just a quick cheap tip. after you remove all the tint just use a razor and some hot air.

cops made me remove my tint. here's how i did it. it's a longer process than these guys have been saying, but i found it got all the residue, even the stuff you couldn't get at normally.

remove the door panel. then removed the door glass. set door glass on a workbench, with something underneath it. an old blanket or some foam or something if there's any tint left on the window, peel the rest of it off.

from here on in, it's pretty much what the rest said. acetone, or whatever (i used paint thinner, worked excellent), let it sit for a few seconds, then 'scrape' off with a razor blade. the glue will be loose from the solvent, so you'll be more 'pushing' it off.

when you're done, make sure to rinse the window thoroughly (i used soap and water) and then window cleaner.

like i said, longer process, but it's all gone.
