my car has windows tinted....its s**t tint, been on for 13 years, and its starting to peel and bubble....the other day i peeled of the rear window...most of it...and jus used a hairdryer and my gf's nails ( i got her to do it :D ), but it takes too long to do...is there a quicker way?


i would also like to know what is good for taking off the unclear sticky s**t it leaves behind...but without damaghing the rear dimister lines.

I use a heat gun and a single side blade then prepsol Wax and grease remover to remove glue works well
