Default DIY Tint removal that actually works!

Yes, I saw the other thread. DO NOT use that method, my way is WAY easier. My tint looked horrible in my project car (non-Hyundai). Re-tinting the car is way down at the bottom of the list of things to do, but I figured why not remove the old stuff to make the car look better now? I searched online and found a video on YouTube:

It is that easy. I used a Tobi fabric steamer (1500 watts) that I borrowed from my mother-in-law. The higher the wattage the better. I used the steamer or GooGone to remove the few tiny bits of extra glue left over on the window. The results were amazing!

That's how I removed mine. Doesn't get much easier then that unless you simply pay someone else to do it!
