The Wunderdog had really old tint on it, something like over 10 years old. It was faded, hazy and just plain looked tired. This tech tip will help anyone who has that faded “purple tint”, the “bubble-in-the-middle tint”, or the “I just got popped by the cops and have-to-remove-my-tint” tint. Never again will you have to pay a tint shop or sit there with a razor and destroy your defroster lines, interior panels or your fingers. Heck, be like Yamz and charge your friends to remove their old tint (what a jackass).

TOOLS NEEDED: Household glass cleaner (with ammonia), large black trash bag and the sun.
