window tint glue removal?
I got tired of the cave effect, so I peeled off the after-market tint on
the side windows of my 100. The tint came off easily, but it left
behind a layer of filmy glue. Any suggestions on how to best get
that glue off?

try methyl hydrate... or water down varsol is used for road tar removal at the car wash a friend works at..

Go to a auto paint store. 3M makes an adhesive remover that is safe on paint, rubber and plastic. I think I have some around if you want to give it a try.

razor blade and windex ...... works charms.. the windex eats the glue.. ive done it at liest 6 times on diffrent cars.. tipically takes just a few min per window.. never had a issue when using windex and razorblade

wd40 works on everything, amazing stuff :thumb:

ya but your going to get wd40 all over your interior.. and i dont know about you but id rather get windex over my interior than wd40.. oh ya yor going to need about 3-5 razor blades per window.. they go fast.. and its much much eaiser with a sharp blade..

Ammonia and water - mixed fairly strong, and clean/new single-edge razor blades.

thanks guys very much for the ingredients... the MR2 needs this done really badly.Ammonia much cheaper than Windex- I can mix that up fairly easily.

Just recently took some tint off my windows. Razor blade first, then windex. Worked good.
