Okay. The tint on my windows is so faded, it appears that the tint is just a layer of clear something-or-other.. I know ammonia is bad for tint so I guess I'll use that.. What about that back window? You know - the one with the defogger/defroster on it.. I heard you can sometimes ruin that by removing the tint.. Maybe I'll just leave that and tint over it.. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance...

Well, I used ammonia and paper towels.. The side windows are all clear but I'm not going to try the back. There's even a tiny bit of glue still near the bottom of the windows beneath the rubber - but I might get away with that if I don't put the new tint too far down.. I might do the tint myself and I might not.. It may be worth just having it all done professionally since I'm not going to mess with the rear window.. I DO want it to look perfect and I'd like to have someone to bring it back to if something goes wrong...

Don't forget, to do a proper tint job you need to remove the door panels.

Yeah. I'm guessing they don't pull the panels either.. I've done tint a few times and never did that - but I can see why it would be better. I hope I got the glue low enough so that it doesn't affect the new tint - but if I didn't, I guess the panels will need to be removed to clear it...
