteshade haha

Would Windex work to take it off? I know you're not supposed to use it on tint because it will ruin it...

The Goo Gone worked wonderfull.
And once I found a peeling point, I peeled the whole tint off.
Then Goo gone and some Stoner's glass cleaner.
It was done, took 1 hour to do both windows though.

Thank you for the help.

Spray the window with windex/409/something with amonia in it , next use a plastic bag and stick it to the tint , the wetness of the agent used will keep it stuck . Walk away and come back in an hour , peel up the corner with a blade and pull the film off . Using this method makes it so the adhesive come mostly off . Once the film is off , look for adhesive and clean it off with the singe edged blade.
