Jeff, this might fall in to the paint stripper catagory...but I've had decent results using graffitti remover to soften some materials that other chemicals wouldn't touch (like concrete floor patch removal from a metal blade)

The only mechanical method I have tried so far is wiping with chemicals such as goo gone and ammonia based window cleaner, and solvents.

The thing is, it isn't sticky, it is hard as a rock. Most likely from decades of Arizona sun and heat. That may well be why the usual methods mentioned on web sites have not done a thing.

In the list of chemicals I tried were aircraft paint stripper. Didn't do a thing for the film that was left after I peeled the tint off, but....I can't remember

Did you see Farham's suggestion? Those things seem to take off just about anything, including stuff you don't necessarily want taken off

I did, but I am unsure about using abrasives. There must be a better answer with chemistry?

i just did the front windows of the tundra, i used a heat gun to help loosen the film and the glue then used goof off and 0000 steel wool to clean the glue off then cleaned the windows as required with viniger/water mix and paper towel worked really well.

Is goof off different than goo gone?

Goof off I think is xylene, at least the old one was IIRC....and goo gone is citrus based with a little petroleum.
Xylene is far more toxic, probably causes cancer in lab rats, and therefore, actually works.
