White Streaks on glass that wont come off?

hey everyone, I bought my iroc about a month ago and i noticed that the window tint had been removed before i got it. Well in the sunset you can see these whit streaks that got all the way up the rear hatch window and it basically covers the entire hatch. Has anyone had this problem or have any idea how to fix it? thanks alot. -Matt

Try to take some brake Cleaner to it. It should cut right through it. It seems that its old glue and may still be on there. I removed the tint on my rear hatch about 3 weeks ago and there was glue everywhere and a friend of mine let me in on a hint how to remove the glue(he used to work at a tint shop). Which was the brake cleaner. Cut Straight through it when sprayed on and taken off with a rag. Go get a can of it from walmart-autozone-etc. Try that first I think its only 1-2$ a can it works Really well. Surprised the hell out of me.

Re: White Streaks on glass that wont come off?

i use invisible glass, though i dont know if it will take off the old tint glue, it's worth a try, Invisible glass has taken off some extreme bird ***** off of any of my cars

Re: White Streaks on glass that wont come off?
