Your in a bad spot...would have been better off taking it to a pro to strip it for you (thanks for not bringing it to me though :passout )

What doesn't matter to you is how you SHOULD have done the back window because it's too late now.

It's going to take a lot of elbow grease with 000 steel wool to get it off and chemical of your choice (de solv it , simple green , ammonia mixture, etc )

If you don't value your defrost lines...another option now is to razorblade it down :poke

000 steel wool and simple green, ok. Thanks for the info. WIZARD..Now where did I go wrong?, I hosed it with slip"baby shampoo"and bagged it for 30 min. in the sun,started peeling in top corner pulling down diagonally toward the opposite corner,and immediately it started to separate,and the rest is history...

Soundslike you were doing it right ..however it's like I could describe to you how to tint a car professionally on here ..you can read it, do it for the first time..but won't worl out as well as described.

It's a "feel " thing when removing old film that's too far gone . I'm not sure where your from but 30 minutes in the sun isn't long enough unless your under real hot sun .

I have a method that's foolproof no matter how far gone film is , but I won't be typing it , whenever I do ,It's up for controversy despite my track record with it..it's only for people in the biz that have a bit of balls and are willing to invest a couple of hundred dollars so they can use it on more than one car :popcorn

If it's what we discussed on the phone before... I'm with ya... not for everyday publication.

Steam machine?

That's a start... a good plastic putty knife combined with a steamer may do the trick. The longer the handle the better and lift or scrape parallel to the lines.
